Only a few tools are equipped with the required algorithm to detect syntactic deviations in writing. In today’s post, we are sharing with you 3 popular Chrome extensions that will help you detect and correct grammatical errors in your written communications be it in an email, a social media post, or on a formal research paper. Besides grammatical error detection, they also offer other interesting features to enhance your writing style which includes, vocabulary suggestions, spell check, translation, synonyms, word definitions and many more.
