New dictionary Onebox from Google

When I say "new" I mean; new to me.

I used to use Google for spell-checking a lot. It did two things great;
  1. Suggested the right spelling for my poor attempt
  2. Linked to or in the top right
Google's been monkeying around with those top right links for a while. took a traffic splat when Google removed the link.

When it comes to the spell checking; Google seems to try too hard to work out what could be matched with my typo. It's not always so easy to get the right spelling back.

I noticed this today; a dictionary entry as an onebox. Clearly a lot of people do the same "spell check search".
