Is there a way to insert emoji in Chrome efficiently? There are some extensions, but they mostly look like spyware (you can enter emoji, but we'll spy on your browsing history). Do you know a reliable extension or some other way to do it?
In Windows 10 build 1809 there is now the "Emoji" context menu item. It can be brought up by either from the context menu or by Win+.
The context menu appears in any editable field in any application.
I ended up using https://browsernative.com/emoji/ as a bookmark. It's simple enough. Although I'd prefer having a overlay popup window that would insert the emoji directly to the form. I'm actually thinking about creating such extension myself. Opensource, so anyone can see that I don't collect personal information of any kind.
I also found
chrome://flags/#enable-emoji-context-menu which I turned on but the context menu did not appear.
