This extension turns your EN keyboard with QWERTY layout into JP one with QWERTY JIS layout. You can type in Japanese without installing an additional language in your system.

Usage: "Alt+X" to activate/deactivate the extension. "Alt+Z" to change the mode (hiragana <-> katakana).

Examples: "qwerty" -> "たていすかん". "Shift + <'>" -> "ろ". "Shift + <key>" will insert small letters when possible, e.g. "Shift + 3" -> "ぁ".

Notes: *No Kanji support. **Works fine in text-area/some editable elements. ***Please note that this version is under development, so reporting bugs is appreciated.
