    Question Google Chrome 12 in Canada forcing UK spelling

    Is it only in Canada, or has anyone else been spell checked only to find the alternatives list to be uniquely British in flavour?

    Well, let's check now, using Big G's toolbar ... flavor ... "no spelling errors were identified."

    Change my location to Canada ... WTF?

    You can only specify a location within the country of your current Google domain.

    The customization of search results based on location is an important component of a consistent, high-quality search experience. Therefore, we haven't provided a way to turn off location customization, although we've made it easy for you to set your own location or to customize using a general location as broad as the country that matches your local domain.

    Oui, mon frere, ze spellING eese, how you say, deplor-abel. Mon deau.

    weegillis, I'll keep my eyes open but I hadn't noticed.
    deepsand, I guess if half the rednecks here in Alberta think we are a state in the U.S., I don't mind it if you call Pennsylvania a province. Must warn, though, our language is very colourful.

    Thrills, Mike

    Maar natuurlijk doen we nederlanders
    maar misschien niet de Pennsylvania soort

    BTW, I have Chrome version 14.0.385.5 which can be dangerous in the wrong hands. It is very powerful, but the Canadian spelling defaults to bloody British whi aih cannae ken
