Grammarly for Chrome
Check spelling and grammar when you type online

Grammarly is a free Chrome extension which checks your spelling and grammar on Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, in web forms and just about anywhere else you type online.

Once installed, the system works automatically. Start typing in a supported textbox, Grammarly displays its icon in the bottom right of the box to show it's working, and problem words or phrases are immediately underlined in red.

It's a familiar idea, but Grammarly goes a lot further than some of the competition. Context-sensitive checking means the system doesn't just complain about spelling (theyre), it also knows when words are used incorrectly (go over they're). And the grammar checker moves beyond the basics to tackle very complex errors and issues.

Fortunately, none of this complexity is visible to the user. If there are no mistakes, you'll see nothing beyond the Grammarly icon. If there are problem areas, they're underlined in red, and hovering your mouse over them displays a pop-up with an explanation and some alternatives. Click one of these suggestions to replace the original text, or tweak it manually, and carry on typing.

Sign up for a free Grammarly account and "you will start to receive weekly emails with personalized insights and performance stats". Doesn't appeal? No problem, it's not compulsory, the extension will carry on working regardless.

Verdict:

Easy to use and genuinely intelligent, Grammarly is an excellent way to improve your writing.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
