Amazing New Google Docs Spellcheck

If you have not worked in Google Docs in the last few days you owe it to yourself to open up a new Doc and start typing.  Misspell a few words while you're at it and you'll be amazed by what you see.  Rather than the traditional list of suggested words you just get one Did you mean: suggestion.

Google is now using context as well as old fashioned spelling to determine the word you need.  The technology behind this is incredible.  I heard one Googler say, "The reason we can offer you one word is because we know we'll always be right!"

If you want to know more you can read the Google Docs Blog or Lifehacker, but really you just have to try it out.  It really is a triumph.

That's great, but I really don't know how this is gonna turn out to be, Meanwhile I am hoping for some new tools to have such a feature. CollateBox is one such tool, It says better than Google docs so have to watch out for this.
