Chromium Updates Dictionaries; Google Gets More Social

As most of you may know, spell check can sometimes be wrong in browsers which means they are in need of an update. Over at the Chromium blog, they recently announced that they have been updating the dictionaries for the Chrome browser. They have added more than 1000 words and the recent dev-channel release has these updates. Now when you type in words like antivirus or webcam, they will appear as correct spellings. 
Now to the second part of the heading, Google is definitely getting more socialGoogle Friend Connect has been out for a while now, yesterday Google announced a new social bar and a new social web blog. This can be placed at the top or bottom of your page and will basically allow visitors to interact with each other. For more details check out the video below. I think this is going to be big for Google. People are getting tired of being social on just a handful of sites that, for the most part, remain very static and have very little customization. Also, similar people look at similar websites, this will allow people to socially connect easier. Great work Google.
