I've been writing a lot in Google Docs, and wanted a real-time word count and milestone markers. So I built a little extension. Maybe you'll find it useful too!

Feature request: Flesch-Kincaid scoring. Being able to tell on the fly if my word length / sentence length / grade level is over the head of my reader would be super helpful.

Feature request - ability to add milestone markers at other intervals (100, 200, 300 words) for shorter content pieces.

@daviswbaer @yogitakhatri You can select all the content in google docs with Ctrl+A and then can perform a word tally by using Ctrl+Shift+C. Not saying that the tool is not handy. It definitely is!!
