Microsoft’s free grammar and spelling checking browser extension is now available on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
“The Editor browser extension checks for grammar and spelling mistakes, and it makes suggestions for refining your writing, like addressing passive voice or wordiness,” a Microsoft support document explains of the very Grammarly-like offering.
When you install Microsoft Editor, you’ll see a new Editor icon in your browser’s toolbar. You can click that to sign-in to your Microsoft account or AAD. If you have an Office 365 or Microsoft 365 account, you’ll see additional refinements, whereas only basic spelling and grammar checking is available with free Microsoft accounts.
Microsoft will allow users to configure which refinements are enabled in a future release.
