In this article, I have compiled a list of 3 free word counter Firefox Add Ons. These Firefox extensions will simply count the number of words, characters, letters, etc in the text selected by you. Some advanced Firefox extensions will even let you know the number of white spaces, sentences, readability score, level, and many other useful information. These character counter extensions are super easy to use; just download them and start counting characters in a text selected by you. If you are a Google Chrome user then you can check out these Chrome extensions to count a number of words and characters of selected text.
To automatically count the characters of selected text, I will use following Firefox extensions: Word Count Tool, Characters Count, and Count Word Professional.
