LanguageTool for Chrome icon Keep a close eye on your grammar and spelling with the help of this unobtrusive yet highly efficient extension for Google Chrome

Desktop-based spellchecker and proofreader apps, as useful as they might be, might still seem a bit inconvenient to use when your activity implies a lot of online work.

For such situations, an extension like LanguageTool for Chrome has way more chances of helping you keep your grammar mistakes, typos, and other text style-related issues at bay.

Competent proofreading tool that comes wit support for the most popular languages

First off, you should know that this piece of software comes with support for 25 of the most popular languages out there such as English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Russian, Swedish, Polish, and German, just to name a few.

Secondly, it worth pointing out that the extension is capable of proofreading almost any type of online content, whether we are talking about basic webpage texts (highlight the text and click the extensions' icon or use CTR+SHIFT+SPACE) or comments or live posts on social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.

Packs all the basic features you can expect from tools such as this

There are other bells and whistles, as well, For example, you can add words to your personal dictionary to keep the false detections rate as low as possible, corrections can be applied with a single click within the extension's drop-down UI, and, as expected, notifications can be turned off altogether quite quickly.

It's not exactly what you would call a feature-packed extension, but there's no denying just how good the extension works. We also must say that, yes, working with large pieces of text might prove to be a bit cumbersome, but the result is not at all affected, and the corrections are neatly displayed, in spite of its possibly too compact UI.

Both intuitive and efficient spellchecker wrapper as a Chrome extension

Before we conclude, some extra interesting facts: the extension's capabilities are courtesy of languagetools.org platform and the connection between them is encrypted. It's also available as a standalone cross-platform desktop application, as an add-on for LibreOffice and OpenOffice, as well as for Google Docs.

Having said that, if you're looking for an unobtrusive yet very efficient tool that is capable of keeping a close eye on your typos and possible grammar mistakes during your online activities, then LanguageTool for Chrome is definitely a must-try.
