Windows 7: Google Chrome takes spell checking into the cloud

Google Chrome takes spell checking into the cloud

Quote:
It's that time in Chrome's six-weekly release cycle where another stable version is pushed out the door. Leading the feature list this time is an addition entitled "Ask Google for suggestions".

This feature sends the text that a user types to Google's servers for context-sensitive spell checking, homonym suggesting, and grammar checking.

Also added in this Chrome release is a feature that synchronises the custom words added to dictionaries between different devices using Chrome.

These changes are available on Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS — Mac support is still being worked on.

Pretty good feature. The inbuilt spell checker is too bad. Lacks lots of words, need to add something new everyday.

Mac support is still being worked on..... They probably have to send it to Apple first to see how many patents it breaks

inb4 privacy concerns with regards to sending text to Google.

As for me, doesn't affect me in the slightest since I don't use spell checking. If I want to check my spelling I will consult a dictionary.
