@AIQ I think those are good etymology questions, but some may potentially be answered with some Google fu

Is there a way to use Grammarly online, without having to install something?
 
I doubt it.
 
Oh, maybe it is.
At first I tried this: grammarly.com/grammar-check
But after entering text I only got list of errors without listing the places where they are located.
But the I tried to sign up here: grammarly.com/signup
I had to fill in some stuff.
 
What I got after that is this:
It's not perfect - the problematic places are just underlined, but no suggestions are offered. But it's at least something.
 
yeah, better than nothing

If some people around here have experience with Grammarly, what can I actually get if I want to use it on desktop. I see something called Grammarly for Windows - so I guess if I install that I will be able to check what I am writing in various documents. And I see also some extension for Chrome.
In the above screenshot I got "We found 4 additional issues in this text available only for Premium users".

Well, OTOH I understand that they want to get paid for their product.
Now that I found out that I can use it on the web without installing anything, I will sometimes try to do this. To see how the free version works.
Maybe if I will see that it is useful, I might try to install the Chrome Extension.
 
good plan
keep an eye out for other products

For the things which are available in the free version, it shows me suggestions:
Just to make the transcript easier to read for other users who come here, I'll mention that the above link is to the Wikipedia article: Comparison of anti-plagiarism software

Yes, my bad. Sorry.
A comparison of English grammar software products.
 
There's no need to apologize. (I am not really sure to which extent my addition is useful - after all, anybody can hover over the link and mainly, not that many people come here.)
 
Yeah, it used to be a lot busier here.
 
@user85795 Something like that might be useful, too. I guess some comparisons are available online
 
Niiice.
Buyer beware.
 
Anyway, I'll have to leave - there's some stuff to do IRL.
Thanks for your responses and have a nice day!
