  • (2017-08-24, v:1.2) Laurie-Ève Pion: Adding numbers of caracters
    Hi! I'd like to suggest to add the numbers of caracters with and without spaces in the extension. It would be very useful for all the web marketers out there! Thank you!
  • (2015-11-10, v:1.2) Stephen Harland: Doesn't work
    Simply doesn't work.
  • (2015-03-28, v:1.2) Amanda Lohiser: Opening 5 count windows?
    I use this app extension the time for grading students' online paper submissions. It's a great tool. However, something strange started happening today. When I highlight and right-click to view the word count, I get FIVE word count windows instead of one. I have to close them all by clicking the Xs one-by-one - click, click, click, click, click. This is time consuming and annoying - not to mention how I used to like the fact that I could count, say, three paragraphs and then close through the three boxes in succession and see the students' word count for all three paragraphs. Help! What is going on?
  • (2014-12-28, v:1.2) Andrew Denny: Pop-up ad windows
    If I leave Chrome unattended a while, a nasty, spammy advertising tab pops up. I'm trying to track down the origin. It's not a virus or other malware, according to virus scans on McAfee. I'm suspecting something unwanted in various Chrome extensions, and have been disabling them one by one. Yours is the last that's left, and the problem is STILL happening! Can you cross your heart and say Word Count isn't the cause? Thanks
  • (2014-10-21, v:1.2) Maddison Rose: Wordcount off?
    When I compare the wordcount this tool gives me with the wordcount given by other tools, the numbers are different. Do you know the reason for this discrepancy?
  • (2014-10-17, v:1.2) Ania Bukowski: More words
    It would be nice if this feature counted more than 2k words.
  • (2014-04-28, v:1.2) Upgrade for translators
    Hi Peter, your app work fine but people like me need a fast way to evaluate word count about one hundred pages for example. Would be nice to have a dynamic word counter ... the counter increase automatically making the selection ... more i drag the selection more the counter increase ... When the selection is complete i press a key like ctrl-d and the count is added to a cumulative var that will show me the total word number at the end of 100 or more selections on to many pages. Could be fine. for many people. See you and tkx a lot! Andrea

    You should add a character count as well. It would make it perfect really.
