Do you write lot of stuff from your browsers? If yes, then here is a best spelling and grammar checker for your browser. Being a blogger, I do a lot of writing stuff online. Sometimes I need to check spelling and grammar whatever I have written, till today I have used WordWeb dictionary to do this task. But the problem with WordWeb is, it cannot check grammar, and spelling suggestion is also not so good.
I use WordWeb dictionary because it is light weight, we use this offline, provides example sentences, offer pronunciation of words and of course it’s free. I prefer WordWeb software for offline work. I still use this on my PC for offline access. The problem with this dictionary is, we cannot check spelling and grammar in real time.
I recently came to know about this cool service. After trying this service for few days, I can say this is one of the best extension available for checking spelling and grammar in real time on your browser.
Grammarly provides browser extensions for all popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox and for safari. Just install Grammarly on your browser and activate it to start checking all type of grammar and spelling mistakes wherever you go.
