    ive been using it for nearlly 4 months constantly and its the best browser ive ever used in my opinion. Beats ie8 hands down! Still use FF occasionally for some of the addons ive got installed.

    As does Firefox. Although it is American unless you download the "UK English" (ugh, how I hate that phrase!) version, not sure if you'd count that as a plug-in...

    I use FF and use the speel chunker all the time. The only problem is that it seems to revert to "foreign" spelling on a whim. I've not worked out why yet...

    o i have a look into these, i thought there was a spell check web based, no switching browser required, and no plug in required too could be mistaken

    I have thought about this in the past but the fears of the load on the server have kept me back from doing it. I will see what other options there are now.

    After I first upgraded to the latest firefox I thought it was a feature of edugeek rather than firefox that was pointing out my bad spelling. Took me a while to realise it was happening on other sites too ;p

    yeh, we ended up buying it as the teachers were moaning that they couldnt spell check the reports they were writing. They are meant to be TEACHERS.
