    i find myself resorting to google to find out how a few tricky words are spelled. it gets the job done

    (this is assuming you're doing something that doesn't have a spell check built in, such as msn or something)

    EDIT: aww jeez. i did the poll wrong lol

    I do. I usually check with my virtual dictionary, first in Spanish, then in English. If it yields no results, I try Google, specially when I want to know how to use that word in a proper English context.

    I don't use it so much for spell check, but if i don't know how to spell it, Google is DEFINITELY my Dictionary. If a little red squiggly appears under ANYTHING i type, i double check in Google.

    Oddly enough, i learned that "Children's" isn't a proper term.

    (...reason being is that Wife┬« works at a children's center. A center for children [​IMG] No other reason, sickos. [​IMG])

    I never use spellcheckers. Obviously did when I was writing assignments for uni, but not since then. So yes, google is my dictionary. Or more specifically, dictionary.com.
