    That allows me to right click and do the spell check within my browser? I do it in safari, but it seems firefox 1.5 doesn't allow it.

    Right, this is one of the reasons people like to gripe and call Firefox "not a Mac program".

    There is a second-best option. Firefox 2 beta has inline spell checking. It uses its own spell checker with its own dictionary, not the OS X stuff. Of course, this is useless if you rely on other plugins that aren't compatible with the beta.

    Also, Camino development versions use the same checker as Firefox 2.

    Bummer. I thought it was a good time to go back to firefox. Guess I was mistaken. ;)
    I'm going to try the beta though. I'm not using anything special that I won't miss.

    The Google Toolbar has a spell check in it.
    It works... not the best, but it's fine for the most part.

    The Firefox 2 beta 2 is more stable than the current production version and the spelling works well but it's true that some extensions don't work with it yet.

    I give you: SpellBound Development version.

    Works fairly well with 1.5.0.x, but I agree with the above posters that Firefox 2.0b2 is much, much better, and the built-in spell checker is better than SpellBound. (Though installing new languages is a bit of a hassle, for now.) :)

    Does firefox 2.0 Beta 2 have different skins you can use rather than the default? I use the brushed skin to trick myself into thinking that I'm using Safari. :p

    What skin is that? Nice and clean, reminds me of the Omni theme for Camino.
