Typosaurus is a free online tool to check for spelling errors on a webpage(s). We often commit spelling mistakes of the silliest kind while writing something! While it’s OK, yet wrong, to make spelling errors or typos while making entries to your personal diary, it is quite embarrassing making such errors publicly if you happen to maintain a blog/website. Typosaurus is designed to terminate any typos in a webpage in just a matter of seconds! You can scan up to 100 URLs at a time, thus saving you precious time!
Typosaurus is really useful if you have a self-maintained website. It is even more helpful when you employ writers for your blog(s) or website(s). It gets hard for someone to check for semantic/syntax errors as well as typos. There is a high chance of overlooking one mistake or the other! But with this tool, you can leave the spelling to it while you can focus on other stuff. This will tremendously help you increase your productivity and it will definitely save you from any further humiliation.
