In one of our previous posts, we showed you how to disable the inbuilt spell checker of Firefox and turn off the history tracker. I am sure our readers who prefer Chrome over Firefox would love to know how they could do the same there.

About disabling the browser history all together, there’s no such thing in Chrome and browsing in Incognito mode is the only option left with the user. But you can certainly disable the inbuilt dictionary in few simple steps.

To disable Chrome inbuilt history click on the wrench icon to open Chrome menu and click on Settings.

On chrome settings page, click on Show advanced settings at the bottom of the page and click on the button Languages and spellchecker settings.
