In recent years, Firefox has become increasingly bloated and less stable, so a few months ago I switched to Google Chrome. All in all, I am quite satisfied with the performance of Chrome and I use it every day. I love the built in sync capability that keeps everything synced between my desktop, laptop, and iPad. (you can check out the iPad version of Chrome here)
Recently, a bug was introduced into Chrome. The built-in spellchecker stopped working. For this ham-handed, number fingered, types with two fingers, old man, not having a spellchecker is a real problem and leads to some embarrassing blog comments.
I recently found a fix for this problem and I thought I would share it with you.
Go to a website page that has a form and right click on the form space.
You should see:
Click on Spell-checker options. You should see:
If there is a checkmark where it says, Ask Google for suggestions, remove the checkmark and restart Chrome.
That’s it…the spellchecker should be functional once again.
If you update Chrome you will have to go through this procedure again. Hopefully, Google will fix this nagging problem soon.
