  • just works anywhere
  • I have no notification.
    I select, right-click, click Wordcount &... nothing!
    Some reviewers say the figure should appear top-right for 10 secs. Not for me.
    Hi there,
    I know you will feel this redundant question, I fell in this trap many times, but by any chance is your do not disturb mode(if on mac) is on?
    Do not disturb mode does not allow any notifications, so it will not work if do not disturb mode is on.
  • اضافة رائعة شكرآ للمطور
  • Really helpful when you write lot many CFPs these days. :-)
  • Would be a very useful tool if it worked properly. It gives numbers around 2,500 words for anything more than that. Otherwise works great for shorter texts.
    Thanks for reporting this, I will sort this out soon :)

    EDIT =>

    Hi there, v2.0 supports any length of text, thanks for your inputs that motivated me to work on it and fix it!

    Did you get a chance to try the new version?
  • kept capping the count at 2927 words, no matter how many words on the page

  • only counts to ~3k words, ~15k characters. nice for short texts, useless for longer stuff.

  • Great little tool! I tried other add-ons, but this works best for me. Thank you! I like the little delay before the counter display autohides as I sometimes need to refer to it. I would love this more if it would have options for:

    1- directly displaying the count in the context menu (so just quick look in one click);

    2- display character count only, word only, or both (for extensive use, immediately seeing just what you need helps);

    3- keyboard shortcut (although I did a little keyboard macro for myself so I only need to press one key).
    Thanks for using and loving it.
    1- I am not sure if the APIs allow that(I will try the same :) )
    2- yes that will be a plus(I will implement addon preferences for that)
    3- That's an awesome idea(It will be really helpful if you can suggest any shortcut)
  • Super useful! Thanks.
  • I have a long document (71 page/25321 words, when I made a control count in a word processor) for which the Word Count addition reported that the page contained 2497 words.

    Thus, unfortunately, I must deem this addon to be unreliable for my use.

    I did of course select the entire text. (I used the shortcut Cmd + A in Firefox for macOS.)
    As mentioned this addon only gives word count of selected text, I am not sure if all the text was selected, so it might have given the result only for selected text.

  • Beautifully simple and incredibly useful for those of us who write for a living.

    The only suggestion I would have is to include a keyboard shortcut. I rarely use the mouse when typing, so a shortcut would be great.
    Actually this is a great suggestion, let me check what best shortcut can be (not conflicting with others).
  • It works well, simple and useful!
  • Great extension. It does exactly what you'd think it does. Nothing more, nothing less. Just how I like it.

    My only suggestion to the developers is to allow users the ability to move the box, or have it autohide after X seconds. I just want to glance at the word or character count, not have it stay on my screen at the top right corner where I might accidentally close the browser instead of the Word Count popup box.

    EDIT: okay, it did autohide for me, but it was more like 10ish seconds rather than 5. Regardless, this extension still does exactly what it should, so I will continue to use it.
    Thanks for using word count, it counts :)
    Currently, this uses default notification of browser(to keep it simple), and it autohides after ~5 sec.
  • It does what it says and is not in my way when I don't want it. The addon is completely hidden until you right click.
  • Exactly what I was looking for.
  • Very useful add-on. Would be even better if you implement a separate counting of actual characters and spaces between words. Example:

    Total words: 467
    Total characters and spaces: 1395
    Total characters: 1312
    Total spaces: 83
  • Just in time for NaNoWriMo.
