  • (2021-10-25) Pat MySecret: Nice, but I'm not a fan of context menu accessed counters. This requires a right click, going to the tab, and then a left click. There are others that do it easier.
  • (2021-08-24) Marie Frances: Inaccurate word count!
  • (2021-07-22) Mihaela Muntean: very easy to use but i think it need an extra feature: keyboart shortcut to activate it without the needing of using the mouse
  • (2021-06-24) Piltdown Superman: Using this for several months. In my weblog writing, I need an approximate number of words before I insert a graphic. This tool is very helpful for that. I was a bit bothered that there is no keyboard shortcut, but then, since the section to be counted needs to be highlighted, I'm holding the mouse anyway so the right-click and select part of the procedure is no problem. It works well in my experience on several Chromium-based browsers.
  • (2021-04-01) gembie: Very useful, even on Canva!
  • (2021-03-29) Avi P.: It was very easy to use! I loved how you just had to highlight your document and left click it and boom, the extension is right there, you click it and see all the words/characters. Totally recommend this to others, would use again.
  • (2021-03-26) Thenesse Cornelio: This is my first time using this great extension. It met my expectations! It's also very simple to use and flashes the necessary details only. When I checked the word count in Word-it's the same! I'll definitely use this from now on. It will help me in my writing.
  • (2020-12-07) Jeff Zealley: This tool is inaccurate. It often joins two words together which results in a word count that is less than how many words were really written. I compared the results from this program to Google Docs and Word and found out this program has some serious flaws.
  • (2020-11-29) rhubarbs: it does exactly what it says it does, it counts words, characters and characters without spaces. i highly recommend this extension, it is very useful for writers as well.

  • (2020-01-26) Adam Miller: I just needed a quick and easy way to see if my students' submitted answers met the word count minimum, and this tool is perfect. I used to cut and paste the answers into Word to accomplish this count, but now I can do everything in the browser. Thanks so much for this simple, time-saving extension.

  • (2019-05-28) Van Nguy: Light and work flawlessly!
  • (2019-05-15) Александр Величко: Рабочее расширение! Чётко считает количество: знаков без пробелов, слов, знаков с пробелами. Одинаково хорошо подсчитывает знаки как на русском, так и на английском. Никаких лишних наворотов - она просто тут же выдаёт подсчитанный текст. Просто выделяешь текст - клацаешь правой кнопкой мыши - выбираешь "Count this words" - появляется маленькое окошко по центру экрана с данными на английском, которое не исчезает пока не нажмёшь на крестик в углу.

  • (2020-08-06, v:0.11) Black Fin: ChromeOS vs Windows
    Hello everyone, I've noticed some people saying they have issues with the extension. I just installed this in the past few days on a few computers. It worked simply and perfectly on Windows 10 Chrome browser, but when I tried to install it on ChromeOS I'm also getting a package invalid error. I don't know if Chomebooks are support, or if someone else can say if they're on a chromebook as well. I'm sure this will help the developer. Which, many thanks by the way. Neat little extension on windows! :)

    Hey there, The extension works great on regular sites, but it does not work when selecting text within a google doc document. Are you planning to extend the functionality to Google Docs as well?
  • (2019-07-03, v:0.11) Rajasekharan N.: Rename the file wordcount.png to wordCount.png (with a capital C)
    Unable to install the extension from the Chrome Store due to a file named wrongly in the code. Either rename the file wordcount.png to wordCount.png (with a capital C) or change the code accordingly to have the correct name of the file. I had to download the extension locally and do it offline to get it installed.
