Google just recently announced that it rolled out Chrome version 26 to the Stable channel. The search engine giant explained that Chrome 26 comes with lots of improvements to the spell checking function.

As you may already know, Mountain View-based search engine giant Google rolls out Chrome versions on the Canary, Dev, Beta, and Stable channel. The news we have to report today is that Google rolled out Chrome version 26 on the Stable channel. If you’re already using Chrome, the browser should update itself automatically. If it hasn’t, trigger a manual update from the About menu, or go get the latest Chrome release!

The main improvement Chrome 26 brings to the table is an enhanced spell checking tool. Or to put it in other words, the “Ask Google for Suggestions” feature has been significantly improved. Software Engineer Rachel Petterson explains:

“We’ve refreshed the dictionaries for all languages, and users who speak Korean, Tamil, or Albanian will appreciate that we’ve added support for those languages, too. In addition, users who add custom words to the dictionary can now sync their settings to bring those changes to all the devices where they use Chrome. The ‘Ask Google for suggestions’ spell checking feature, powered by the same technologies used by Google search, now supports grammar checking, proper nouns, homonyms, and context-sensitive spell checking in English.”



Rachel Petterson went on to explain that Windows, Linux and Chrome OS users will get these enhancements in the coming weeks. Mac users will have to wait a bit because Google is still working on supporting this platform.

Chrome 26 also comes with these other new features:
  • Desktop shortcuts for multiple user profiles on Windows.
  • Asynchronous DNS resolver on Mac and Linux.
  • Bug and security fixes.

You can get Chrome 26 for Windows right here on FindMySoft.
