Much talk in the tech world has been of the release of IE 7 and Firefox 2.0. The two giants of the browser world just were updated and released in the past few weeks. I have IE7 on my home computer and will say that it is a great leap forward for the Mikeysoft crew. I could use it now if Firefox 2.0 didn't have such a cool new feature that really ain't new. What is this indispensable feature? Inline spell checking for forms. ALL bloggers will greatly appreciate this.
For instance, I currently use Movable Type with Ajaxify which gives me a WYSIWYG interface for my blog entries (with round trip into the HTML code for when I need/want that). Now with Firefox 2.0 I get inline spell checking in the entries by default, just from the browser. When misspelled words are recognized (real-time as you type), they are immediately underlined with the familiar red squiggle...If you right click on the underlined words, you will get a list of spelling suggestions in the pop-up menu.
This feature alone is such an aid to blogging that Firefox 2.0 is staying my default browser.
