Since Google Chrome team has promised to release a new version of Chrome browser every 6 weeks, they have never looked back, and here’s one more update to the fast growing web browser. Google Chrome 19 lands in the Dev version and it’s available for the early testing phase with developers and Chrome lovers. The Dev channel has been updated to 19.0.1036.7 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame.
Google Chrome 19 brings a new Spellchecker that will show spelling suggestions for misspelled words powered by Google itself. However, it is not mentioned that how the new spellchecker is different than the browser’s current spellchecker. This build contains following updates :
- Updated V8 – 18.104.22.168
- Fix: open incognito windows at exit created extra normal windows when the session was restored
- Show spelling suggestions for misspelled words from the online spellchecker provided by Google (only after users opt into sending text to the service)
- Fix a visual artifact when UI bubbles fade
- Fix 3D acceleration on computers with NVIDIA Optimus graphics
- Use Google’s online spellchecker to identify misspelled words as well as provide suggestions, for pasted text only
- Fixed a crash that could occur if a page was closed while playing audio and more here.
