Windows 7: Spell Checker in IE9?

Spell Checker in IE9?

While using Firefox I discovered that it has a great auto spell check for all web forms (this forum, facebook etc)...when I use IE9 there is no auto spell check.

Is there something I should turn on to get spell check on IE9?

I already have google tools and spell check turned on but no spell check on web sites...

Also when I use Firefox the icon in the task bar only shows the windows that display first (does not show other web pages on other tabs), it does not show all web pages like IE....

The reason I am asking is if IE9 does not have spell check I would like to use Firefox more but as I keep many sites open its hard to get back to a site when the task bar only shows the top/ displayed web page and not the other tabs.

Thanks!

This is your best bet for a spell checker for IE9,

Speckie - spell check for IE

Works great on both 32 and 64 bit IE.

Another good add-on for IE is ieSpell - Spell Checker add-on for Internet Explorer (but many folks prefer Speckie).

surprised that Microsoft didn't have spell check built in by default as all the other major browser have them.
