If you are working online or you want to start working online. Are you a blogger, YouTuber, affiliate marketer or you are selling your own products online? This post is about ten chrome extensions you must install on your chrome browser and fortunately, they also work on Microsoft edge. Let’s get started right away.
The first chrome extension in the list and the one I considered the most important one maybe it’s because I’m a content writer. If you are a writer either a blogger or a YouTuber, digital marketer you find writing at least a few sentences to convince potential customers or readers of your blog posts. Grammarly is a treasure you can’t afford to ignore. After installing the Grammarly extension on your Chrome, or Firefox, or Microsoft Edge browsers, whenever you’re typing any statements, big or small, Grammarly small icon pops up at the edge of the input widget to correct the grammar errors that you make knowingly or accidentally.
Grammarly will underline the word that seems grammatically incorrect and when you click on the word, different suggestions pop up and you can correct your errors in just two clicks. Grammarly has other features besides grammar checking. Other features include Plagiarism Checker and Tone Detector. Grammarly plagiarism checker helps bloggers, writers, students to check their write up against billions of pages and documents on the web to detect plagiarism in your text and other writing issues. Because using someone else’s text without citing them or proper attribution can cause serious legal issues. Grammarly Tone Detector on the other hand tells you how your text sounds. Does it sound friendly, or confident, or worried, and others. By analyzing your choice of words, capitalization, phrasing, even punctuations, the tone checker can identify the tone of your text and you can check it before you hit publish or send. Grammarly is free for starters and if you need more features you can pay for the premium package.
