After about more than a month since we released Ginger Software as a Chrome Web extension, we have seen quite a number of early-adopters. Danny Stieben argues why one should adopt Ginger’s Chrome extension in his article “Get Improved Spelling & Grammar Corrections with Ginger [Chrome & Firefox]“.
He opens his case by highlighting the difference in prowess between a spell checker on Microsoft Word and a spell checker on a web browser. To quote him, “Life is great until you come to the browser. With it, you only get basic spell checking, and nothing else. This is a problem for those who rely on good spelling and grammar checking.”
His case for adopting Ginger’s web extension revolves around 2 main points:
1. Web browsers like Firefox currently use an open source spell checker, Hunspell, which is relatively basic compared to current market offerings.
2. While Chrome will eventually adopt Google’s new contextual-based spell checker, it will not be until a few more months.
For these couple of reasons, Stieben concludes that Ginger’s Chrome extension is worthwhile to download.
Do download and utilize Ginger’s web extension for better grammar & spell checking convenience on your web browser.
