ReplaceR replaces existing words on web pages with new words. Make 'Hell' become 'Heck' or 'Game of Thrones' become 'SPOILER ALERT'.
ReplaceR is a Google Chrome extension that lets you take specific words that show up in your Google Chrome browser and replace them with new words. For example, you can take the word "Hell" and make it look like "Heck". Why would you want to do that? 1. Get warnings about SPOILERS! Let's say you watch George R.R. Martin's smash hit Game of Thrones on HBO. You can Enter 'GoT' and 'Game of Thrones' into ReplaceR and have it read back "SPOILERS!" so that you have a fighting chance to avoid reading what happens to Khaleesi next. 2. Don't like curse words? Maybe certain words trigger you? Maybe you don't like curse words. You can replace those filthy words with ***** or different words. Or perhaps certain words just make you cringe... Same idea! You can swap those words out for something more acceptable to you. 3. Correct Capitalization You can use ReplaceR to change the capitalization of words. For example, you can change eSports to always show as Esports. How to use ReplaceR: Add a Word: 1. Right click on the ReplaceR icon and select options. 2. Add a word to replace and a word to replace the word with. 3. Click Submit. Note: You will need to refresh your pages for ReplaceR to start doing it's job. Delete a Replacement: 1. Right click on the ReplaceR icon and select options. 2. Find the word you want to remove in the table. 3. Click the Delete button. Note: You will need to refresh your pages for ReplaceR to update.

- (2020-08-13) twitchy: I am a trans person and this application changes everything. I'm not allowed to legally change my name, and since I'm doing online school, I've had to read it on everything addressed to me as a student. I used this app to replace my dead name with my chosen name and I almost cried. Maybe It's not the response you'd expect from a simple extension, but this made a big difference to me and I'll be recommending it to all of my trans friends.

Could you add a feature to (re-)run the extension on request, please? I would like to be able to replace a bunch of text, that is loaded via XHR, after a page has fully loaded.
