Comparing Word Usage
Whenever I'm unsure of the preferred spelling for a particular word, I refer to Google Trends to compare the search volumes for the different spellings and find the one that is used by the majority. This helps remove any Australian / British English bias from my web pages and thus optimise optimize them for a global audience.
A recent comparison of supercede vs. supersede gave a surprising result:
