Mozilla needs spelling

October 03, 2003

A few months ago I mentioned a handy browser form spell checker, ieSpell. Currently there is an open challenge at sourcesupport to create an application similar to ieSpell for Mozilla. Speaking personally, ieSpell is one main reasons why I still use IE at all. Having similar functionality on Mozilla would be great.

A working Mozilla spell-checker has been posted in the Mozillazine forums
by Torisugari.

Update: 2004.06.18

I've posted a note on how to get the spell check extension working in Firefox 0.9.

You're absolutely right. I sorely miss it now that I've switched to Firebird.

I've been bantering around the idea of trying to write something similar as an extension, but haven't had time.

Hopefully someone will beat me to it, otherwise I might have a Christmas holiday project. :)

It's now March 2004. I just switched to Mozilla 1.7. Have you heard of any replacement for ieSpell?
