I hate right clicking misspelt words in text boxes within browsers to correct spelling.

Wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut to replace the misspelt word with the best match when the cursor is in/before/after the word?

Alternatively is there are browser plugin or could I set up keybindings to do this?

As far as chrome is consider there are no keyboard shortcut for spell check. Alternatively,There's an extension in the Chrome store called Ginger that does spell checking. When a word is spelled wrong it will be highlighted in blue. All you do is hover over the word and the word it thinks you meant will appear above it, just click the word and continue on.
