Grammarly Comes to Microsoft Edge

Grammarly Comes to Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge just picked up a key extension on which I rely every day: Grammarly is now available for Microsoft’s web browser.

“Millions of users rely on Grammarly every day to make their messages, documents, and social media posts clear, mistake-free, and impactful,” the Grammarly website explains.

Brad previously discussed Grammarly in The Essentials: Tools To Write (Premium). And while this is a big deal for me personally—I am a writer, after all—the release of Grammarly on Microsoft Edge is, in fact, a big deal for anyone who uses this browser. It can check the spelling and grammar of anything you write in the browser, whether it’s an email message, a Facebook post, a website or comment, or whatever. If you use Microsoft Edge, you need Grammarly. Period.

In fact, this is such an important milestone that it may be the tipping point for those who can’t otherwise use Microsoft Edge for whatever reasons. Be sure to check it out. On Edge, or on whatever browser you use.

You can download Grammarly for Microsoft Edge from the Windows Store. It’s free, and there’s a paid premium offering as well.

Thanks to Neowin for the tip.

    <p>The Grammarly website uses the word "impactful"? Yuck. I wouldn't use that software in a million years.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#174653"><em>In reply to naven87:</em></a></blockquote><p>Yep, have never understood the strategy for finding/browsing Edge Extensions. I always thought that Edge Extensions would be a top level menu item like Apps, Games, Music etc. – but the only real way to find the page of Edge Extensions is to go to it via the Extensions item in the more menu in Edge and then visit the curated page of Edge Extensions (which doesn't list Grammarly yet)</p>

    <p>It's a very bad sign when every new Edge extension is a newsworthy event. "1 down, 1 million to go!" Edge is great for touchscreens and on low-end hardware, but it's basically unusable until they close the extensions gap. That also means that they're going to need to start allowing extensions in InPrivate windows, which they seem to have no intention of doing.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#174798"><em>In reply to MikeCerm:</em></a></blockquote><p>They create a "browser" built on the flimsy, mobile-oriented WinRT10/XAML framework (UWP) rather than tried-and-true Win32, then release it on only one version of one operating system (Win10) – and they wonder nobody it can't gain any traction on Chrome – a browser that works on everything? Facepalm.</p><p>It's like they don't actually want to compete.</p>

    <p>Given the frequency of errors I find in these articles, I'd say it's not working.</p>
