Make sure you open with Fire Fox to facilitate installation.

Google Tool Bar for Fire Fox
Internet Explorer users, see previous post.
and also available: The Google add on for IE http://toolbar.google.com/?promo=gdl-tb-en
I use Composer in Netscape, it has a spell checker, then I just cut and paste my post. You can also use Netscape email to do the same thing.
Try one. You can delete it if you don't like it. Plus, I'll give you your money back. 🙂 Both of these work right in the post reply box within the forum via a right click. No cut and paste required. You don't have to leave this website. Features a personal dictionary for your words. It's free.
The google toolbar for IE has a very good and quick spell check feature.
I don't have the google bar. Doesn't it add an item to the start up routine and consume resources by running in the background? If so, do you have to shut it down before flying Flight Simulator? Does the Google bar have a personal dictionary were you can enter your words that are correct but not in the standard dictionary(GPS)? The spell checkers I've found don't run in the background, don't add an entry to programs menus and don't add to the windows start up routine. They are invisible. Just right click from within the post area and then click spell check. Google bar sounds good as long as it doesn't slow your computer and does what you want it to. 🙂
I don't mean the google desk bar, just the one that is an add-in for IE. It is at http://toolbar.google.com/?promo=gdl-tb-en. There is also a firefox version.
Yes, it allows you to add words to your dictionary and can be used in Danish, German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portugese, Finnish and Swedish.
EDIT: Hmm, where did the post I replied to go? 😳
Sorry. I deleted it. I added your link to my original post. Good find. Now everyone has several choices for spell check. 😀
Somehow, I fear that those who need it most will use it least. 😞
Here's another good one I discovered yesterday. Don't know the meaning of a word but the dog has eaten the dictionary?
Hold down Alt (or Option on a Mac) and click on any word to get a quick definition, an up-to-the-minute reference and more. You don't even need to highlight the word!
The above Quick Description is an understatement of what this Extension is capable of. It's called Answers.
Good spell checker. FireFox 184.108.40.206 users need to read work around. 🙂
Spellbound 0.7.3 will only work in Fire Fox 220.127.116.11 with a tedious work around. An alternative would be the Google tool bar. 🙂
I didn't find Spell bound 0.7.3 tedious at all while running Firefox 1.5 - on the contrary, it was instant and extremely user-friendly.
The Google Toolbar for Firefox on the other hand is awkward and seems to retrieve it's data via the internet which of course slows it down. I also seem to have noticed a slowing down of the browser as such. Consequently I've uninstalled the Google Toolbar and my browser is back up to speed.
I might have --- refresh my memory
The following links have become obsolete for users of Firefox 18.104.22.168 ➡
No updates are available for those extensions at this stage.
I thought you were saying that Spell bound wouldn't work with Fire Fox 1.5. 😕
Firefox 1.5 was fine. The more recent version 22.214.171.124 (security issues) isn't compatible with the extensions in question and no updates are available yet. No problemo.
