A while back I needed to count the number 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!
