Microsoft to Integrate Microsoft Editor, Grammar and Spell-Check Tool, Directly into Edge

Microsoft Plans to Save a Whole Lot of People from Making Embarrassing Blunders

Microsoft is planning to build its grammar and spell checker, Microsoft Editor, right into the Edge web browser…

Microsoft is working on a subtle but very useful change to its flagship web portal that will save its users from potentially embarrassing situations. The software giant is going to make Edge a bit smarter by intertwining Microsoft Editor, its Grammarly rival, that is currently available only as a browser extension.

Microsoft to Integrate Microsoft Editor, Grammar and Spell-Check Tool, Directly into Edge

Microsoft editor will live in the background of the edge browser, capable of checking grammar and spelling of twenty different languages. However, the tool will only leap into action for the default language set by the individual user. (Although people are free to change that preference at any time, they so choose, making it quite flexible.)

Right now, Microsoft editor is a standalone browser extension that must be proactively installed. This would seamlessly integrate it into the web portal and work in many areas, flagging misspellings and grammar errors alike. This technology is quite similar to Google’s, which works in a number of its products, including Gmail, Docs, Keep Notes, and many other services as well. Additionally, Microsoft says it plans to introduce predictive text for Edge in the not-too-distant future.
