I was just wondering if there is an Add on for IE8.

Im a really bad speller, so i was wondering if there is an add on for IE8 that checks my spelling as i write, just like firefox and word.

Try this Mitch, ieSpell - Spell Checker add-on for Internet Explorer.
ieSpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage.

Hope this helps.

Mitch656,
There is a free Microsoft IE Spell check browser extension for IE8.
Let us know how it goes if you decide to install it.

The program installs as a new button in the IE toolbar (as well as a new menu item under "Tools") - after filling in a form, just hit the ieSpell button and it pops up a dialog, similar to the MS Word spell check.

Hope this helps.

Well i use Firefox, but feel like using IE but i dont know why

When i use Firefox, i could be writting a blog or something even writting in here, and as a i write, it automatically checks fore miss spelt words. i wouldent have to open anything. Its Like the way word does its spell checking aswell

Yep!

Sorry Mitch but I can't seem to find an "on the fly" checker for you. I'll keep looking and let you know if I come up with anything.

Doesn't IE7Pro (which also works on IE 8) have something like this?
