Description from store What is Word Replacer? Word Replacer is a simple extension inspired by the popular 'Cloud to Butt'. It does much more than that, allowing you to create entire lists of replacements and customize them to your tastes. WORD REPLACER HAS RECENTLY UNDERGONE A HUGE UPDATE. And if you didn't like it before, you should give it a second try now. Many annoyances don't exist anymore, and the extension is much more powerful. What is Word Replacer useful for? That depends on you. I initially made the extension for myself, but the increasing number of reviews suggesting novel uses for Word Replacer may give you some insight. Personally, I'd recommend starting with popular replacements such as the XKCD (http://xkcd.com/) ones. They make surfing the web more fun, even more so when you're not expecting them! How do I use it? Detailed instructions can be read from the settings page. Please read carefully the user manual and the about page if there is anything that's not intuitive enough. And if it isn't, please tell me so that I can make it better.

Latest reviews

  • (2021-11-10) Red Velvet Edge Muffin: Perfect for name changes on work/school documents. Unhappy with your legal name or name presented to you online? Use this and you can see your correct name.
  • (2021-09-14) Tiến Phát Nguyễn Hải: great!!
  • (2021-09-08) Chance Finley: I liked this product to be funny, however had to disable it due to it causing issues with StackOverflowTeams when asking a question. It would make the entire screen act as though it was not editable
  • (2021-09-08) 碇天理: Does not work on modern Reddit. It changes the words for a while but reverts back to the original. I'm forced to use old Reddit because of this.
  • (2021-08-31) 碇天理: IMPORTATION DOES NOT WORK! Useless when creating backups! Unfortunate that I have made so many replacements.
  • (2021-08-31) Fluue: Does what it says.
  • (2021-08-14) Camille Sam-Long: It doesn't work I tried everything but nothing change
  • (2021-07-28) Yeimmy Sanchez: excelente
  • (2021-07-19) Ki Zhang: It seems sometime the replacing happens before the page fully loaded. So the new loaded text are not replaced. So some of the words loaded after the replacement are not replaced.
  • (2021-05-28) Zekie: Backspace makes the typing automatically go back to the start but otherwise it's ok
  • (2021-05-28) w8sj1s wjqsjiwi: it doesent work
  • (2021-04-22) Liang: Looking forward to following function: 1. Whitelist/blacklist on chosen websites. 2. Replace across html tag such as: replace "snoop<em>dog</em>" with "little<em>cat</em>" and "snoop<b>dog</b>" with "little<b>cat</b>"
  • (2021-04-20) scoot: works well for me! unlike other extensions this one doesn't bug out on the images on google images. good work <3
  • (2021-04-01) Makenzie NotFound: i couldnt even open it. the tab wouldnt open
  • (2021-03-22) Jordan Lund: Doesn't seem to work anymore. You can add words or phrases to replace and you can enable them, but the settings don't save and no replacements are made. It looks like whatever code was exploited to make this work has been patched.
  • (2021-03-08) Benjamin Dionysus: As many others have said, under certain common circumstances (e.g., writing a facebook post) using this extension causes the cursor to jump to the start of the link at seemingly random intervals, making it impossible to type.
  • (2021-02-18) Frank Collingwood: Crippled input boxes. Cursor jumps around when it's enable, leading to garbled input.
  • (2021-02-01) Riley McConnell: Ever since installing this extension I've had a weird problem with text input fields. The cursor occasionally jumps back to the beginning of words like "This" and "Why" even when Word Replacer II is not supposed to be replacing words or a site. I've had to disable it completely.
  • (2021-01-08) Tara: This just made my day. Thank you!!
  • (2021-01-01) Eric Huang: 增加 wording 後,要按下 "Apply to selected" 才會生效。有點不太順手,但功能沒問題.
  • (2020-12-31) brooke kiernan: i cant find the manual
  • (2020-12-30) Matt Winans: Had to uninstall because it makes cursor jump to the beginning of text type on multi-byte text inputs. Examples are Google Sheets formulas, Discord chat, and also portions of Facebook, e.g. https://www.facebook.com/events/birthdays
  • (2020-11-25) Géza Kiss: Perfect! Does exactly what it promises. You can export and import your rules, thus it enables you not just to store them, but also to create many rules e.g. by a script. (You can e.g. transliterate Arabic letters to Latin letters by inserting a Buckwalter transliteration table in the expected format.)
  • (2020-11-17) DeathByBunnies: This extension has been pretty great! One feature it's currently lacking that would really help would be a way to have certain replacements only happen on certain web domains. A few times I've wanted to replace a word when reading a translated story, but not wanted that word to be translated elsewhere.
  • (2020-11-15) Budyanto Nurhalim: Would be a five star considering the features, but sadly it makes some site load extremely slowly. So I've since used ReplaceR instead, which although has fewer features, but works as intended and does not slow down any website
  • (2020-11-12) Lily Wilkerson: This worked solidly for me for months until recently, when it stopped working on almost every website I visited. There hasn't been any updates in months, so it's likely a Chrome issue, so your mileage may vary. But for the months it worked, it was very consistent and the customization options were very nice.
  • (2020-10-09) T L: I feel bad leaving this review because I have had this extension for a long time now. But sometimes in 2020 it started messing up certain sites. On sites like Facebook I can't type anything because the letters move all over the place. For example if I type "Mary had a little lam, its fleece was white as snow", it would end up "ryhad a little Ma mb it's white as snow! fleecewas" Not sure what is going on but its unusable now.
  • (2020-09-17) Will Be: Don't know if it changed since people left reviews but The UI is super easy and it works! I wish there was a 'Don't replace if part of a word' button on the simple replacement mode though.
  • (2020-09-08) Kimberly J. Ortega: Works pretty fast, no noticeable delay and it even supports RegEx rules. Honestly I couldn't ask for more
  • (2020-08-28) Poppy TheDogOfWonders: Pretty good! But it's kinda finiky. I had to uninstall it and then reinstall it to get it to work, my advice is don't change any of the settings, just use the thing/column/commands on the left, worked for me.
  • (2020-08-15) Kai Reggelsen: It works perfectly, but it does mess up stuff sometimes in some text fields, such as moving the cursor to the beginning when I press backspace.
  • (2020-07-22) Pixelsplasher Dotcom: It could improve by providing real-time text replacement. At present, it could only replace text at the initial page load but will not replace text loaded later during user interaction such as those loaded asynchronously. In future versions, there could be the option to group text entries by webpage or domain and have each group take effect only within those websites.
  • (2020-07-07) Thou Art Cerastes: The only problem I had is that it glitched out my twitter scrolling when I had bee movie replaced with the bee movies entire script, which is kind of on me. Wonderful piece of software and has confused and amused many people I've sent out of context screenshots of the effects to
  • (2020-07-06) FB3 Network: Keeps saying "Unrecognized format!" and nothing else. What a waste of time this was
  • (2020-07-03) burningflag78: 1000개 정도 되니 속도가 매우 느려져요. 개선 방법 없나요? 아니면, a/b 두 개로 나눠서 선택 할수 있으면 좋을 것 같아요. all(heavy) or light
  • (2020-04-04) NOMS NOMS: Using it to replace the words "length" and "smirks" on Wattpad because people love using those nasty words
  • (2020-03-20) Loïc Simon: Works prefectly, BUT creates a major bug with somes sites using autocompletion schemes (Google Sheets, Facebook Messenger) causing the cursor to be constantly moved back at the beginning of the text field. Really annoying.
  • (2020-02-23) oimate: great for schools
  • (2020-02-04) Oleksander Dudar: It brakes certain pages. For example, I can’t use Google Image Search :(
  • (2019-12-02) Yogok Yos: idea is neat but this kind of extension does not allow per website basis? if you have 1 word replacement for 1 site while another word for another site, this extension can't do that. it'll apply both words for both site.
  • (2019-11-28) Durd Lurd: Absolutely terrible does not work would not reccomened
  • (2019-10-11) Mort OOPz: Does exactly what it says on the tin. My only request is to be able to enable/disable the extension based on url whitelists/blacklist (i.e. I basically only want it to run on one site). That said the logical progression is to be able to group replacements and enable/disable the groups independently based on the url, not something I'd use but I think many would.
  • (2019-10-02) Jason: Doesn't appear to work any longer
  • (2019-08-10) PastelxPetal: I was able to change my dead name to my new name. THANK YOU I LOVE THIS
  • (2019-07-06) Aleksandr Agafonov: Запускается, настраивается, но не заменяет слова - ни русский, ни английский.
  • (2019-07-05) Hans Thieme: I made a short script that allows you to export your words, clean them up in python, and import them back in. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1EwM_jy8pazRZfF5Ri-cN4J_jeHiVO9bZB_qGC0-04bA/edit?usp=sharing
  • (2019-06-07) PinkAxolotl: Works like a charm but sometimes too well. Ask it to change 'mom' to 'mum' and i'll also find it changing words like moment and momentum in mument and mumentum. None of the different settings it allows me to give to a word changes this. It either changes all or changes nothing.
  • (2019-05-17) Adam Filinovich: While a nice idea, this well below the quality of most of the other extensions that do the same thing. It completely ruins text fields.
  • (2019-04-18) Sequoia E.: Works great, even on "instant chat" sites like Discord and "endless scrolling" sites like Twitter! You can use it to increase your reading speed by removing all the vowels from most words, make reading boring texts more fun by replacing keywords with funny stuff, or make difficult texts in a foreign language easier by replacing all the hard words with words you already know. However when I tried backing up and then importing a list, it didn't work. Also, as everyone else says, it's a pain that the little "page bar" gets in the way (I have to zoom in and out the page to make it move so I can see what I've typed there), and that if you make one new entry too far without having saved it deletes all that you've typed. And I'd really like a "bulk import" option that could be created out of a more simple comma-separated list or something like that, for use with wordlists I've made with other add-ons.

    Hello, I would like to know if the extension is gonna be available on ipad or phone. Because that could be really usefull! Thank you
  • (2021-06-03, v:2.0.10) Paul Thompson: Cursor Issues - You really need to fix this!!
    As many others have described, when inputting text on certain sites, the cursor will jump to the beginning of a word or sentence. Use to just happen on my Mac (latest Chrome browser) when I typed a capital letter but now happens with almost every word I type (posts and comments on Facebook). Please fix this as I love being able to filter out profanity from the social media experience.
  • (2021-05-13, v:2.0.10) Allie Ginter-Blakely: Cursor jumping problem with Facebook
    When I try to type up a post or comment on Facebook, the typing cursor will jump to the left, typically when I am 1-3 letters into a word, when I use the spacebar, or the pop-up menu for suggested tags pops up.

    While writing a message, pressing Backspace moves cursor back to the start of the line.
  • (2020-12-01, v:2.0.10) Hugo: Replacement and Beep
    Hello Friend, Your extension is very good! Please, in addition to replacing, I need it to beep to hear when it finds the word. You can do it? I wait your answer, Thanks, Hugo
  • (2020-09-17, v:2.0.10) Julie Gagnon: Doesn't always work with the new Facebook
    Hi, just wondering if this can be fixed for Facebook's new look? Sometimes when I click on a "read more" link the new text isn't filtered, and sometimes even posts directly in my feed don't show up as filtered. This extension is a lifesaver and I depend on it a lot!
  • (2020-07-17, v:2.0.10) T K: A cursor jumps back to beginning of the line when input mode is multi-byte such as Japanese.
    Hi! This is the great extension and really useful when running quick demonstration! I just found the input cursor jumps back to beginning of the line when input mode of text area is in multi-byte/Japanese. Please see the 15 sec video recording here in my tweet. https://twitter.com/takarocks_ja/status/1284136017382068230?s=20

  • (2020-06-06, v:2.0.10) James House: Incredibly slow
    Right now this extension is unusable for me, websites like amazon, youtube, etc slow to a crawl whenever I have it enabled. The websites will freeze and become unresponsive while the extension does its changes while using a lot of CPU in the process.
  • (2020-04-15, v:2.0.10) Jon Valvatne: Input field values are not replaced
    When a web page has HTML on the form <input value="x">, the x is not replaced. You probably don't want to replace input typed by the user, but input boxes with values that are present upon page load are used by all sorts of sites to render content, so you end up missing a lot of replacements this way. I suppose it could/should be a user-controlled option to avoid messing with actual workflows that involve loading pre-filled forms or similar.
  • (2020-03-11, v:2.0.10) Elizabeth Fox: Functions in Sheets
    In Google Sheets, if I add a function like SUM, the cursor goes over to the left and I can't enter the variables - the cursor won't stay inside the parens. I have to disable Word Replacer to get functions to work.
  • (2020-01-28, v:2.0.10) Paul Windmill: Unrequested changes
    In Google Chrome, standard forms on the web, web pages themselves and search results are changing words e.g. the to teh, that to dat, I to me, known to non - and others. In addition TEMP appears, apparently randomly, in otherwise normal text. I have not used your word replacer and don't know what has caused the problem; which only started about 2 weeks ago. I have rried re-installing Google Chrome and going back to a previous state in Windows 10 but the problem persists. Please help! Paul [email protected]
  • (2019-12-10, v:2.0.10) Dan Green: Doesn't replace words in mouseover text.
    Hi...this is a nice tool. I've been using it on Famzoo to correct the company's incorrect usage of "debit" and "credit". In the accounting world, a "debit" is an increase in assets, and a "credit" is a decrease in assets. Famzoo, however, adopted the slang usage of "debit" as a subtraction and "credit" as an addition. So I use your tool to swap the website's incorrect usage of the terms so it won't confuse my kids. However, the incorrect language lingers in the mouseover text. How do I swap the terms in the mouseover text? It is called with many statements like the following: <div class="aicons"> <a class="aicon aicon-credit " href="javascript:fzCreditAcct(0,219941001,0);" title="Credit this account"><img src="../famzoo2103/trunk/images/iconnull.gif" width="14" height="14"></a> <a class="aicon aicon-debit " href="javascript:fzDebitAcct(0,219941001,0);" title="Debit this account"><img src="../famzoo2103/trunk/images/iconnull.gif" width="14" height="14"></a></div>
  • (2019-11-22, v:2.0.10) BlewTooth: Word Replacer II breaks using certain regular expressions
    I can reliably cause the plugin to not replace any found matches using the following sample RegExps: 1.)/[lr]/gi 2a.)/n(?=[aeiou])/gi 2b.)/n(?=(a|e|i|o|u))/gi 2c.)/n(?=a|e|i|o|u)/gi The validity of the RegExps was tested on regexr.com, and the individual and coupled functionality of the RegExps was tested on several websites, such as searches performed on google.com, articles on wikipedia.com, and stackoverflow.com All of RegExps had their replacement type set to RegEx and their letter case set to maintain. RegExp 1 worked by itself and replaced the matches with a single letter. Any variations of RegExp 2 did not work and their matches were supposed to be replaced with two letters. When RegExp 1 was coupled with RegExp 2, neither of them replaced their expected matches, however, there was one exception that was noticed for which RegExp 1 correctly replaced characters in Wikipedia article titles but RegExp 2 did not.

    Substitutions for strings containing emoji to change to regular character or other emoji are not applied at all.
  • (2019-06-10, v:2.0.10) Oleg Popov: Saving works incorrectly
    A list on the left side can be saved only by the button 'Apply to selected'. So my situation is: 1) I've created a 3-pages list, 2) decided to look at the first page and click on the paginator 3) I lose 3 pages of pairs. Expected: list saved automatically after each pair addition, so any action (closing of the window too) do not lead to loss of all the list. Observed: Use of paginator and closing of window lead to loss of all list if the button 'Apply to selected' wasn't pressed.
  • (2019-03-23, v:2.0.10) Clom Gorb: It only works when I hit the Word Replacer ii icon at the top
    It doesn't change the words until I hit the Word Replacer ii icon at the top toolbar. It does change them after I hit the button, but, it's useless if it doesn't work on it's own.
