Google and Microsoft have worked together to improve the spellcheck experience in Chrome and Edge. The latest versions of Chrome and Edge are now powered by the built-in Windows Spellcheck feature rather than the previous Hunspell open source implementation.

In Microsoft Edge 83 this feature is available immediately and is supported on Windows 8.1 and above.
In Google Chrome 83 it is not default yet, but can be enabled in chrome://flags - "Use the Windows OS spell checker".
