Summary

Enables Edge to display colored emojis even if your OS does not support it. Replaces the default emojis with Twemoji (Twitter emoji library).

Twemoji (v14.0 as of this publishing) adheres to the Unicode 14.0 spec and supports the Emoji 14.0 spec. More Twemoji info here:

Quick background: I use a Windows 7 machine where color emojis are not supported. I used several other extensions but noticed that they were rather old and did not support newer emojis. I couldn't find an updated one so I decided to create my own. Works great on my machine, so hopefully it also works correctly on yours.

Limitations:

  • Only replaces emojis that are already available during the initial page load. Emojis added after via ajax, lazy-loading or other scripts will not be affected.
  • Only works if browser is connected to the internet. It pulls emoji data from the internet, so replacement emojis may not appear if you're offline.

Avoid. Dramatically slows down YouTube page loading and causes pages to refresh when opening a YouTube video. This results in the first few seconds of the video playing, then the page reloading, and the video playing from the start again. This needs to be patched. Otherwise works as described, but currently not recommended.
