Guessed 31, and over half of those were just from typing in combinations of letters that sounded promising.

I realize that it's very strange that "car" and "donc" don't make the top 100...

These words are actually not used a lot in everyday French, we would say "parce que" instead of "car". "Car" would be like saying "for" instead of "because" in English

"une chose" would normally be considered two words, as would "le temps", "un peu", etc.

Drastically different than the English 100 words with words people don't actually use that frequently.

My main complain about this is that it should be like the English quiz: conjugations should count as the same word (so: est, suis, es, était, sont, été, êtes,... -> être ; a, avez, ont, as,... -> avoir ; etc.)

Yes! Should just be the infinitive of any verb which appears..

In order to keep track of your guesses, it would be helpful to have the kind of word (pronoun, verb, ...) indicated by differen background colours. Alternatively, it could be a new feature that those colours appear at least once the word is correctly guessed.

91 as a French speaker, got lucky with some but really interesting. I missed "était", "ici", "sais", "dit", "dire", "très", "merci", "aussi" and "voir", "merci" probably is here because of French Canadian lol

Seriously it was a really interesting quiz
