HELP! As some may have noticed, calling me Mr. Typo wouldn't be a bad nickname at times. So I come with a problem and it's one I'm about screaming
at my monitor over at this point.
For various reasons, I'm still using Winblows on this box and among my browsing options for what I have to be doing, Chrome. (sigh) ..I know.... Two
of the scumbag options ..but as I said, factors don't leave me a choice on this box at the moment.
What my problem is, is this. WHERE and HOW do I get a FUNCTIONAL dictionary/spell check program that will work through chrome? Their standard one is
so far beyond worthless, I'd turn the damn thing off entirely if it didn't catch a few words I honestly DON'T know spelling on, automatically. A
couple of the long state names, for an example.
However, this piece of junk literally misses MORE than it ever picks up and it's idea of correction is flat wrong to word and context as often as
not. When I used FireFox it worked beautifully. Unfortunately Firefox eats memory like a pig in slop and will swamp out my machine quick with the
nature of what I'm normally doing. So, it isn't an option for me.
I just want a spell check that actually CHECKS SPELLING on more than a 'Oh, when I kinda feel like it' basis.
* For some context... I learned typing by teaching myself about a thousand years ago..lol.. that was an evolved form of hunt/peck that literally
evolved into chat room typing speed near verbal/spoken word speed. It's great at school to leave other students looking baffled at the near unbroken
clickclicklcicklick in an long blur of keys ....but I'm glad no one ever asks too much about accuracy while doing it. (embarrassed smile)
