TL;DR: 55 years ago a spacecraft with Yury Gagarin aboard was launched into space! And oh, yes, we just've launched word count feature and switched our server to secure connection.
This small feature sometimes may turn out pretty useful. Now we count words and some other statistics in your document and show it in the log pane. We use texcount utility which basically makes a simple parsing of the source code. It should work fine for straightforward documents where text is not widely generated by custom macros. Please refer to texcount docs for the details of counting and tuning.
Until today we've been using secure connections for the most sensitive requests like authentication. Now we have completely switched to secure protocol. If you have an open session, you need to sign in again.
