    I use SpellBound, but I've not managed to get it to Check Spelling As I Type... :(

    But on the upside: It supports a heck of lot more languages (must be installed seperately) than the native OS X spell checker, including my native Norwegian... :)

    My native language is french :)

    Ill give it a try but I would have liked like the OS x native spell check (its easier for me to post at my blog in decent english ;) )

    Actually, there's another advantage with SpellBound. It supports several variants of English, so if you, like me, prefer UK English over US English you can choose that.

    And you can decide language from textbox to textbox on the fly when you're spell checking... :)

    I think I can learn to love SpellBound... ;)

    I'm pretty good with spelling, but so many times 'Check as you type' in Safari has got me out of trouble. I would miss it a lot if it were to disappear!

    ditto, Just for that, Ill stay with safari I guess. My english aint good enough to post without it ;)

    The google rank toolbar was the reason I wanted to use Firefox but theirs a widget for that, I think ill use that instead.

    I believe Safari to be a superior browser anyway.
