I don’t know why I never noticed this before, but Safari has a built in spell checker. This come in extremely handy if you comment on a lot of blogs, or fill out a lot of online forms.
When I comment on blogs, I was spell checking the stupid way… I would write my comment in TextEdit, and then copy/paste into the comment form. Finding this just totally streamlined my commenting process. I don’t know why this option isn’t turned on by default.
tip: you must have your cursor in a text field on a page (or in the address field) to access the spelling menu items. If it’s not, those items are grayed out.

Firefox 2.0 does that by default. Unfortunately only for English.
Of course it has, the spell checking is system-wide…
Awesome, thanks for linking to this. :D
Yes, the spell check is system wide, but for some reason it’s not turned on by default in Safari.
Also, Paul, you typed “filed” instead of “field”.
Thanks Dale. Too bad Safari doesn’t have a word checker. It should just know what word I want. ;)
iigloo, my mistake!
