Microsoft's decision to switch to Chromium as the source for the company's Edge browser has injected even more development resources into the project.

One of the latest commits by Microsoft engineers introduces support for the Windows Spellchecker in Chromium.

Any changes to the classic version of Microsoft Edge benefited that browser only previously. With Microsoft now focusing its energy on Chromium, any improvements made to Chromium benefit all other Chromium-based browsers as a consequence.

In other words: the Windows Spellchecker will be available as an option in the new Microsoft Edge, in Google Chrome, and in other Chromium-based browsers such as Vivaldi, Opera, or Brave provided that the companies behind these browsers don't block the flag in their browsers.

Google does not seem to have any objections to that as it is already possible to flip the default spellchecker of the Chrome browser to the Windows Spellchecker.

There is one caveat, however. Since we are talking about the spellchecker of the Windows operating system, the option to switch to it is only available on Windows.

Also, the feature is currently only available in development versions of some browsers, e.g. Chrome Canary, and not in stable versions (there is not even a stable Edge based on Chromium out there). The new option is not available in any Microsoft Edge versions right now.
