There were several instances of embarrassing English in the article. As well as "Engineeer" we also had the quite spectacular "equvelent expericance". They've been corrected now.

It was so bad originally I decided it wasn't worth posting as someone else would point it out or you'd spot it, but apparently everyone else thought the same thing.

As someone else posted already, there's two instances of "administration" spelled incorrectly. Also, the last line "If you interest in" should be "If you're interested...". The sentence construction in the paragraph isn't good either, but maybe that's just a US-English thing.

This question is off the thread discussion but I keep expecting to download a nightly of Firefox and open the options and under advanced see a checkbox for load Firefox at startup? Is this a 1.0 feature?

Are you trying to do this in Windows? The standard way to start ANY Windows Application at startup time, is to put a shortcut to the executable in the Stratup folder in the Start Menu. Why some applications chose to have this as an option from the GUI that creates registry entries to make it happen is beyond me. Just makes it harder for the average user to figure out how to get them NOT to start if that is what is desired.

which will open the browser window in your face every time you start windows. I don't think that's what the writer wanted, but rather, have an icon in the system tray like Seamonky, that will load the browser quicker when needed.

There never has been and never will be such a feature in Firefox. I think the devs made that painfully clear, the main reason being that Firefox loads up quickly enough as to render such a feature pointless.

Well, technically there was once such a feature: Turbo Start. It was mostly a remnant of Seamonkey, though, and while it worked for a short time, when it broke the bug to fix was WONTFIX'd.

Mmm... the misspellings aren't even consistent! Corrected.

I remember being told in school to always make sure that misspellings were consistent. If you spelt a word incorrectly the same way in several places, they could only deduct one mark. However, if you spelt a word incorrectly in different ways in different places, they could deduct a mark for each variation.

Let's say "just like in Konqueror" ;). It isn't good for health to use MS programs like good examples xD.

Now seriously, it would be a nice thing to implement, taking into account that other browser already supports that function.

what about grammar & syntax checking, as well as just spelling? "he did it good --> he did it well"... not just "this vacuum sux ---> this vacuum sucks"
