Spell and Grammar Check Bookmarklet
Today I’d like to present a new toy for you–the AtD Bookmarklet. With it, you can click “Add Proofreader” from your bookmark bar and an AtD button will magically appear above every text area on the current page. You now have the ability to check spelling, grammar, and misused words from your browser.
You can get it here. What can you do with this new bookmarklet?
1. Look smart when posting to Hacker News
2. Check your tweets before they go out
3. Avoid an embarrassing mistake on your LinkedIn profile
4. Spell check your comments–on any blog!
Chrome Update – I’ve received several reports (and have verified) that this bookmarklet does not work in Google Chrome. The AtD libraries work with Chrome and everything is happy when requests are to and from the same host. When I find a fix, I’ll post something here.
Chrome Update 2 – After investigating with Google Chrome, I believe this bookmarklet communicates in a way that conflicts with Chrome’s pop-up blocker or browser security policy.
