I don’t know who likes Google Chrome extensions and who doesn’t, but there are some good ones out there.
Simple (but depending on what you’re reading, can help you out)
- Google Dictionary
Especially, a user can sequentially look up words in the definitions and/or jump out to a typical Google search.
- Toucan – Language learning
This is good clean fun 😊
- Wordtune (like Grammarly but goes to writing with clarity/style)
Seems to work very well but the free version allows only 20 rewrites per day.
I’m still evaluating the free version.
There is a great idea behind this app; how you say it is often as important as what you say (†).
I have tried both briefly but have no opinion as to which is better. For now, I’m keeping both pinned to Chrome.
I might replace my paid versions of SnagIt and Camtasia with these free extensions.
Full disclosure: I let Wordtune rewrite this sentence; I picked from their dropdown list of 17 rewrites.
