- by K3A, 5 months agoRated 1 out of 5Badly-written 36 MB addon which stops working after it is disabled and re-enabled, requiring reinstall. The company has very aggressive marketing and forces people to install this addon. In contrast, Linguix grammar checker works online without any addon. This addon integrates everywhere, thus sending anything what is typed to Grammarly. They don't care if it contains sensitive info.
- by Firefox user 14751375, 8 months agoRated 1 out of 5It used to work on my Auctiva page but all of a sudden stopped working a few days ago. I re-installed - still not working. Still works on my Yahoo mail, but not on Auctiva.
- by radostin, 9 months agoRated 1 out of 5Grammarly performs very poorly.
For instance, according to Grammarly the following nonsense has:
- Correctness: Looks good
- Clarity: Very clear
- Engagement: Very engaging
- Delivery: Just right
"These could simple and straight flat blue. Yet not tomorrow rain future but today yes maybe or might, even yes, sun, cloud, TV or desk. With this no black and red, yellow blue with green, sunshine with no and yes."
- by Spaced Skunk, a year agoRated 1 out of 5This add-on would be useful for many people but on Firefox it just isn't usable. With Grammarly activated Firefox CPU usages goes through the roof on my Macbook. My Windows PC is bareable because it's a powerful machine, but on a slower work provided PC Grammarly is just too slow. I suspect Firefox's API just isn't providing the needed functions for Grammarly to work smoothly, but unfortunately this goes against the extension itself.
- by ttbit, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Grammarly sends up to 10k DNS requests to it's servers every day. That's 380 requests per hour! or 6.3 requests per minute! Queries servers are grammarly.io, grammarly.com, grammarlyaws.com.
Why would they do that?? Why would grammarly addon ask for IP of mothership server so often? Uninstalling this.
- by Mixpal, a year agoRated 1 out of 5I thought that this was a great grammar tool, but when I Started watching a video, The video would just not appear. And when I removed Grammarly, The video worked absolutely fine. I was not signed in, so My guess is that If you don't sign up/in, they will break the website you are on.
- by What???, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Very inaccurate, but one of the better ones though which doesnt say much. they all are sheet.
This add-on insists on creating and storing nasty cookies. It interferes with adblockers too. It provides slightly better spell check results than FF which is pathetically useless. How could FF have such a poor native spell check?
Since there's no way for this add-on can't run without you first connecting and accepting cookies from your gmail account, it's uninstalled.
