Plain Text Linker
Item media 1 screenshot


Opens plain text URLs when you double-click on them.

**This extension won't be maintained further.** I'm shelving this project due to lack of interest/utility and too much burden. The addon will remain available for download as long as the store allows, and the source on gitlab ( will also remain available to fork. **I do have a greasyfork account ( and may publish works there in the future.** I have mild intentions to reimplement the core functionality of CSL, IBCP, and DID as public userscripts. Also available for Firefox: When you double-click on a piece of plain text, Plain Text Linker tries to determine if what you clicked could be a URL and tries to open it.

Sadly it won't work on links in instagram post descriptions.

I love it. It's very nice for when accessing a list of links from sites like GitHub in raw view, where it's a flat text document. I wish that it would somehow alter the page to underline all links so they stand out more, and if there was a way to single-click the link rather than double-clicking it.
