For IE, go here. I'm quite happy with it.

For Firefox and the Mozilla Suite, go here:

And here is the most powerful collection of dictionaries I've found:

Another option for Windows users is a commercial product called Spell Magic (http://www.alcodasoftware.com/spell-magic.htm). It installs in Windows (not the browsers), but it can spell check in every browser I use. I like it because it does a good job checking, it can correct double words, and it's configurable. It also works better than any other universal spell checker I've tried.

I actually bought Word Spring (http://www.alcodasoftware.com/word-spring.htm), which is Spell Magic plus a definition feature and thesaurus. But I never use the extra features because I don't like the way they work.

Thanks, Andrew! Lord knows I need all the speel-chuckers I can get!If you try it out, let me know what you think. It is the only universal spell checker I've tried that hasn't turned out to be a clumsy disappointment. You can even use it to spell check the title area of a post.
