A Free Browser Word Count Add-in for Firefox

Have you ever needed to count quantity of the words on a web-page? Have you ever solved this task by copy/pasting the content into word processor and running statistic tool from there? And what if there is a free browser add-in capable of providing the statistics in the browser window?

Firefox boasts to be one of the most extensible browsers and even web humor proofs this. Today I’m reviewing a free word count Firefox add-in called Word Count Plus. It may be of a great benefit to you, so let’s get started.

Step 1. Install a Firefox browser.

Step 2. Install Word Count Plus add-in.

Visit Word Count Plus webpage, then click Install version 1.3.0 button (the version may actually differ).

Summary

Pros: 1) free; 2) flexible word count (you can count words in a first and the last paragraphs of the page with no copy/pasting); 3) supports addition and undoing the last action.

Contras: 1) a browser add-in (to count the words, you need to open a browser); 2) no bulk file processing (counting statistics in 10 files becomes a time-consuming task); 3) not full statistics (no count of alt tags, page title and keywords, as they are coded in fact).

A good tool for ad hoc use when you need to count quantity of the words or characters on the web page. Occasional word counters should thank Sam Waters, who built this fine app.

But professionals who need an accurate and full word count statistics in the html files, including the page title and alt tags text, should pay their attention to a professional word count software.
