Emoji Cheatsheet is a free Firefox plugin to find and use emoji codes on popular sites like Twitter, Github, Basecamp, etc. Many of the social networks (say Google+, Facebook, etc.) come with the native feature to use emoji while posting a status or chatting with friends. However, there are also other sites where users want to use emoji, but those websites don’t offer this emoji feature. Using this Firefox plugin makes it easy as well as possible to use emoji on other websites. It does so by generating the Unicode of emoji which you can paste on any of the supported sites. It provides a pop-up where you can find the emoji and click on any emoji to access its Unicode.
Apart from showing the Unicode of a particular emoji, it also shows the name of that emoji. So, you can also search for an Emoji by its name. Moreover, you can also enable its option to directly copy the image (emoji) to paste in an email, document, or any other place.
In the screenshot above, you can see the pop-up of this Firefox plugin where it provides the emoji and the Unicode of an emoji copied by me. Unicode copied on the clipboard can be used on different web browser also.
