Tracking words and characters is important, for example, when online questionnaires require a maximum or minimum number of characters for answers. Programs like Microsoft Word or Libre Office offer the same features, but accessing functions from the browser on a website may be more convenient for PCs without text editing software. Websites may also offer more features such as line count or paragraphs. Here are ten free options for counting characters and words without installing anything on your PC.
