Issue 111593: Spellcheck should be able to run asynchronously

Reported by, Jan 27 2012 Project Member

Issue description

(copied from <>.)

Once spellchecking has a unified text checking emulation by  Bug 65849 , 
we can use SpellChecker::requestCheckingFor() to run all spellchecking async. This will improve responsiveness of key typing.

Two webkit bugs relevant to this :  : a patch pending review. We may ping some people to get this reviewed?

shinyak already has a patch in the webkit bug. So, assigning this to him makes sense.

The following revision refers to this bug:

r133029 | | Thu Apr 19 11:58:23 PDT 2012

Changed paths:

This patch implements asynchronous spellchecker on Windows and Linux.

Though Mac already has its own spellchecker, Linux and Windows don't have one. So we have implemented asynchronous spellchecker posting a task.

M20 has sailed. If this need to be part of M20, please put the Mstone-20 label back along with release block tag.

I've noticed that you deleted the following comment of yours. Did you
delete it because you don't have this issue any more? Or, is there another
reason?  Of course, I'd be happy if you don't have an issue any more :-)

Should this bug still be open? (Cleaning up the Feature-Spellcheck bugbase while we transfer ownership)
