Text replacer is a free Chrome extension to replace any word on a webpage with custom text. So, wherever that particular word is on that webpage, it will be replaced with the word/text entered by you. When you open another webpage containing the same text, it will show replacement word in that webpage also. This extension also lets you replace multiple words with different words and this makes it even more interesting. While some other similar extensions or tools can replace only one word on a webpage at a time, this extension supports replacement of multiple words.
Apart from replacing words of a webpage, you can also add color codes with your custom words. This will help you highlight the words entered by you. Replacing just one word on a webpage is actually funny as it changes the meaning of the entire text or paragraph. You may have a look at the screenshot below that justifies what I said. My colleague who wrote this article might not be too happy with this new avatar of his article ;)
