I use Grammarly and it works well. It also checks for plagiarism. – dimensio1n0 May 5 '14 at 16:25
@dimensio1n0 Grammarly is not free, in either of the two meanings of the word. – user7610 Aug 5 '14 at 14:33
@user7610 Hm, then I guess I installed it when it used to be free (of cost). – dimensio1n0 Aug 6 '14 at 13:16

You can use LanguageTool :

  • Finds many errors that a simple spell checker cannot detect and several grammar problems.
  • Available as standalone, Firefox add-on and LibreOffice/OpenOffice add-on.
