A spoken colloquialism that existed pre-internet, despite what many people claim.

"Prolly" is a clipped pronunciation of "probably"; compare with "g'day" as a clipped pronunciation of "good day", or "gonna" as a common spoken shortening of "going to".

Certainly non-standard, but not necessarily indicative of the writer's laziness. For some, writing in this manner mimics their natural speech pattern/dialect.

Literary colloquialism for "probably", most likely first used in print in John Kennedy Toole's Confederacy of Dunces, (1980), in the speech of one of the book's characters, the mother of the protagonist, Ignatius J. Reilly. The use of the word is meant to reflect the speech typical of white working-class residents of New Orleans, Louisiana.
That prolly is the reason he left in the first place.

Shortened version of "probably." Used by lazy people who justify the misspelling by claiming that it is faster to type 6 letters than it is to type 8 letters.
I could prolly save more time and appear less stupid by typing "prob" instead.
