For the 47 percent or so of you guys who come here via Firefox, take five minutes to upgrade to Firefox 2.0. Most of the improvements fly under my radar but the built-in spellchecker has the potential to seriously upgrade my web browsing experience. It seems to work like MS Word minus the grammar tool, underlining offending words but sadly leaving homonyms and tortured syntax intact. No doubt that will show up as a module any day now.
Maybe this doesn’t bother most people, but for a borderline pedant like me a minor error can derail the thread of an otherwise insightful comment or post. There is even a neurobiological basis for that, which will form part of a much larger series of posts that I will put up whenever I get around to finishing them.
Consider this a public service announcement. Chat about whatever.
