Grammarly for Chrome

No one’s grammar is perfect, especially when writing an essay the night before it’s due. That’s where Grammarly can help. Grammarly is a Google Chrome extension that checks your grammar as you type. After you download it and create an account, you can use their service to check your grammar and spelling, as well as find some synonyms that may better fit your writing. Although the extension doesn’t support Google Drive at the moment, you can copy and paste it into their website checker, which works just fine. It currently supports Microsoft Word, Gmail, and plenty of other websites, just look for the green G on the bottom-right of where you would type. As you type, the extension will search for any errors or inconsistencies and suggest possible edits, which it underlines in orange or red to let you know. When you click on the underline, it will tell you what it thinks is wrong, and what you could change it to. Though some advanced issues are behind a subscription payment, it will help you with the more basic issues for free.
