For IE, try this.

If you need one for Outlook Express, use this. I use it. You don't need Outlook installed to get a spell check in OE this way.

Firefox 2 has a built in spell checker now. If the Mozilla Suite doesn't by now, try this.

A tip about Firefox's spellchecker:

The spellchecker only checks text areas.
Using about:config, you can make it check input fields (names, addresses, etc.), also.

Double click the blank space, in the Tab Bar, or right click a tab and select New Tab.
This will open a new, blank Tab.
In the Address Bar, type; about:config
Click Enter.
Scroll down to, and double click, layout.spellcheckDefault.
This will open the Enter integer value dialog box.
Change the value to 2.
Click the OK button.
Exit about:config.
Restart Firefox.

Integer Values:
1 - Spell-checking in Text Areas only (Default)
2 - Spell-checking in Text Areas and Input Fields

Thanks for the FF tip! Somewhere along the line I was already changed; possibly a leftover from SpellBound before spellchecker became integrated into FF. But it's good to know for future reference. I'll keep it in my tips folder.
