    In your case that would be true. But for me I think that the Edge has a far better spell checker than Chrome.
    If I'm only using english, it works very well.
    It would be nice, if all browsers had a user dictionary to add words to(optional of course, or available through an add-on).

    True.. but you still can add them as you go along with each correction. But, having the ability to add bulk words
    would be great, IMO.

    Andre, there's nowhere to set up spell check; only my Language.
    It is done automatically, more or less, when you add a new language: sometimes, you have to click on language (Options) to add typing an handwriting).

    Also I've noticed, that after upgrade I have to manually add basic typing. This one was done by Windows.

    You have an option to add word as you type, and also choose within limited suggestions.
    It is very basic IMHO.

    I do that when I need to.. It would be nicer if you can do that all at one time in a batch rather than one at a time.

    Jeff write this already and I've missed it. Sorry about that Jeff.
    And yes, it is very, very basic. You don't want to know, how clumsy it is to switch between languages.

    OK, so if I only have US English, and have added no other language, there's no way to change anything? Because I don't see it.
