The use of Grammarly has increased, and we at Yellowdig have been receiving quite a few requests from our ardent fans and users on being able to integrate both. 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 a few of our team members do 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.

How to pin an extension in Chrome
Chrome has changed the way Extensions are accessed since its update to version 84 and above. Typically, the downloaded extension sits next to the search bar. Now, Chrome has left the choice to the user to decide which extension can be pinned and which stays within a new button that stores all installed Extensions.
