Does anyone know of a word count
extension plug-in add-on for Firefox 2.0 and better? I’d like to be able to highlight text on a web page and click on a button or right-click to get a word count pop up.
I found one that has been broken since Firefox 1.5 or so(*), and another that will only count words in TEXTAREAs, both of which are useless to me. On the Mac, I see potential for ThisService that I wouldn’t mind doing a little Perl Coding for. I just have to believe that someone’s already invented this particular wheel.
I would prefer a simple cross-platform web-based counter for this. If it ignores anything in a BLOCKQUOTE tag, all the better.

- Word Count tool for Movable Type
- Does Word Count affect your page rankings on the search engines?
(*) Nevermind. It’s working for me now (in Windows 2000), and is basically exactly what I was looking for. But if you know of anything else, I’ll take further suggestions. Thanks!
