Chrome 26 (Version 26.0.1410.43 to be exact) has been released by Google to the stable channel. The most pertinent changes have been made to the spell checker function of the browser which gains the ability to distinguish between homonyms, check grammar and perform context sensitive fixes.
In addition, words that have been added to the browser's dictionary can be synced between various Chrome installations if you have Google Sync enabled. This should help provide a more cohesive and cogent browsing experience to those who use multiple devices at home and work. Chrome 26 also comes with asynchronous DNS implementation which should help reduce the time a user has to wait for DNS resolution.
In order to avail yourself of the new spell checker features, you must have "ask Google for suggestions" enabled. This can be done by right clicking on the text field at Google and navigating to the spell-checker options menu. For now the new spell checker features are only applicable to Windows and Linux versions. Google is still working on Mac support for the features. OS X has its own system wide spell checker already built in but it obviously lacks the Chrome specific features.
