I've tried to be responsive to user requests, and am happy to announce a new version: New features are: 1) option to replace the entire word with kanji instead of just the first letter, 2) easier editing of the profiles (the files the program uses to decide what words should be replaced with what kanji), 3) new options for how and when the program runs - for example, an always on mode, and 4) compatibility with Firefox 3.
