    the subject pretty much says it all..I love this browser, but I find I have to have ms word open pretty much all the time to spell check stuff. Is there a plugin or extension or something that will do this? (like the google toolbar for IE or FF)

    Most people just don't understand just how AWSOME opera really is.


    Firefox is a piece of fucking shit by comparison.

    I much prefer Firefox built-in spell check. Firefox highlights the incorrect spelled word automatically. All you need to do is right click the word and select what you want. No need to run a completely separate spell check :hsugh:.

    um wait a minute, the opera spell check is not built in. you have to download a separate program and a language pack.

    but still, opera > *.

    I tried it recently, and I don't know why but it didnt' bother asking me if I wanted to import my favorites. It just did it on it's own.

    And then when I tried to delete them, it would let me delete all the folders in the drop down window, but not the seperate ones. Odd.

    We all KNOW that Firefox's spell check is much more convenient than Opera's. It's plain as day.

    But we are wasting our time if we anticipate that a one Opera fanboy will so much as acknowledge this.

    I recommend using Aspell. It checks in real-time
