EDIT: thanks for the reply! So, although this add-on is not a spell checker, it may be connected locally to one, a HUGE one, for that matter (about 180 MiB currently, plus some gibibytes/gigabytes, according to the developer). It's in Java, what means it could be downloaded for off-line use on different platforms (yes, I know Java is not as portable as advertised, but that's not the point...) I'm granting the five stars based on the on-line results, because my conscience won't let me use a spell checker that is bigger than all my text editors plus browsers plus pretty much every piece of software that can handle texts on my computer. I think it could be an amazing tool for publishers (although it would probably choke parsing texts like those by Philip K. Dick...)

Please read the documentation under "Offline use". You're free to install the server locally. It can't be part of the add-on, as it's about 170 MB in size plus a few GB data.
Unlike the Grammarly policy which indicates that they store everything you write...
- by Tanghe, 15 days agoRated 5 out of 5The addon with basic config is spyware that tracks everything you type.
However if you want personal pricacy and security you can simply run your own server and direct your trafic to the local server.
The process for setting up the server however should be made more eazy since allot of noobs care about privacy.
