Google Chrome Spell Checker

By Sidharth | Ideas

Previously I wrote on how to make a IE Spell check addon with the Google toolbar that has freely available spell checker features. The same can be used as a workaround for Firefox browser. The same spell checker feature is available in Google chrome without the need to download Google Toolbar (also Google toolbar for Chrome isn’t released yet).

Enable Spell Check in Chrome

In my Google chrome browser, the Spell check feature was enabled by default (English spell check only). All you have to do is navigate to “Customize and Control Google Chrome” button where you’ll find “Options”, once you click on it – a dialog box pops up.

The best past is you can add other language spell check quickly with the “Add” button. Pretty easy!spell_check_chrome

You know it’s weird but Google Chrome spellchecker was enabled by default for me. Do you know why this it?
