Why is there no spell checker in ie9

I like ie9 but i stopped using it because it has no spell checker. Is there a spell checker add on for ie9? Why wont Microsoft put a spell checker in ie9?

Tootal hi and welcome

Do not forget IE9 is still a beta. They (Microsoft) may or may not include a spell checker in the final release

You can use IE7Pro with IE9b, download from here:
Download IE7pro 2.5.1 Free - Tab Enhance, AD Blocker, IE faster, Proxy Switcher, Mouse Gesture - Softpedia
I've been using it only for spell checking.

I agree. Easy, small and it works here on the forums. That is how I found it.
