Description from store This extension modifies the default encoding, useful for chrome 55+ which removed this standard feature. Optionally specify which webpage you'd like to apply the default encoding. If you need an additional encoding that's not included, send a note in the comments. Specify the exact one you need according to the IANA character set naming (http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets/character-sets.xhtml) and we can add it for you.

  • (2017-04-20) Anita Y Tsuchiya: Works perfectly!
  • (2017-04-02) Jo Li: I downloaded this Extension because, as of Google Chrome 55 (I guess), my I've been having problems reading my offline "WYSIWYG-compatible" HTML files. (They're producing garbage characters and the like.) However... this Extension doesn't do anything for files you're trying to view which are on your hard drive or network. It ONLY works on live websites... most likely for the same reasons that the "Set Character Encoding" Extension doesn't work with offline files. I also can't tell if it's actually doing anything on live websites since most sites I go to have a default encoding meta tag... but benefit of the doubt, it probably is. So, yeah. Useless to me, but probably helpful for everyone else.

  • (2017-01-13) Min Jiang: I like the function that can specify changing web pages. Please add GB18030. I need this encoding. Thank you.

  • (2019-01-22, v:0.0.1) Jae Sook Song: 사용법
    encoding을 다운 받았는데 적용이 안되고 확장 프로그램 관리에서 모든 사이트 허용하라고 하는데.. 안되네요
  • (2017-04-24, v:0.0.1) Manuel S. Lara Bisch: Cannot choose EUC-JP encoding
    The only encoding choices available to me with this extension are: Unicode (UTF-8) Latin-1 ISO 8059-1 ASCII (US-ASCII) Windows (CP-1252) Japanese (ISO-2022-JP) Shift JIS Big5 Pages encoded with EUC-JP (e.g. http://mplus-fonts.osdn.jp/mplus-bitmap-fonts/) still appear garbled. Is there a way to get support for other encodings apart from the seven above choices?
