It has a built-in spell check that underlines misspelled words in red as you type ANYWHERE online. It's so awesome, and I no longer have an excuse for spelling stuff wrong.

Too bad hardly any of my current extensions work with it... oh well.

Interesting. May have to check it out.

Can you add to the spell check database, so it doesn't underline common slang terminology that you may generally use? i.e., can I add the word 'gonna' so it doesn't underline it every time I type it? :-?

First of all, the coolest part is that slang terms like gonna are already in there, so it doesn't underline them.

Second of all, i guess firefox is for nerds if downloading a program is nerdy behavior. Other than that, i really can't understand why anyone would still use IE 6. Tabs WILL change your life, but IE 7 will soon be the standard.

Cool. I use both Firefox and IE7 and it's force of habit that I use Firefox. Using Firefox is probably for nerds, but I don't have a problem with that. ;-D

What do you mean by "bring tabs up" and "manually?" There's a number of ways to make a new tab. Ctrl-T, clicking a link with the scroll wheel, or by putting the new tab button into the toolbar under Tools>Options.

Under Tools>Options>Tabs you can check to "Always show tab bar"

Default is to not show it when one window is open.


Also, technical difference between what... Firefox 1 and 2 or Firefox and IE?
