Where is my spellchecker?as if use of a spellchecker is essential to their blogging activities.
It's possible that including a spell checker in post editor isn't a good strategic move for Blogger, in the long term.
- Blogger / Google is international, and multi-lingual. Every different culture, and language, has its own unique spelling and grammar.
- Even with single languages, blogging subjects require an almost infinite combination of individually permitted (designated "good" spelling), and individually prohibited (designated "bad" spelling) phrases and words. Every different blogger is unique, and likely has unique requirements.
- Many browsers, and other third party products, include spell checking, that's configurable to the needs of the individual users (of which blogging would be a small part only).
So, instead of complaining about the lack of a spell checker, maybe we can start using third party solutions - at least, until Blogger develops an enhancement. Both Chrome and Firefox include a spell checker - and one which, to my eye, is more configurable than the Blogger spell checker. For Internet Explorer, a few bloggers use IESpell, which is, as many third party products, free for personal use.
An alternative possibility would be to return to using the old post editor. Hopefully, until the new post editor has been fully populated with features, the old post editor will continue to be available.
