Image from store Word Counter - counts what you type
Description from store Shows a count of words and characters as you type. Or select some text on a webpage to see the count of words, characters and estimated reading time. Or tap on the extension button to open a window to write in. (Supports markdown formatting too!) *Doesn't count in password or number input fields. ----------------- Update 13 Feb 2020: New: App window to write longer text, with word count, word limits, markdown support, and more... Update 27 Dec 2019: New: Show estimated reading time for text. Reading time is calculated based on a reading speed of 200 words per minute. Update 13 Nov 2018: 1. Removed permission for reading clipboard. Planned feature has been cancelled, so don't need this permission anymore. 2. Made word count non-selectable, so it doesn't get included when doing select all (Ctrl/Cmd + A) on a webpage. ------- Privacy Policy: https://c306.net/apps/privacy/word-counter/

  • (2020-03-04) Alexandru Ion: When I write articles on my blog editor it automatically adds "WordsCharactersReading time". Each time I edit my article it adds that specific text. Except this, the app works perfectly and it's the best one for this specific task.
  • (2019-12-03) Przemys┼éaw Janikowski: Not only does it calculate almost exactly as Word does (which was my specific need), but it is unbelievably unobtrusive (no need to click anything after the highlight) and does not break down with languages other than English. I'm completely satisfied.
  • (2019-03-10) b. l.: An excellent extension. Stays out of the way until you need it, and takes up no more space than absolutely necessary when in use.
  • (2018-10-12) Younus: Best
