The difference is the rendering engines for the browser windows. We know Safari renders the character set differently than Chrome. But the Window UI elements (the tabs in Chrome) are okay. That's our biggest clue. The window UI elements are likely (emphasis on likely, I may not be correct here) all being rendered by the OS. So they get the full OS-level ...

You can use the Chrome extension Chromoji. It's a workaround that will replace emoji with embedded images in web pages.

There's also a list on my web site, that I just made. The list is viewable using a browser with emoji font support; this includes Safari.


Creator of Divvy here. I'm not sure why Divvy can't record this shortcut in the UI, but you can force Divvy to use this shortcut: Quit Divvy. Launch Terminal.app and paste this command, on one line, and press enter: defaults write com.mizage.direct.Divvy globalHotkey -dict keyCode 49 modifiers 4352 Also, paste this command, on one line, and press enter: ...


You can change the shortcut from System Preferences: Either three periods or an ellipsis character should work.

Open the Settings app. Tap on General. Tap on International. Tap on Keyboard. Tap on Add New Keyboard. Tap on Emoji. To switch to it on the keyboard, tap the globe icon between 123 and the microphone icon. I'd say that's easier than downloading a third-party anything on Android. Plus it was included already 2 years ago with iOS 5.

First action: Run AppleScript Here's the script: on run {input, parameters} tell application "Google Chrome" to activate tell application "System Events" to tell application ...


I think iWork has not yet been updated to support the Apple Color Emoji font. The vast majority of the special characters that are monochrome work fine - you might try the old way of specifying a font directly - Symbola has emoticons that might work until Keynote gets updated.


For font making the common OS X tools are FontLab, FontForge, and Glyphs. I understand the Color Emoji font uses png color bitmaps in two sizes in a proprietary “sbix” table, but have not yet seen info on how to make that table.


The button in the upper-right corner of Character Viewer was the culprit. If I summon Character Viewer and click it, Character Viewer shrinks: From then on, further presses of control+command+space summon the pop-up panel instead. As to how I got to the full Character Viewer, opening Character Viewer from the menu bar Input menu (which can be turned on ...


iOS shows the folder name when you search for an app that's stored within a folder as opposed to lying on the springboard main screens. Any chance someone punked you by making a clever named folder and placing these exact apps inside that folder? You can be sure your phone is fine by making a folder and controlling which apps are stored in that folder as ...


If they are using real Unicode emoji, you cannot see them without the Apple Color Emoji font, which only works in 10.7, or possibly by downloading and installing a black/white font that has them, like Symbola or Quivira. Unicode emoji were only standardized in October of 2010 and I think there are various apps which may not recognize them anyway. Here is ...

You can double tap the home button till the app switcher comes up at the bottom of the screen, then press and hold the messages app until the little red minus button appears at the top left of the app button. Press that to shut it down, then open it again. You could also hard reset the iPod by holding down the home and sleep button at the same time for ...


The following method is produced on OS X 10.9. The emoji definition file is at /usr/share/mecabra/zh/common/emoji.plist. You just replace it with an empty plist file (back it up first). The input method will not start again if you simply remove or rename the file. I use the following Python code: from plistlib import dump dump({}, open('emoji.plist', ...


The emojis sent by the iPhone are particular characters (cf Emoji on Wikipedia) If you see a smiley, it means that the android phones is probably converting the smiley into images on the phone directly but it seends only the text corresponding to the smiley to the reciever.
