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.

You might want to look at ieSpell.
Also see this article

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, 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
