Emoji Helper

An Emoji cheat sheet extension for Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Built because I like spamming my coworkers with 🍄 🐷 🚀 🐌 but fortunately have more important things to keep in mind than the name for 🗿

Visit http://johannhof.github.io/emoji-helper for download links from the official stores.
