Some browsers automatically translate Webpages whose creators did not have the common sense to write them in English in the first place.

Howevertheless, there is scope for more. Why not a browser which will fix, on the fly, errors such as lack of capitalisation, poor punctuation, grammar errors or clear mis-spellings?

       Wonder if its first job will be to correct Grammer to Grammar? ha

       "Grammer" would be a spelling error, but I'm pretty sure that "grammering" is a verb. Actually, why is "verb" a noun?

       Why is a compound noun (bus driver, English teacher) itself a compound noun? Truly the English language is a kludged-together effort.

       "Glucose" is the name of a compound, but is not a compound noun.
