And here I though the forums had gotten the spellchecking upgrade..

I pity you MS Windows people. My macs have had the spell check feature for quite awhile. Including a built in dictionary / thesaurus. I can right-click any word and look it up instantly.

I just had my copy of Firefox 1.5 "check for updates" and it said there were none. Is 2.0 out as a beta or something?

No its not beta but I think they are maintaining seperate update threads for major revisions, which makes sense.

Yeah, I agree that the mac's safari is superior, but when at work, I gotta use the windoze... and this browser really helps out my spelling...

I just downloaded Firefox because IE7 sucks. I still use IE7 but Firefox does things that I can't figure out how to get IE7 to do.


Spell check? Come on I don't need that.

IE blows monkey balls. If 3 out of 4 browser manufacturers can generally agree on standards compliance and actually release fixes for their products, why can't the fourth? The problem with IE is that is it was standards compliance all the FrontPage sites would break. GOD FORBID that would ever happen.

Dear God,

All I want is good will to all and peace on earth. Oh ya, and if you can do something about IE.

Thanks
-Rolf
