Check Your Spelling, Grammar, and Style in Firefox and Chrome

May 18, 2010 at 11:08 am | Posted in Lifescape | 1 Comment

After a quick scan, grammar mistakes are highlighted in green, complex expressions and other syntax problems are highlighted in blue, and spelling mistakes are highlighted in red as would be expected. Click on an underlined word to choose one of its recommended changes or ignore the suggestion.

Or, if you want more explanation about what was wrong with that word or phrase, click Explain for more info.

And, if you forget to run an After the Deadline scan before submitting a text entry, it will automatically check to make sure you still want to submit it. Click Cancel to go back and check your writing first.

To change the After the Deadline settings, click its icon in the toolbar and select View Options.

Additionally, if you want to disable it on the site you’re on, you can click Disable on this site directly from the popup.

Microsoft Word has spoiled us with grammar, syntax, and spell checking, but the default spell check in Firefox and Chrome still only does basic checks.  Even webapps like Google Docs don’t check more than basic spelling errors.  However, WordPress.com is an exception; it offers advanced spelling, grammar, and syntax checking with its After the Deadline proofing system.  This helps you keep from making embarrassing mistakes on your blog posts, and now, thanks to a couple free browser plugins, it can help you keep from making these mistakes in any website or webapp.
