Ginger is a Chrome extension that proofreads text once it’s placed in Ginger’s popup window.  “The advantage that Ginger has over the spell-checker in Google Docs is that it will look at words in the context of entire sentences–and thus identify more errors, such as homonym confusion.”  The Ginger extension also features a rephrasing tool which will make suggestions for stronger sentences
