GhostText has become an essential part of my daily work routine. I mainly use it for making HTML changes in our (limited) CMS. This extension helps me overcome those limitations effectively. Highly recommended! Feature request: With Manifest V2 being deprecated soon, this extension might stop working. Are there any plans to support manifest V3 in the near future?

I use it with Emacs, the best way is to assign a keystroke to it at chrome://extensions/shortcuts
