Google’s Chrome web browser enjoys about 67% of market share and extensions are probably a big contributor to that number. Not familiar with extensions? They’re small software programs that customize the browsing experience. They enable users to tailor Chrome functionality and behavior to individual needs or preferences. They are built on web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.

Most of them are completely free or freemium (free up to certain point or limited to some functionality) and can be browsed and installed in the Chrome Web Store.

Grammarly

From grammar and spelling to style and tone, Grammarly helps you eliminate writing errors and find the perfect words to express yourself. You’ll get suggestions from Grammarly as you write on Gmail, Twitter, LinkedIn, and nearly everywhere else you find yourself writing. Grammarly is a writing assistant that goes deeper than grammar to offer you comprehensive writing feedback. You can be confident that your writing is not only correct, but clear and concise, too.
