Implemented a spell-checker didn't we?

    That's what it looks like, here, psikology. See it did it, a red line went under the word. Look, this is even better: psychology. Wow, I typed in psi then chology and it automatically corrected the spelling for me.

    This is outstanding in my opinion and adds a nice level of sophistication to PF. Thank you.

    Hi jackmell,

    I'm afraid we can't take credit for this. Most likely you've just upgraded your web browser. New versions of FF/Chrome have a "form" spell check now :)

    Ok. Still, spell-checking is a very nice addition to the GUI of PF regardless of how or where it's implemented. It's just classy to write well.
