The easiest way to spell check a web page.

Every time I create a new landing page or even a blog post in some cases, I’ve always struggled to find a simple way to spell check my work which is a big deal given how many typos I end up with these days.

Then the other day I was talking shop with a coworker about designMode when he said:

“What a second…it’s not just making things editable, it’s highlighting errors.”

Sure enough. When I turned it on for Hemlock after making a quick change to the subheader this morning, there was a red squiggly line.


In Chrome, all you have to do is paste the follow code into the browser console:
document.designMode = “on”;

Or, based on that same friend’s suggestion, add this code to the URL field of a new bookmark to make it even easier to turn on:
javascript:document.designMode=’on’; void 0

No more Google-ing “web page spell checker” or pasting the entire text into Google doc. Design mode was already cool, this only made it moreso.

Hi, I'm Gregg.

I'm a SaaS marketer and maker.


Never heard of me? All good, these days I don't chase influence as much as I do balance. By day I run marketing for Inntopia and evenings see me building SendView, but my happy place is playing in the mountains with my family.
