I got to say I wouldn't bother going to some site to check every post I make myself...
But Firefox spellchecker works great :D.
(But not perfect :P it happens I know better or some other dictionary knows better ("spellchecker" is marked in red and so is "Firefox" :P). And Grammar isn't checked :(.)

Both "Spellchecker" and "Firefox" are not actual words. "Spellchecker" has been (Sorta) accepted since MSWord coined the term but it's just that - A term to describe a type of program that performs a spelling correction function. "FireFox" is also a brand name, just like "Cola" or "Microsoft". Your spellchecker should Okay both of those, btw. Not because they're accepted as words, but because they're brands that are familiar to just about every person on the planet.

Also, mechanic grammar-checking is hilarious. Unless something changed significantly, Word still can't handle complex sentences.

This city is afraid of me.

I have seen its true face.

The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown.

The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down and whisper

"Maybe after a Hot Pocket."

Just because you're ignorant of the language that you use, doesn't mean everyone else have to be.
