    spelchek - it's in the browser

    Unfortunately, the people who really need to read this will probably not do so.

    If you are using Firefox or Chrome as your primary Bullshido-browsing utility, you will notice that, automagically, misspelled words in text entry fields are red-squiggly-underlined. All you have to to is right-click on the word for suggested correct spellings, and choose your preferred correction. The correction will be applied when you select one from the list. You don't even have to type it!

    That's right, you don't even have to switch tabs over to Google or (gasp) crack open a dictionary: correct spellings for common English words are literally a click away.

    Here are screen shots of those browsers in action:

    For you IE fans, there's Speckie, which is an add-on that does pretty much the same thing.

    It is sad that these tools cannot (yet) correct belief in the chun or aikido as effective arts, but at least they can save us literate Bullies from making some of the more frequent typos.
    Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.

      I dunno about fans- there are still those of us who are required to use it for work.

        During the last census, six people in the USA answered yes to that question.


        I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

          The company who designed and maintain the website I work for insist on IE for everything. Their back-end system won't run on any other browsers.

          Going to visit their head office is quite terrifying, they have Microsoft awards all over the walls.

            Sounds like someone is getting a kickback to me.
