Autocorrection is almost a scourge but for some it is a boon, I am English so (AND SO) to me Colour is the correct spelling and there are innumerable
other time's that Chromium has been a pain the proverbial arse.
But I had this debate with myself for some time, which is the correct form of English - not that my own grammar or syntax is (ARE point made) that
good or that I don't make typing errors - I do actually (should be I ACTUALLY DO) very often indeed.
It turn's out that while I may correctly use the spelling Centre, Colour and indeed several other's that jump to mind the alternative Phonetic
spelling used by most of the world thanks to the Saturation of Americanization's such as Center, Color etc are equally correct.
Also if you use Chrome then try Edge or IE then they handle those spelling check's differently, Indeed Edge on Windows 10 is actually correct for my
regional location as far as those spelling's are concerned and will flag up American phonetic spelling's were they differ from the correct (In
England) spelling's as wrong while vice versa Chromium seems at least for me to prefer the American form's.
Here is the truth though,.
Neither is correct or incorrect though in most cases the English Spelling is actually the original and older - though that is not actually always the
case as some of these spelling's have a very variable history and word's and meaning's change over time to at least some degree.
It is awfully annoying though to say the least at time's.
You can usually turn autocorrection of though or likely though I may not be an expert in it there may be a method to update your Chrome install's
localization setting's but be careful as while rare this can lead to some incompatibility's with some web site's.
