    I just got through downloading Firefox for the first time. After setting the minimum font size, I had to turn down the brightness. This browser is really bright! :eek:

    It feels weird using this browser after using Safari for so long. So far everything seems amazingly similar to Safari, except that the tabs are bigger and the fonts are also bigger in drop down menus. Just now noticed as I'm writing this that spell check is AWESOME :) .

    Another thing I'm noticing as I'm previewing this post is that loading pages are FAST! :eek:

    I haven't noticed that it's extra bright but it could be the lack of brushed metal.

    It's fast for a lot of people and slow for just as many, I believe. It's faster for me than Safari and works really well and the available extensions are great.

    Maybe it's because the tabs are so big.

    Talk about blind, I've got the font size set to 24. :eek:

    Geeze, get your bloody eyes checked mate!

    We had this conversation ages ago and we decided then that Mr Magoo had eyes like an eagle compared to yours. Go get the blinkers taken off at your local optometrist.

    I thought it was a bit Windows XP. Then I downloaded the Gr Apple theme and all was right again.

    So THAT explains your gibberish before! :p




    But really, Safari uses OS X's built in spellcheck.

    Yeah, sometimes it'll catch a word, and sometimes it won't. I would always have to check it against Google.

    This Firefox spell check is 'so' sweet. ;) :)
