I just switched to from Chrome to IE9, but there is no built-in spell-checker in IE9...

This is a realy pitty. Is there someone out there that know an addon that works for that?

    I have to agree that real-time spell check is important. In fact, it's the only think keeping me tied to Safari. I just can't believe that Microsoft doesn't see this as an important feature. Shame. I'll take a look at this program at speckie.com. I'm willing to pay for it, but not much given that I already have it in Safari. I'm not willing to pay $20 to use IE 9. – user72630 Mar 20 '11 at 18:05

You might also want consider switching back to Chrome :-)

  • The idea here is to use IE for 30 days trial and see if I survive this :) If not, back to Chrome... – Philippe Mar 8 '11 at 12:23
  • Humm, it's not as you type, is it? – Philippe Mar 8 '11 at 12:30
  • @Philippe: nope. thats why the back to chrome option ;-) – Nivas Mar 8 '11 at 13:17
  • @Nivas: oh my god, this is such a show stopper... I can't believe this! – Philippe Mar 8 '11 at 13:20
  • @Philippe, if your "trial" is still on, you might want to try this: speckie.com/home Looks like what you wanted, a "real time spell checker for IE". – Nivas – Nivas Mar 16 '11 at 3:38

speckie - it works with IE9, I've been really happy with it.
