      Anyone have the spell checker turned on, on the browser they use?

      I am currently now using Firefox and I have the spell checker turned on, it's great for checking but I really wish it wouldn't tell me I am wrong when I type in English spelling not American English :lol: tonight alone I have been told by the spell checker I spelt realise wrong and centre wrong as with me using it to check American English spelling it expects me to spell them center and realize.

      I use the spell checker to catch my spelling mistakes. Unfortunately, it makes my computer freeze up every time I make a mistake. Well guess it would be my browser that is freezing. But, it's frozen none the same.

      Yes i have been using that feature of Firefox ever since. I really need the spelling checker on cause my keyboard letters were a bit hard to press and so there are letters usually not written or missing in my sentences. Great that i could checked easily which one is misspelled.

      I have spell checker turned on. I often pull up my browser so that I can check the spellings of words. I've always been horrible at spelling so I love the spell checher option.

      I use the built in spell checker on Chrome and have the option changed to English (UK). Even on the correct language setting it's not perfect, but at least I can write "centre" without it going nuts :p

      Yep! It came with my FireFox download, so why disable it?
      If it wasn't per-installed, I would have never downloaded it...

      Not 100% sure if it was pre-installed, but I can't remember installing it myself, haha.

      All the time! I hate making mistakes and as such, the spell-checker is my saviour in these hard grammatical times. :(

      Yes; Safari has a spell checker on it as well and I love it. :)

      It's exactly like the spell checker on the iPhone. I have an iMac and I love it almost as much as Safari! :p

      I use the spellchecker on firefox, I love having a spell checker in my browser as I am not the best speller. The only problem I face with it though, is that I am English UK, not American. I often in real life spell works wrongly, like "color"

      I use spell checker, I don't like it when I spell something incorrectly.

      I didn't even know there was another way to spell Realize and I didn't know Centre was considered a word. XD
      I only knew of Colour, Maths and Favourite which all drive me nuts when I see them. :lol:

      there is no way I could be on the internet without a spell checker. You would not be able to read my posts.
