    Open source. Works just as good, if not better than Grammarly, and it's cheaper if you do opt for one of the paid plans.

    It does not correct the style of writing to a better way, it just corrects spelling and grammar.

    It's ok! I thought it was a few years behind the top brand. Not impressive.
