As you probably know, english isn't my native language , so from time to time I do make some grammar and spelling mistakes.I was searching for a good tool to correct all my spelling mistakes and I've stumbled upon After the Deadline. Right now I'm trying the Chrome plugin , and I think I'll keep using this add-on.
This tool is very useful and I think you'll like it more than your classic built-in browser language checker.

Yes, we do. We know that you are from Romania ((Deșteaptă-te, române!). But who cares about this? This is a computer/software related forum but not English language and literature one.
