Spell checking and Chrome

For any of you who is a native English speaker, it can be useful to use this forum with Google's Chrome as your browser.
Since I'm using Chrome 2.0 as my standard web browser, I've noticed that all my posts are spell checked by Chrome. It is one of the standard options of the browser.
Unfortunately my browser is default checking with the Dutch spell checker and an auto language detect is unavailable.
However, since most people writing on this forum seem to be native English (or a close derivate), this may be a good option.

Cheers, Bert

All browsers and systems can be configured to use a spell checker. For Internet Expolrer users, check out ieSpell - Spell Checker add-on for Internet Explorer. If you have that plugin installed, you can use the "check spelling" icon in the upper-right of the quick editor to quickly check your spelling.

I still maintain that IE has the best rendering of all the browsers, and I sincerely hope that all the gimmicks planned for IE8 won't further clutter up my screen, like the additions in IE7 did. So there's my 2 cents

Chrome has a few things in favour over IE:

- Compared to IE it is VERY fast and light weigth.
- No need for tool bars and many plug-ins build in, everything works from the address bar.
- Less users, thus less attractive for virus and worm makers.
- It is not Microsoft, feels like not chosing N**** or C****.

Cheers,

Or you can use Opera and get all the things you like about Chrome from the company that invented most of them

Not to turn this into a browser flame war or something but I couldn't resist.

I tried chrome. Not bad, but it still renders some things quite a bit differently than IE/FF. For now I'll stick to that combo.

Firefox has spell checking built in, love the feature checking it as I go, then again when I use IE6 that does too. Running XP w/SP2 so I can only assume it's in the browser.
