    Okay so I used edge I know it is one of the most villified browsers of all time for many reasons. Now that I am using Verizon only data, I realize how bloated it was compared to Chrome.

    I think they make you SUBSCRIBE to as in buy the dang EDGE browser from the app store now. I refuse to do that, especially since it was chewing through my data.

    Chrome is better but the spell check function is not supported. I am a horrific speller. Does anyone know if a) I can enable it on the site with Chrome or b) if there is a decent, reasonable, and upstanding browser other than Chrome I can install. I really don't trust just googling it. This sounds to me like a terrible idea.

    Yes I could ask the husband but he would not know and then would steal my computer and do infinity (possibly necessary but are they? If they've been fine for a year?) things to it.

    If anyone has a suggestion I would be grateful. LOL.

    Might like to read:
    How do I enable spell check in my browser? – Knowledge Base
    Then highlight any message and right click and misspelling and set spell check to "use basic spell check". You should see red under linings under misspelled words.
    I'm using Chromium which is an alternate Chrome based browser that works well with Linux.

    I've been using Firefox since the demise of Netscape. And the free Grammarly plugin, which seems to be satisfactory even if it is hyphen happy. They're just suggestions which you're free to disregard.
    Being a Google product, I have no interest in Chrome. Heck, I don't even use their search engine.
    Google is not your friend.

    Happy New year Anna,
    I use Firefox or Opera. Both seem to spell check well enough.

    I usually only type on a tablet anymore. Keyboards like SwiftKey suggest words to click on. Saves many keystrokes.
    Did you know Chrome has it's own Task manager? Might help save data.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. The Chrome extension works, but I will probably wind up using firefox. I like that browser well enough.
