Edge Canary to include Windows spellchecker

Edge Canary is getting a lot of new features lately. Microsoft is finally using user feedback to improve their Chromium-based browser and make it as user friendly as possible.

Windows spellchecker makes its way into Edge

The idea was first brought into attention over a month ago and shortly after, the flag to enable it appeared in Chrome Canary.

Now, the same flag appeared in Edge Canary as well, signalling that the implementation in Chrome was a success and the feature is ready for Edge.

Users now have the option to choose between Windows OS spellchecker or Hunspell spellchecker in Edge Canary’s settings.
