Spellchecker Checked into Mozilla

Friday July 25th, 2003

Robert Accettura and Henrik Gemal both wrote in to tell us that the spellchecker from spellchecker.mozdev.org has been checked into Mozilla. However, it is not currently turned on. The spellchecker's epic journey into the Mozilla tree is charted in bug 56301.

"Now that mozilla.org is targeting endusers, they no longer had the primary excuse which kept this out for so long: 'end-user distributors can and do include spell checking code'."

That was never the primary reason why it took so long to get in. Just because an application is aimed at vendors and not end-users does not meant that it should be missing features. May as well say, "End-user distributions can provide their own page rendering code." The timing of the spellchecker being checked in and the launch of the Mozilla Foundation is purely coincidental.
