Microsoft is developing a similar web extension to Grammarly. That would be an extension that basically will do the same things as the Grammarly extension on Google Chrome, by checking spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and suggesting corrections in real-time. Just like Google Chrome’s Grammarly, the extension should work well on the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge web browser that will be launched soon. The company invited developers to the extension platform to share their creations to double-checked and approved.
A Twitter user who goes by the name Florian B discovered a new Chrome extension. The extension identified as Microsoft Editor looks like its part of the Microsoft Office extension for Chrome. Microsoft Editor is currently in the trial stage. Intriguingly, just like Grammarly, users will also be able to disable Microsoft Editor for specific websites.
It looks like Microsoft Editor is almost done, even though its in the Beta stage now for Google Chrome. And Microsoft Edge would officially be launched next month, so it’s fair to assume that Microsoft Editor will to start at the same time.
Meet Microsoft Editor — The Edge Extension That Would Directly Compete With Grammarly
Users will probably be able to opt for either Grammarly or Microsoft Editor. The competition between these two extensions will be base on who has the better library rather than who has the best software.
On the one hand, Grammarly has been providing its services for a long time. Furthermore, alongside a free-to-download extension, Grammarly also offers some paid services that are more advanced into the text and suggest various enchantments that help to make the content look and sound better.
On the other hand, Microsoft has been climbing its cloud-based Office 365 and similar services, which present powerful productivity, security, correction, editing, and correction enhancement tools. Microsoft Office inbuilt grammar tool has been devotedly used for years. It is left to the users to choose between these two extensions.
