The use of Grammarly has increased, and we know that many Yellowdig students like to use Yellowdig and Grammarly in conjunction. However, using third-party plugins like Grammarly can interfere with Yellowdig if you’re not careful.
Although Grammarly supports four major browsers at this point, if you wish to use Yellowdig with it, we strongly encourage you to use Google Chrome. This recommendation come from team members who have done some testing using Grammarly with Firefox and Chrome. They reported virtually no problems on Chrome, but they did notice problems with Firefox.
Having said all that, please be informed that Grammarly is a third-party plugin and its integration with a browser can change without our knowledge or control. We cannot guarantee that Yellowdig will always be compatible with Grammarly.
