Do you have to write the same text multiple times per day? For instance when replying to business emails, writing blog posts or commenting on them on the Internet. If that is the case you might have considered using tools that let you create text shortcuts that you can simply paste into your texts to speed up the writing? When writing email (or anything else) you can have one of two problems; either you’re addicted to ‘writng lyk ths’ or you just find it tiresome to write words like ‘sincerely’ or ‘have a great day’ when you’re swamped with work. Popchrom is a Chrome extension that lets you create abbreviations for words or phrases that you can expand to the actual word/ phrase when you hit Ctrl+Space bar.

The extension works on any page that has a text input field. The extension’s icon, a piece of popcorn (get it? popcorn: popchrom) appears in the URL bar wherever the extension is active. To set up words or phrases, go to the extension’s options and type in whatever you want to abbreviate a phrase or word with. It can be the first few letters of the word/phrase. You can also use select parameters like %day%, %month% etc. Visit the help tab in the extension’s options to see which parameters are supported.

The conversion itself is pretty straightforward. You write your message or post normally using the shortcut code. Once done you use the shortcut Ctrl-Space to turn all shortcuts on that particular page into the text that has been associated with them.

This works very well on most sites and forms on the Internet. The extension seems to be incompatible with some secure sites. It did not work at the Google Web Store nor Google Plus. It worked fine on the other hand on the Gmail web site when composing email.
