Description from store This extension allows you to type hiragana and katakana characters without downloading an IME. To use: Type the pronunciation of the character you want into the input field, use up and down arrows to navigate and press enter to select. Change notes below: Truth be told I had no idea that people were actually using this and had only chanced upon the comments in the reviews this morning while I was trying to publish one of a couple of terrible themes that I use while I'm at work. The comments were all absolutely valid and I felt pretty bad that I hadn't addressed them sooner so I got working as soon as I got home. Please feel free to let me know what you think! - Added a method to restrict the character set to only use hiragana or katakana - Made exactly-matched characters appear first in the selection - Refactored the code to be only slightly better than it was when I initially made this

  • (2018-08-15) Emily Guerrero: I don't like that katakana is the default and you have to cycle through to get hiragana. I wish there was just a selection for type in hiragana OR type in katakana (or the cycle one). Just wish I had options. Otherwise it works but it would take me a long time to write anything substantial with the system that is put in place now.
