Grammarly for Chrome is a great way for writers to check their spelling and grammar from within the Chrome browser.

If you want to look like a professional writer, Grammarly for Chrome is one of the best options to choose. Through this software program, you can instantly check for spelling and grammar mistakes as you write. You do not have to actually do anything for Grammarly to check your work. It operates like spell check in Microsoft Word except from within your browser. Whether you are typing an email or responding to an instant message, it will automatically check for errors and underline any mistakes.

The original program was designed for professional writers, but it also works well for students or anyone who wants to look professional. It is especially useful for anyone who is not a native English speaker. Through Grammarly, you can immediately spot any errors or mistakes in your writing.

You can use this simple program in two different ways. If you go to the Grammarly website, you can directly input sentences into the spell-checking software. You can also set the program up to automatically check anything that you type in your Google Chrome browser. Once Grammarly finds a mistake, it underlines or highlights the error. Then, you can look at the software's suggestions and decide if you want to change the error or not.

The biggest downside to Grammarly is the cost. While there are some grammar checkers out there that are available for free, Grammarly charges a monthly subscription fee for the premium version. The premium version includes better suggestions and information about why an error should be changed. Luckily, Grammarly for Chrome is also available in a free version. Writers, students and grammar aficionados can try out the free version before they decide if they want to upgrade to the more expensive option.
