Chrome update brings improved spell checking to Windows, Linux and Chrome OS

Sarah Silbert

A new stable release of Chrome is out today, bringing improved spell-checking to Google's browser. Mountain View announced the update on the Chrome Blog, explaining that it refreshed the dictionaries for all supported languages -- and adding support for Albanian, Korean and Tamil. Additionally, the "Ask Google for suggestions" feature now includes grammar checking and context-sensitive spell-checking in English, so you can expect the search giant to set you straight on the difference between "affect" and "effect." If you've added custom words to your dictionary, you'll now be able to sync them across all your devices running Chrome. Look for the browser update to roll out to Windows, Linux and Chrome OS users in the coming weeks -- Mac support is still in the works.
