Fix your grammar instantly with the Grammarly Chrome extension

Not everyone has a personal assistant who can review all written and digital communication before it goes out. But it is true that people make judgements about you based on your use of spelling and grammar.

That's why I use Grammarly for Chrome.

This extension ensures every time I write something on the web (e.g. email, blog comments, forms, etc.) it is also proofread for spelling, syntax, and grammar. It has saved me 100 times over.

How do you know it's working? Just look for the little green "G" in the bottom corner of your screen or open text box.

If something isn't quite right, you'll see the green "G" turn red. That's how you know.

Of course, the one caveat is that you do have to do your work with web-based services, so it doesn't work in native applications. There is an annual fee of about $100, too. (This is a small price to pay in my opinion.)
