Built-in Spell-Check?

Post by Tracer »

I am one of those guys who cant spell "for" squat :-D

edit * "for" squat. Does that make it sound better? I am part of the spell check generation, we cannot survive without spell check and a calculater! :-D

I'm pretty sure that is how you spell "squat."

The Mozilla Firefox browser, in addition to being a far more superior browser than Internet Explorer actually has a built in spell checker. When typing a post, anytime I misspell a word, it's underlined and if I right click on it, it gives me suggestions based on a dictionary.

You can get it free at getfirefox.com

Just to be clear, this is not meant as an advertisement, just a simple free solution to the problem presented in this thread
Trains aren't dangerous, it's lack of common sense that's dangerous.

Ditto what RedLantern said. Firefox is excellent, the built-in spell checker is very helpful.
