A lightweight extension that makes any link selectable while [Alt], [Meta], or [Command] key is pressed.

LinkSuppressor enables an intuitive partial link selection by suppressing Chrome's "Drag & Drop Link" feature. All you have to do is selecting a link text with any of [Alt]/[Window]/[Command] key being pressed. Since this extension temporarily suppresses a single unwanted feature, any of the meta information associated with the original text won't be lost when you copy-and-paste into other rich-text editors. Usage: * Windows : Press [Alt] while selecting a link * Mac OS X: Press [Alt] or [Command] while selecting a link * Other : Press [Alt] or [Meta] while selecting a link Release Note: 1.0.4 * now works on windows / linux * added a hack for * adjust the timing when the first listener is added. 1.0.0 * built for mac testers

It's good but please remove the requirement of holding down a key

Been using it for a while now, saves a lot of time not having to copy more than I need and instead I just hold Alt and select the text I want. Thanks for the awesome extension!

A sign of good code is its longevity. The last time the expansion was updated in 2014. It's now 2018 and it's still working. To highlight the link with the mouse, you need to hold down the ALT key. This is written in the description.
