Default Weird, blue underlined text on TA... advertising? Or just me?

So here's what I wake up to see today:



I first thought it was some sort of malware which infected my PC and/or Chrome. Read up a bit about it and saw many sites mention it's a type of contextual marketing?

Is anyone else seeing this, or has some across this?

Looks like some sort of spell check or grammar check.

Looks like hyperlinked advertising. I don't see it on any of my devices though.
