A while back I needed to count the characters of a piece of text that I needed to use as an email template within Sales Force. Unfortunately, I could not think of a way to do so on my macbook quickly; I turned to the Internet.
There were a couple of tools out there, but none of them met my standards and since I am a web designer I thought: why not do it myself? And... here is the result, hope it helps out
