Browser Spell Checker

 1:53 am on Jan 21, 2001 (gmt 0)

One issue that I've seen mentioned by many people who use forums, is that it would be nice to have a general purpose spell checker for their browser form boxes. There are several on the market, but none seem to work with very many applications.

After much searching, I have finally found one that is rather universal. It works with Opera, IE, Netscape, and Mozilla. All Purpose Spell Checker, is a freeware spell checker for edit boxes. It has two main options: "Find your message textbox", and "Send text back to message box". Click once to id the edit box you are working in, spellcheck it, and then send it back - no fuss. Did I mention it was freeware?

Great find Brett! I d/l'd a copy last night and using it today with NS, no muss, no fuss. Very handy!

It is the only one I know to work in NN, IE, and Opera (works in Opera's Email client that doesn't have it's own spell checker too).
