Win8 supports a new spell checking database. Investigate how good it is and consider connecting our spell checking up in place of our current dictionaries.

Do we want to be different only on windows 8 from other computers and devices that use Firefox in this regard?

This was more of a blue sky bug. I was wondering if on win8 for both metro and desktop we could hook this into our spell checking instead of hunspell. Might be an interesting experiment to see which is better. Not a high priority though.
