Add grammar checking, punctuation tips, synonym suggestion and a dictionary to Chrome. Smart Spellchecker by Grammarly is an extension for Google’s browser that includes a wide variety of language tools – perfect for students, writers and anyone else who needs to write regularly (practically everyone). Once it’s installed you’ll see a green circle in the bottom-right corner of most text fields online – it means Smart Spellchecker is active.
Spelling, grammar and punctuation errors are pointed out. This doesn’t just correct you, though: it explains the rules behind the rules you’ve broken in a popup, as seen above. It won’t always be correct but use this long enough and you’ll learn something.
Another thing you’ll learn: the meaning of words. Once you’ve installed this extension you can double-click any word for a quick definition.
Learning the meaning of words is a valuable skill, so this extension may be worth installing for this functionality alone.
