Chrome fixes wrong uses of 'Literally'

  • If you're careless about grammar and happen to have Google Chrome, chances are it will solve all your problems. The plugin fixes the incorrect uses of "literally" that are all over the Internet and replaces the word with "figuratively." 

    Here's an example: "The 2014 MTV Movie Awards Were Figuratively on Fire."

    However, there is a downside since even the correct usage gets fixed. "The linguistic abuse of literally has got out of control," Alison Flood of the Guardian writes. "Now it is time for figuratively to suffer."
