Do you think your spelling accuracy has increased since Firefox 2.0?

I personally see myself making less spelling mistakes. Since it is in-line usage it makes it easier and quicker to catch mistakes.

What do you think?

No, I use Opera and Fass. My machine will never see the likes of Firefox, ever again.

I think it helps and catches stuff that could just be a wrong key that you pressed and catches it before you post :thumbsup:

I have found it catches typos; but I learned to spell before I left high school, so I really don't notice the improvement in my posts.
Cheers,

I'm a decent speller but definitely not 100%, so it's very handy for me when it catches my flub-ups.

I've been using it since before it got integrated in 2.0 using the spellbound plugin. <3

Ya, I think it's a good tool.
Haven't used the spell checker in the post section of this forum since upgrading to 2.0. :thumbsup:

I turned off the spell checker. Its kind of annoying, and besides, if I can't catch my own spelling mistakes at this point in my life, then it's my own darn fault! :thumbsup:

I haven't really noticed difference in my spelling, as I am a pretty good speller. I type fast and don't look at the keyboard so it only helps me to see my mis-spellings faster if I am typing in a hurry. Or when I'm on one of those "dumb" days when simple words look weird to me and I can't spell them, lol. Anyone ever have that happen to them? :thumbsup:

On one of the games, I posted 'Piece' but it looked totally weird, so I spent about two minutes deciding between 'peice' & 'piece'. It still looks weird to me, but the red underline didn't come on when I put 'piece' so I just stuck with that. :thumbsup:
