When pressed allows you to scroll through the list of possible corrections for the word instead of right clicking or correcting.

I think that this might be baked for cellphones.

       Can it also be used in chatrooms, to hide other's typos so no arguments break out about them? (And I don't feel like a smarty pants as I correct them....)

       I really like the title... would wear it as a badge!

       What's an idiot button?

       And is there deodorant for it?

       So why wouldn't I right click on that squiggly line underneath my incorrectly spelled word in "Word"? Or are you saying this functionality should be incorporated into the "Cloud" and be app independent?

       4whom, I think that it would just be easier to have a key on the keyboard which would allow you to change the word quickly without having to use the mouse. A great advantage would be the app independence.

       Can you please move the closing quotation mark to before 'button'? Jeeez, I'm going to freak out.

       Thanks [daseva!] It was getting to me too.
