Anyone notice? If you see a squiggly red line under a word, the dictionary thinks it's misspelled. So, highlight the word, then right click (okay, so you have to be on a PC!), a small menu opens and the dictionary will give you some choices at the top. The very best is to view what you've posted and then you can immediately edit your own post.

Sorry, don't see the same ability using Internet Explorer.

FireFox works the same on a Mac. If underlined in RED, Right-Click or Option-Click. It is even trainable.

I just removed Firefox from both computers (WinXp).

It was slow and error prone.

This statement got my curiosity going. At the moment I'm on an older P4 runing Windows XP. I went to the same website on IE and FireFox attempting to see if there was any rendering difference. If there is, I can't detect it. We (IT and me) just did a lot of clean up and re-established my profile on this machine, so it should be pretty clean. That's not saying that there wasn't a problem for you, just that many times there's several thing contributing to apparent slowness and it may not be the application's fault. The older the machine, the more likely it's something other than the application causing a problem.

And I find just the opposite. IE crawls. I have the best of both worlds, FireFox + Dialup (at home)...no wise cracks now and IE + T1Backbone (here at work). FireFox hasn't given me any problems.... hope it's not Jinxed Morgan!

I left IE7 (da Elder Aunt with Lipstick) on my father-in-law's computer because he's on dial-up, and I didn't want him to deal with the upgrade and improvement downloads that Firefox frequently issues. Works just fine for his surfing. I have FF hidden and I use it to avoid the painful nature of IE.

For those wondering what this is all about, modern browser now all have Add-Ons, little programs to add functionality to the browser. IE has a handful (last time I looked) all created by Microsoft that don't do anything useful, while FF has 1,000s, here's a few of the 1 I use to make surfing life easier:

Auto-Copy
Select text and it's automatically copied to the clipboard.

GMail Notifier
Notifies you when you have mail in GMail

Google Browser Sync
Syncs Bookmarks/Favorites between my Laptop and my Desktop automatically

VideoDownloader
Download videos from YouTube, etc.

Tab Mix Plus
Makes tab browsing much more powerful

Colorful Tabs
Makes tabs colorful, bringing joy to the world!

But the Google toolbar has one built in, along with auto complete of forms and other goodies.

Yeah. Browsers are practically religion. I use a browser all day long at work for various work related tasks. I just switched from Opera which crashed on me about once a year to Firefox, which crashes on me about once a week. Sadly, there are lots of sites that are tuned for IE or FireFox so Opera has trouble competing; even though it's the most standards compliant browser... I'm all Mac based but sadly, Safari doesn't compete, except against IE.

It's all religion...

I'm a big Firefox fan. One big advantage I've found, for those of you who like to shop on Craig's List, is this site:

http://www.craigshelper.com/

This great little "helper" allows you to expand your Craig's List search to multiple areas/cities/states/countries. It did help me find our new Bigfoot. :-) Anyway, it works great on Firefox but does not work on IE.
