Red Squiggles

The google chrome browser has a built in spell checker. When you are filling in a form and type a word that chrome does not recognize, it will underline it with a red squiggly line. Listed here are a number of words I have found that chrome does not recognize, but are in fact real words and curiously are even recognized by the google search engine. I have not done any research or datamining for this, I've just written the words down as I encounter them through normal usage.

Perhaps a poem could be written using only these words.

1 Originally a trademark of Xerox, and hence capitalised, but this was relinquished during the standardization process, and it may now be written in lower case.(wiktionary.org)

2 Ocytocin is a hormone. Chrome offers to correct it to Oxycontin, which is the trademark name of a narcotic pain killer.

3 As in no-brainer.

* Fixed at some point after being added to this list.

Chrome in general seems to be a curious thing.
