Sorry for reopening a dead post, but this still isn't fixed and it's still the only gripe I have with using duckduckgo.

From the discussion that developed in this thread, it seems that there is still a lot of unclarity about what I exactly mean by spelling correction.

I'm talking about something that has nothing to do with the duckduckgo search results. I'm talking about the UX of the search input bar before I press enter.

It is really annoying that this input field has spell checking turned on because the query I'm typing will likely not have 100% correct spelling.

This would fix that:
<input type="text" spellcheck="false" />
