#7572 closed feature request (invalid)

Use spellcheck to offer search alternatives for misspellings

I'd love to see the built-in search functionality expanded a little. Specifically to handle misspellings. It seems like we could use Google spell check to fix spelling in searches? If you google for "tsest" it asks if you mean "test" and the spell check offers the same as a replacement.
