Some browsers, Google Chrome for instance, have a built-in spell checkers. Others, like Internet Explorer, don’t. Why on Earth would you need a spell checker in a browser? Let us count the ways:
Web support forms
Facebook wall posts
Letters to the editor – based on Web forms
Social Networking pages and posts
If you use Internet Explorer and you post on Web sites, social networking sites, use support forms, etc. then your misspellings will not be corrected. You may find it odd that we’re pointing this out, but do as we say, not as we do :-).
If you’re using Internet Explorer 9 and you like it, then you’ll be interested in Speckie – a spell-checker for Internet Explorer 9 (and IE 7 and IE 8 too). Speckie runs on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit. As far as we know, it’s the only spell-checker that works with Internet Explorer 9.
So if you use Internet Explorer 9 and you want to make a good impression, and you want all your site postings and Web form submissions to be free of spelling errors, you should take a look at Speckie.
Speckie is a free spell-checker for Internet Explorer 9. If you happen to be using IE7 or IE8 you can use Speckie too, if you like. It’s a 1.2MB download – and it’s free.
