Very grateful that this was disabled at least for now. It is a relief to be able to write edit notes without fighting the software. We take simple things that work for granted, and I would be remiss if I didn't say thanks for making the software functional, simply, again.

Again would you please just remove the counter. You can fix it offline. Thanks.
Yes I posted here since this appears to be where this was agreed to. Aklapper the problems with this counter are obvious and explained at depth at the phab thread just linked and at VPT.
Please roll this back. It breaks a basic function. I was unaware this was being considered and this is a perhaps-nice-to-have-gadget but not necessary. If re-implemented it should be an opt-in and not default. In my view this counter is clutter: I would never turn it on.
Am using chrome Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (64-bit) on a Mac. In addition to what is described above, when the content does starts disappearing behind the counter , if I try to delete and start typing again, the text is oddly repeated.

I just want to say that I fully support this. Related discussions that are kind of more about how search results are presented... here and links to phabs therein, namely T156493 and T23139 T40403 . Having the advanced search parameters contemplated here might be helpful towards wasting less time!
