- by Doris, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great 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)
- by Firefox user 12346924, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Beautifully 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.
- by Firefox user 13612474, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great 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.
- by Bobi Bulgaria, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Very 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
