The Google Toolbar Spellchecker & Getting Spellchecking In Your Search Box

Yesterday, I
about what seemed to be a new feature Google was testing to put spell
checking into the search box. Nope, not a new experiment. It actually turns out
to be a function of the Google Toolbar. It happens if you type something into
any form, including a search box, and push the ABC/Check button. Google
Blogoscoped explains more
here. It
would be cool if it did work in the search box automatically, though — again,
time for Google Suggest
to be added to the main Google site, rather than a Google Toolbar
feature for
Firefox users.
