Browser Spell Check

Many browsers offer dynamic as-you-type spell check on any text you enter. In Firefox 2.0, misspellings are underlined in red, and right-clicking on them will pop-up suggestions. In Safari, dynamic spell checking can be activated by placing your cursor in any text field, then selecting Edit/Spelling/Check Spelling as You Type. Internet Explorer does not include its own spell check, but can be upgraded with the free IESpell or the low-cost JSpell Toolbar .
