Overview

Browser extension that allows for linking to arbitrary text on a page.

Update: Chrome now has a built-in feature ("Copy Link to Highlight" in the context menu) to copy text fragment links. The extension has an additional feature that allows you to also copy rich links. You can activate this feature in the options. This extension allows for easily creating a special link to the currently selected text on a page via the context menu. When opening such a special link, a compatible browser will scroll the selected text into view and highlight it. Usage instructions: • Select the text that you want to link to. • Right-click and choose "Copy Link to Selected Text" from the context menu. • If the link creation succeeded, the selected text will be briefly highlighted in yellow. • Paste your link wherever you want to share it. • 💡 Pro-tip: you can assign a keyboard shortcut to the copy action! 📖 Article: https://web.dev/text-fragments/ 🧩 Extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/link-to-text-fragment/pbcodcjpfjdpcineamnnmbkkmkdpajjg 🎬 Demo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5DmGqnzvBI For more information, see the Text Fragments specification (https://wicg.github.io/scroll-to-text-fragment/) where this feature is described. This extension is open-source (https://github.com/GoogleChromeLabs/link-to-text-fragment) and licensed under the terms of the Apache 2.0 license.

Hello thank you for this, can you just revert the latest updates about the font getting no color change, it was a better extension when it was readable, now we get the font of any color over a white background, the pale pink font color was a good contrast neutral color.

Please fix this, it used to work so well! The built in Google functionality only copies the link to highlight, which is where this extension is stuck currently.

"Link to Text Fragment" copying from the Brave browser and pasting it into the Brave URL does NOT work. "Link to Text Fragment" copying from the Brave browser and pasting it into Safari or Google Chrome works! I have not tested it on Firefox.
