so i have the auto spell checker turned on in safari and it is great at telling me when i have spelled something wrong, by underlining it with a red line. however, how the heck do i see what the correction options are? i was ok with the trial and error method until i hit the word 'conscientious' today and just couldn't spell it right. sigh, i ended up googling it - there's an easier way, right?

Secondary click (aka right click) on the word.

If your on a MacBook(pro) with out a mouse: Then hold ctrl and then click

If you have a unibody laptop then the trackpad has a built in two button right-click feature. You can either do a two finger click or turn on the right-click feature in system preferences to divide the lower half of the trackpad into a left and right click like on a traditional Windows laptop. I prefer doing it the second way because my muscle memory is just so used to right-clicking in that general location.
