  • (2019-08-15) Ava Gates: This works pretty well! I kinda wish the context menu would open upward if opening downward would cause it to go off-screen.
  • (2019-06-02) hamza mostakim: Thankssss so much ♥♥♥
  • (2019-05-16) DeepakKumar Yadav: wish the smileys where slightly more bigger in size. I use it on Stash/Bitbucket/Jira - and the smileys look very small
  • (2019-03-15) Or Schiro: Really cool! 👍🙂
  • (2018-03-23) Rahul G: the extension is great.. would be great if you can make it a bit more user friendly - once i enter :laugh i want to scroll through the emojis with arrow keys without using my mouse .. probably if i press Tab key, it would allow me to scroll using arrows . please do it .. definitely will spread the word about the extension either way .
  • (2018-01-25) have always tried multiple emoji apps and have never been satisfied with any. I have tried the native emoji palette on Mac, but have found it to be slow at times. Rocket for Mac wasn't up to the mark either. Smiley Caret is definitely fast. Works only on Google Chrome, but that's okay.

  • (2020-05-11, v:1.1.1) Burak Garcı: incompatible website
    Hi, thanks for the effort on this great extension. I've been using the extension since long time on wolflive.com social app, they've updated their web site and extension is not working anymore. I would really appreciated if you could take a look. Thank you.
  • (2020-04-26, v:1.1.1) Michael: Is there a way to capture the arrow keys?
    I'm sure like most people, I installed this extension after using slack's colon-access to emojis too much at work. The whole point of the colon command is to not have to take my hands off the keyboard to type an emoji - is there a way you could get your context menu to capture the up and down arrow keys?
  • (2019-01-14, v:1.1.1) Popup not completely visible when text field is at bottom of screen
    If the text field is at the bottom of the screen the emoj popup is not completely visible. The major part of the popup is below the window boundary.
  • (2018-06-24, v:1.1.1) Michele Mazzacano: Blacklist/Whitelist
    Hi, can you add the "blacklist" / "whitelist"? Some website has got an internal script to replace text to emoji. For this reason, I need to add this website in a blacklist. Thank for all.
  • (2018-01-25, v:1.0) Bikram Agarwal: Rectangle boxes.
    Using this on Windows 7 desktop, Chrome Version 63.0.3239.132 (Official Build) (64-bit). I am getting rectangular boxes instead of emojis. A few codes that are getting converted are getting converted into emoticons and not emojis.
