- (2020-01-03) Hiranga Goonawardena: not working as expected - 2019
- (2019-01-29) Arkylie: Overall design simple and useful, but it counts double-dashes (my replacement for the em-dash while writing online) as "words," e.g. counting 503 for a document I know to be 500 even. Also, it says it "can read and change site data," and I have to wonder why a word-count utility would need access to CHANGE site data. I'm gonna keep looking.
- (2017-09-26) Nicholas Schwankl: Added word count everywhere I wanted it. Updates a little slow, but better than everything else.
- (2016-07-26) Philip Stancil: Amazing! Literally all I have to do is highlight the text in question and it displays the word count in the extensions bar.
- (2016-06-25) Tyler Spam: never worked as it was supposed to
- (2015-09-07) Melody Liu: YES! Just what I was looking for; a non-intrusive extension to automatically give me an accurate word count when I need it. Love it!
