How to limit in real-time the number of characters in textarea with JavaScript?

I have a textarea in my form that should allow the user to enter a maximum of 300 characters. I would like to use JavaScript to set this up so that while the user is entering characters into the textarea they are seeing a countdown of how many characters more they are able to add before they hit the limit. Thanks.
