Users will also get an option to disable it for specific websites. As the screenshots suggest, it is still on preview and will take a few more weeks to finally available widely.
Grammarly is popular among Internet users and ruling this segment. It offers free extension with premium plans with advance recommendations and more features. It will be interesting to see how Microsoft wants to offer this, but Grammarly must look for plan B to be relevant.

Microsoft’s latest browser Edge is also based on Chromium, so we can assume that this extension will also work with Edge.
We should know more about this extension more in the coming weeks. I will keep an eye on this and will surely report it. If you use Microsoft Office extension, make sure to check Microsoft Editor in your Chrome.
