Windows 7: Anyone else finding Google Chrome has a pretty lousy spell check?

Anyone else finding Google Chrome has a pretty lousy spell check?

every so often, when I mistype a word (such as capitilzation ), it will not have any guesses as to what is the correct spelling for that word, even though the search automatically knows!

Even worse, it will mark common words (such as movie) as misspelled! WTBH?

Nope, I use Chrome's spellchecker, and it works fine, maybe try reinstalling Chrome to reset the dictionary file? Note that reinstalling will most likely erase your data, unless you use Chrome sync, which will store your Chrome data in the cloud.

Once I can give up Chrome's bookmark sync I'll look into that.

I'm kinda dissapointed Microsoft doesn't have a system-wide spell check yet. That was one of the few thins I missed about my Mac.

Also, chrome doesn't seem to like "dissapointed." Anyone confirm this?
