    download third party spell checkers/plug-in for your browser. For Internet Exploder, iespell is very good, Firefox has a built in spell checker.

    Of course, it still won't catch the your/you're and their/they're/there...but that's the nature of the beast in chat rooms :)

    Cheers.

    You need a grammar checker for those ones!

    I guess I never realized Chrome had a built in spell checker until now. :)

    I have found the Firefox built in checker very good personally. Now if it did not have so many memory leaks (FF not the spell checker :))

    Add-ons aside, it would be a nice feature to include for those who do not have it built in.

    I'd pay for a checker that would correct the misuse of loose/lose.

    That might take a human checker! (Resisting temptation to reply with another bad spelling pun ...)

    I would settle for a little pop-up box whenever one of those was typed. "Did you mean 'lose'? Or 'loose'. If you don't know the difference, look up both definitions here (hyperlink).

    So someone typing "The nut was a bit loose causing the driver to pit and lose the race. The loser was relieved the nut wasn't any looser, which may have caused a serious accident." would get 2 (or 4) popups? Boo.

    So what's the answer to helping out those who aren't smarter than a 5th grader?

    I like the Chrome browser for the spellcheck, but I wish it would give me suggestions for misspelled words.

    On FT (using IE primarily but also Netscape on PCs), I tried to download the suggested spellchecker but I could never get it to work to me. It might have been an issue with the security settings determined by my network admin.

    I have a spelling checker

    Its very polished in its weigh,
    My checker tolled me sew.
    A checker is a blessing.
    It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
    It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
    And aides me when aye rime.
    Each frays comes posed up on my screen
    Eye trussed too bee a joule.
    The checker pours o'er every word
    To cheque sum spelling rule.
    Bee fore wee rote with checkers
    Hour spelling was inn deck line,
    Butt now when wee dew have a laps,
    Wee are not maid too wine.
    And now bee cause my spelling
    Is checked with such grate flare,
    There are know faults in awl this peace,
    Of nun eye am a wear.
    To rite with care is quite a feet
    Of witch won should be proud,
    And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
    Sew flaws are knot aloud.
    That's why eye brake in two averse
    Caws Eye dew want too please.
    Sow glad eye yam that aye did bye
    This soft wear four pea seas.
