    Rocket vs WinCompose opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    wincompose implements a compose key, allowing access to a vast range of input including non-US characters, math and other Unicode symbols, etc.

    Rocket is a tool for inserting small emoji only. It covers a minuscule fraction of what WinCompose does, and can't provide even close to the same functionality.
