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.
