Hi,

Yes there certainly is, Google Chrome has it's own spell checker. However, if you would like, you may install this particular Google Chrome extension from this link

For the built-in spell checker, follow the steps below in order to enable the spell checking:        

 1. Click on the Wrench icon found at the upper right hand corner of the browser.

 2. On the drop down menu, select Options. For Mac and Linux, it would be Preferences.

 3. Click Under the Hood at the right column.

 4. At the left pane, beside Web Content, click the Languages and spell-checker settings… button

 5. In the Languages and Input dialog that pops-up, choose a language you want to use (for English, select English (United States))

 6. Below, put a check mark on "Enable spell checking" in order to switch the spell-checker on or off.

If you would like to utilize the spell-checker and use a different language, pick the language that you would like to use from the list and click on Use this language for spell checking on the right. In case the language is not listed, press the Add button and choose from the drop down menu.

There is always a possibility where the language you add might not have a spell-checker dictionary offered. If that is so, then it will not have the ability to check your spelling in that particular language.

Adding a new word to the dictionary

In case the spell-checker continues underlining a word which you frequently use, right-click the word and choose Add to dictionary. Be careful in using this option because currently, it isn't possible to take away a word from the dictionary.

Temporarily turning off the spell-checker

You may temporarily turn off the spell-checker for the particular area you are typing directly into. To do that:

 1. Right-click the text area.

 2. Select Spell-checker options.

 3. Remove the check mark on Check the spelling of this field

If perhaps, on a regular basis, you operate using the internet in several different languages, you can actually switch between different language dictionaries while you type.

If you notice that the Spell checker seems to be not working
Try typing a word and make it a wrong spelling
Highlight it and check if it has a red wavy underline
If it does, then the spell checker is working

If still not, then try:
Highlight a word
Right click it
Select Spell-checker options
Make sure that there is a selected language
For example for English, choose English (United States)
Put a check mark on Check the spelling of this field

Another way is:
Uninstall Chrome
Navigate to:
C:Documents and SettingsUSERIDLocal SettingsApplication DataGoogle
Delete all the files inside that folder
Reinstall
Reboot your computer
Open Chrome and try if it works.

Unfortunately for Vista and Windows 7, there seems to be no fix yet. It is a lot more complicated for there OS's because of how their directories are arranged.

In the end, if you are still having a hard time with the spell-checker in Google Chrome, you are better off using Mozilla Firefox which has better options for spell checking.

Hope that helps.

Good luck!
