Since the last update there have been further improvements and adjustments and the calculator is now very lightweight and blazing fast.

Time has also been spent to keep the compatibility as wide as possible to have even older web browsers supported so that you can count characters and words even if you're using an older device.

The size of the font has also been reduced to make it easier to work with longer texts.

Online Character Count Tool

A while back I needed to count the amount of letters that a piece of text in an email template had (to avoid passing any character limits). Unfortunately, I could not think of a quick way to do so on my macbook and I therefore 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 help others along the way? And... here is the result, hope it helps out!

What is this?

Character Count Online is a free online character and word counting tool.
All results are immediately shown and it is ridiculously easy to use and of course, the service is completely free.

How is it used?

You can copy and paste your text with the characters to count in the text area above, or you can type your characters and words into the text area. The counter will be updated instantly, displaying the amount of characters, words, sentences, paragraphs and whitespace in your text, not to mention that the keyword density (which you can configure from the options menu) is also displayed.

Which devices does the counter work on?

Character Count Online works on absolutely any device.

No matter if you have a mobile phone, computer, console or tablet the counter will work perfectly!
