So is this some sort of crusade against AXE (Lynx, for those of you across the pond)? After all, they'd have you believe blasting yourself with stinky spray is the best way to get laid by everyone you know.

So I don't really use deodorant except when necessary, and while no one has said anything about me stinking, it really hasn't done anything to improve my prospects either. Strangely enough, whenever I do start getting sweaty, I almost always only sweat under ONE armpit. Is there something wrong with me, Doctor?

I wasn't making fun of you. And I'm Australian; I'm allowed to spell words correctly.

Why would you call a deodorant Axe?

Actually, I can't really say that; Lynx is probably very slightly more nonsensical.

Neither of them make sense to me.

It should have been called "Chick Magnet"

I do love it when people think they're being clever when actually they aren't.

Ah, but Firefox doesn't recognize "realise" as a word. Thus, you lose.

And I love it when people think that the implied subject of an implied sentence isn't ambiguous and it is.

Edit: I do realize you weren't making fun of me. I just have a weird sense of humor.

I didn't realize that I put "realize" into that sentence until I already had it half-typed.

Hey, I didn't rea... I'm not going to finish that word.

It was spelt "realise" before any English speaker ever walked on the Americas, and hence... you (and possibly Firefox) are wrong. Now... go... speak your American elsewhere. *spit*

:P

I'd imagine it's possible to switch the Firefox dictionary from American English to British English (and one would hope also Australian English and Canadian English and any other variants, if there are any spelling differences).

Yes, it would seem so. I upgraded to 2.0 just now, and the first thing it asked when I finished was if I wanted to install the British English language pack. When I clicked the link it took me to a page full of different languages that were available, including Australian English. So now, "realise" is not underlined and is therefore correct, while apparently "Firefox" is not correct. Suitable alternatives are "Fire fox" and "Firebox".

That's a pretty amusing oversight. I guess they're using a standard dictionary.
