    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.

    Go to After the Deadline home page.

    About ;

    After the Deadline is a language checker for the web with:

    • Contextual Spell Checking
    • Advanced Style Checking
    • Intelligent Grammar Checking

    Features :

    • Checks Spelling – Spell checker looks at context and uses artificial intelligence to make recommendations.
    • Detects Misused Words – Most spell checkers assume any word in their dictionary is correct regardless of context. This means all misused word errors go unnoticed.
    • Checks Style – Style checker has thousands of rules and uses context to choose the best suggestions.
    • Checks Grammar – The grammar checker in After the Deadline protects you from common writing errors. After the Deadline uses statistics to automatically find exceptions to its grammar rules, making it one of the smartest grammar checkers around.
    • Explains Errors – The misused word detector, grammar checker, and style checker explain the mistakes and suggestions to you. Click an error and choose the “Explain …” option.

    Reason for English spell checking is that the forum language is English per the forum rules.This add on will aid those on the site whose native language is not English.

    I wonder to user this tool for others languages on others websites/forums without installing multiple dictionaries on FF.

    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.
