Ever type a comment in a blog and know that you’ve misspelled a word (because you’re smart, or like me, because you’re using Firefox’s in-line spell checker)?  The problem is their spell checker sucks (or more to the point, I can’t get close enough for it to figure it out the correct suggestion).  But you don’t want to fire up MS Word just to figure out the correct spelling.  Enter Google to the rescue.  Just type the misspelling into Google, and it will likely suggest the correct spelling.  The only problem comes when it’s a misspelled word that everyone uses, because then it gets enough results that it doesn’t give you a suggestion.  In that case, I just leave it because I figure I’ve got good company.

Google as a spell checker works for me.
