    I found THIS in the new Freeware book.
    It is a tray based spell-checker that works in most all web based forms.
    It even works in AIM, although I had trouble with MS Messenger.

    Unlike other spell-checkers, it checks as you type, when you hear a tone, click the tray icon for a correct spelling.

    No spy-ware, and it has a uninstall feature, highly configurable ...check it out...Rhett

    Hello Rhettman,

    Sounds really good. Will download it now and try it. I have Mozilla and Opera, so will see if it works with them.

    Bye,
    Penny.

    Spell check in instant massaging IS kind of silly what with all the slang used, however it just sounds a tone , it doesn't force you to change anything, and a right click on the Icon and you can turn it off.

    I also found it handy in that it has a spelling window you can open, if you're not sure of a words spelling, just type it in and it will give you the correct options...must faster than a dictionary... Rhett :)

    I noticed a BIG drain on my resources this AM, I was running at 21% and as the spell check was all I had downloaded, I uninstalled it...resources jumped to 77%...keep an eye on it, you can uninstall it from add remove programs...may have jumped the gun on recomending this...Rhett

    It might not work for some of the apps mentioned, but I find that Google is a great spellchecker. Do a search for the word you're looking for and see if it corrects you.

    I've been useing tinyspell for a few months now.. All you do is type a word. If your not sure about it, highlight the word and copy it. Then right click on the icon in the tray if t's yellow, a list pops up allowing you to select the word you want to use, it even replaces the word for you. I have found it to not increase the drain on the CPU at any noticeable level, and it seems to work in every application I have tried it in.. It's really a great tip,, Please everybody, try it out, if you don't like it delete it, but do try it out..

    Google Labs has a very neat and very powerful DICTIONARY, that is not advertised!

    They even call it a "glossary" rather than an online dictionary!:p

    I hate to yak away but also do lookup VisualThesaurus >> words don't do it justice!

    I have been using iespell and find it works well with any web-page based forms. Accessibly through tools.

    Is there anything like IEspell for Mozilla?

    Ideally I'd like something that works like the Word spell engine that underlines misspelled words while typing in forms or writing code.

    Too bad it runs on startup and sits in the system tray though.

    A spell checker for Mozilla can be added to the Composer and Mail message composer only. You can get it here if you want it.
