Ginger: Arguably The Most Efficient Grammar & Spell Check Extension Available [Chrome]

Chrome as a browser wins mass appeal for its speed and cleaner interface. Most of the other features are like something extra. At the core of it, Chrome is preferred for its fast startup and being able to load pages faster. One of its somewhat less impressive features is the spell check, which relies on the open source Hunspell library and doesn’t always get all the words right. Additionally, it lacks a grammar check. Add to that the fact that when you use Chrome’s spell check via the right-click context menu, you have to go through a long list of non-spell check related options just to find the word suggestions. Ginger is a Chrome extension that adds a more reasonable spell check feature, less of a long menu to scroll through, and a reasonably good grammar check. Read More
