![Firefox Spell Checker](http://www.mozilla.com/img/firefox/features/spellcheck.png)

So firefox 2 was released yesterday , and I've just been browsing through the features list. The fact that some of the google toolbar features have sneaked in as default functionality doesn't surprise me, for example the googlespell checker from the google plugin is an obvious feature for mozilla to include in the core.

What surprised me was how the anti phishing feature was just lifted:

This is an excellent example of open source, and it's really good to see google sharing their work , I just hope that anti customize google doesn't sneak in or worse still targeted adversting !

rgds,
