I thought Chrome checked grammar as you type?
...but does not seem to do this anymore?!

I'm sure not too long ago, Google Chrome was checking my grammar as I typed, underlying problematic words/phrases with a grey squiggle. This was in addition to the regular red squiggle when spell checking.

However, it is no longer doing this (version 30.0.1599.69 m) and I can find no way of enabling this?

I have googled some articles dating back to February which report this new grammar checking feature - so I don't think I've been dreaming!?

You can toggle spell checking via chrome://settings/languages. I don't recall it ever being enabled by default, though.

Yes, you can also toggle spell checking via the right mouse / context menu on text boxes. However, I am specifically asking about grammar checking - this was a new feature a few months back.

Actually, I think I've found it... you seem to have to enable the additional option "Ask Google for suggestions". Chrome now appears to grammar check as well. However, this also changes the spell checking behaviour quite significantly? Certain words that are obviously wrong are no longer being picked up?! Maybe there is just more of a delay...?
