The CurrCon Java Applet displays prices on this web page converted with today’s exchange rates into your local international currency, e.g. Euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds, Indian Rupees… CurrCon requires an up-to-date browser and Java version 1.8, preferably 1.8.0_112. If you can’t see the prices in your local currency, Troubleshoot. Use Firefox for best results.

Grammarly is a web service that checks your grammar, e.g. spelling, consistency of voice, plural agreement, avoidance of trite phrases, plagiarism, commonly confused words, sentence fragments, faulty parallelism, word order, punctuation, wordiness, colloquial speech, formatting etc. I ran a couple of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) documents through it I had already proofread. It rated them both under 50% correct. Grammarly does 150 different checks. It uses advanced algorithms that take the context of each word into account. You use it either by pasting in to a web form or uploading a document with your browser and it lists its complaints. It is not an editor. However, there are also add-ins for Outlook and Word.

It supports .txt, .doc (word), .docx (LibreOffice), .rtf (rich text format). I suspect it also supports HTML.

Grammarly just provides you a list of suggested corrections. It does not make changes to your original document and give it back to you in the original format.

You can check up to 300 documents or 150,000 words in any 30-day period, or 100 documents or 50,000 words in any 24-hour period. If you revalidate the same document, that counts as another document. Grammarly is aimed at someone creating new documents each day. Mostly what I do is make small changes to a set of 9000 files. Even I just change a sentence or two I have to revalidate the whole document. It would soon blow the limit if I routinely ran Grammarly after any edits. It is quite expensive, $140.00 USD per year. There is a free trial, but you must give your credit card number just to try it. There is a free version that works inside Chrome.

I think the Chrome add-in is free.
