Fireforx spell check

I've got both installed on my system now. They're basically the same now. I've gotten used to firefox, so that's what I use now.

But I have one question.
Does anyone know why firefox implemented spellcheck built-in rather than a addon? I mean, their 'talk-back' feature comes bundled with firefox and it's an addon. Was there some technical issue? To me, it just doesn't sit right that this it part of the browser.
