I've installed it on Chrome. It's less cumbersome than Scrivener and a little more robust than Word. I recommend checking it out.

I've only just got it. It feels familiar and I like many of the features, including saving older versions automatically.I use it, and it has been pretty reliable. Though, being paranoid, I do also make regular off-line backups.
The worse drawback for me, so far, has been the limit on the length of document it can convert to PDF format.
I don't use Scriverer. I got it but found it too much. I just want a word processor and that's about it.If you're only using Scrivener as a word processor, you're missing the boat. The organizational features are the reason to use Scrivener. I use Google Docs to share collaborative projects, not to work in.
I know what it is and it's odd. I want to be published and work towards that so if the word processor I'm using looks like something that's published, it has a psychological effect on me. Changing the fonts has a similar effect on me too, depending on what genre I'm writing.You may find it more useful when you move up to novels, although I have a Scrivener project that I keep all my WF creative material in. Very handy.
Do you write the whole manuscript in one on Word or have separate files for each chapter? I've always written them separately but I'm wondering if it's better to keep them all together.MS Word to write, google docs to share. I probably should move to scrivener at some point.
Scrivener can be set up to look like a word processor or a 'published' book. I have mine set up as the latter and I could never go back to Word which, to me, is software produced from the depths of Hades.I know what it is and it's odd.

I actually have it divided into three, largely so that when I share it to betas it doesn't crash their apps or somehow put them off. But I loaded my one thus-far-complete MS into a single monster of a doc yesterday in readines for KDP. For shorter novels, they are all in one part until that becomes too weighty. One doc per chapter would quickly get very messy for me, as there is lots of NOVELNAME_finalfinal_version21_b_thisisit_v7A.theactual_real_realthing_2-for_bob_the_beta.docx type conventionsDo you write the whole manuscript in one on Word or have separate files for each chapter?

Google Docs allows you to sort by heading, which give you much the same thing.LONG ago I used to write a chapter per document. But then I had to concatenate them all to publish, so I went to one doc for a novel. Scrivener gives me both. One document per chapter, but it puts them together on the export when I'm ready to take it to my proofreading app and then publish.
What's the best grammar checker add on?I like it because of the free language and grammar correctors. One of these called language tools works almost as good as grammarly and is free. I also use readspeaker there. Google extensions make it a good choice for people who find grammar challenging. I barely use Scrivener because of that and since I am not planning a novel anytime soon.
