There’s a new Japanese reader extension called 10ten in town. For anyone studying or dealing with Japanese content on the web, a few major extensions have made things a bit easier.

Grammarly vs Microsoft Editor: Which one is right for you?
Grammarly is one of the most well-known grammar checkers. Still, Microsoft has recently made a push into this area by introducing Microsoft Editor in Word for web as well as a separate browser extension.
Many of the features for both Grammarly and Microsoft Editor require a premium membership, but which one is the better checker?

Why Firefox is doomed to fail
I’m going to post my thoughts about Firefox, which is most certainly going to ruffle some feathers out there. Firefox has a limited amount of time left before it becomes irrelevant on the web. Once an Internet Explorer killer, it’s unfortunate to see the state that Mozilla’s browser finds itself in now. Here are some of the reasons why I think Firefox won’t last another decade.
Print Friendly extension makes printing and PDFs better
Using the Print Friendly extension in your browser of choice, you can cut out content that doesn’t need to be included when you print or make a PDF. I had forgotten entirely about this superb utility until recently, so I’m happy I rediscovered it and now want to share it with you.
