WikSort Chrome extension for English Wikipedia updated.

WikSort was updated to version 4.0 and is available for automatic or manual updating in the Chrome Web Store. Version 4.0 corrects compatibility problems with more recent versions of Chrome, and has a few improved appearance tweaks.

WikSort is a Chrome extension that sorts unique words in an Engliash Wikipedia article to a new tab. All words over five characters are alphabetically listed in a text box of the new page, with each entry followed by the usage count in the article. WikSort is useful when editing Wikipedia with Chrome because Chrome's spell checker can help quickly locate misspelled words and inconsistent spelling in an article from the word list generated.

The minimum number of characters in the word list can be changed via the extension options, ranging from 3 to 10. The font size of the word list can also be modified in extension options, from 25% to 400% of normal.
