Spell Checking?

If you are looking for spell checking we recommend Grammarly and LanguageTool as they both provide browser extensions for spelling and grammar checking.

Update times and release

When the developers of the extension think that a new release is ready and tested, they create a new release and publish it on Firefox and Chrome addons stores. Then, we have to wait a few hours for Chrome and Firefox. After that, all installations will be updated automatically.
