Overview

Highlight text on websites with a simple right-click or keyboard shortcut. Saves highlights on your device.

Easiest way to highlight text on any webpage! Simply select text, then right click it to select the "Highlight" option. Alternatively, use the default keyboard shortcut 'Alt+H' (^H on Mac). All highlighted texts are saved so that your highlights are not lost when exiting a page! Simply re-opening that page will bring back all the highlights. NOTE: This does not work on very dynamic webpages like Facebook and most email clients. Support for these might be added in the future. ➪ View and copy all highlights on a page ➪ Copy all your highlights to your clipboard easily. ➪ Select existing highlights with a simple click to either delete them or to copy their content. ➪ Customize your highlight colors (and text color). ➪ Change the keyboard shortcut through Chrome settings at 'chrome://extensions/shortcuts'.
