Wow, cool. Works great for things like "sun" and "snow" and "smile." 🙌

It would be nice if you could select and copy a character without it popping up the larger version of that character. And once you close that interstitial, it would be nice not to lose your place on the page. Great stuff!

You are busting a lot of animation frames which makes the keyboard input janky. Chrome CPU profiler showed each a few event handlers taking ~250ms each. Try splitting this work into smaller chunks or using a Web Worker.
