  • (2023-11-09) Paulo S Cardoso: Nice extension!
  • (2023-11-09) Jillur Rahman: without upgrading, not synchronizing.
  • (2023-11-09) Kaelan Murdock: Wonderful extension that works on the web and on PDFs. It has helped me tremendously with coursework for online classes and for keeping track of important elements in research articles. It is very easy to use and has a variety of colors which makes it possible to color code different topics.
  • (2023-11-08) Ayesha Hassan: It is one of the best things i have discovered in 2023.it really helped me in taking notes.Very handy and easy to use . literally love it !
  • (2023-11-08) Aadya Aggarwal: This app is soo cool! I loved how productive and organised it helps me be! As a student in the 21st century and a highlighter lover, this really appealed to me. Would totally recommend it to other students like myself!

  • (2023-11-07) rohan tyagi: its no bs
  • (2023-11-07) Foot: You are so awesome. Thank you Marius! If I have any feedback I'll leave a comment, but so far, this extension is beautiful! <3
  • (2023-11-07) Benjamin Just: Very useful, super nice to have, especially when researching. Also, the highlights save when you come back to the same website later.
  • (2023-11-06) Minh Châu Huỳnh: so useful and helpful for me to focus on main ideas of the essay
  • (2023-11-06) Eric Lerner: The highlighter extension works really well and is simple to use. It provides many colors and works on all my different types of documents
  • (2023-11-06) Delara Jalali: The app's greatest attribute is its exceptional ease of use. one of the best. love it!
  • (2023-11-06) Ryan Jay Serio: Using this DEFINITELY makes my research a lot easier. I just find it difficult when the text is at farthest left of the page and the highlighter won't adjust which makes it difficult for me to put tags and texts. My workaround is to zoom out the page so the highlighter would adjust with it. But I'm still giving it 5 star because it has a lot of value for a free tool. Kudos!
  • (2023-11-06) Death Ray: good one
  • (2023-11-05) Celin Zheng: This highlighting app works perfectly. There are however a couple of drawbacks. Firstly, when you move the tab to another window, your highlights completely disappear. I have also noticed that the highlights do not consolidate into one tab in the Web Highlights site unless you uninstall the extension and reinstall after highlighting something then signing back in (it instead shows up as multiple tabs of 1 Highlight, 0 notes for the same pdf). Other than that, it works as expected and is a wonder for organizing information for papers.
  • (2023-11-05) Yamilet Quiroz: Super helpful love it
  • (2023-11-05) J: Useful extension and very easy to use. Would prefer if PDFs could be highlighted on their original page without opening a seperate one, but otherwise a brilliant tool.
  • (2023-11-04) Claudia Bancy: He probado varios highlighters y este es el mejor. Te permite subrayar en varios colores y lo mejor es que puedes eliminar el subrayado. No se vuelve loco y subraya todo el texto como me pasó con otros. Tambien tiene un shortcut super util. Me encanta y me quedo con el!
  • (2023-11-03) Shane Catedrilla: This is very helpful as it is accessible and easy to use. One thing I could recommend is the color variation, hope that it could offer more, especially bright ones. Other than that, it is great!
  • (2023-11-03) Valentina López: Very useful
  • (2023-11-03) Hannah Canalda: Very Helpful.
  • (2023-11-03) Elizabeth Cagigas: Really god highlighting tool. I am able to keep all my research organized and come back to it later. I love that you can add notes or choose different colors for whatever highlights you need, it makes summarizing data or noting important things easier.
  • (2023-11-03) jenna e: 5th highlighting extention ive used and this one is my favorite!
  • (2023-11-02) Youlandaa Alice: Very nice extension. Looking forward to a mac version.
  • (2023-11-02) Carolina Gonzalez Rodriguez: Great tool for online working. Highlighting helps figuring out if the website is worth downloading or not. Works great.
  • (2023-11-02) heng w: 好用!主要下次再看高亮还在的,颜色也可以选。或许可以多点其他可选主题配色,这样审美可能更舒服(自定义的也不容易很好看)。如果有划线,加粗之类功能更好啦,平常做笔记习惯了。
  • (2023-11-01) Litesh Gupta: So far I've liked the tool. easy highlight, plenty of color options, taking notes and deletion and copying data is another useful feature. So far its good. How about integrating a text to speech feature in this tool?
  • (2023-11-01) Dhwani Gajjar: an amaziggggggg toolllll!!!!!!
  • (2023-10-31) Philippe Giard: Very straightforward and efficient. Great for students. Saves a lot of time.
  • (2023-10-31) Omar Elfahsi: works great and very easy to use, helps me stay on track with my research.
  • (2023-10-31) Hokage Prime: gute Idee, nur ist dieses (als auch die ganzen anderen google chrome extensions) miserabel programmiert, beinhalten überall Fehler (Farbe kann man nicht richtig auswählen: PDFs werden markiert und am nächsten Tag sind alle wichtigen Markierungen weg; Einstellungen werden übernommen und dennoch werden bestimmt Fenster, dass man diese Einstellung genau so umändern soll angezeigt),... dann doch lieber einen anderen Browser verwenden, welcher diese Funktion schon integriert hat- und es funktioniert bestens.
  • (2023-10-31) Krystal Holder: works great and very easy to use, helps me stay on track with my research.
  • (2023-10-30) G Miller: Works great, easy to use, doesn't get in the way. I tried a few of the alternatives. Web Highlights works the best for me
  • (2023-10-30) My Diễm: useful, nice, easily to use
  • (2023-10-29) Matthew Davis: I've tried other highlighting extensions for chrome and this one was the best. It works seamlessly with pdf files and traditional web pages.
  • (2023-10-29) Manashwi Nanda: I don't know why when I refresh the page to check if the highlights are still there.. it completly vanishes and I've to re-highlight everything!! Does it not work on Youtube descriptions??
  • (2023-10-28) Soheil Ghahremani: it is a life changer app! you can use it in chrome desktop or your mobile phone! easy sync ... I love it
  • (2023-10-27) Andre Webster: It should be rated as a really good extension, however there is this really annoying drawback : after you finish reading and highlighting a webpage you click to read the next wepage (turn to page 2 for instance), as soon as webpag 2 loads up, it brings every highlighted text from webpage 1. So, one cannot continue bookmarking the website because there is no separation between highlighted pages. It is a real glitch. ______________________________________________________________ There is no more glitch. Mr. Marius has solved the problem. The thingy works like a charm !!! Cheers man, keep up with the good work.! Thanks a bunch! André

  • (2023-07-29, v:8.5.2) Khoa Mai Anh: Add feature
    This is a great extension! The only missing thing is that when hovering over the highlighted area, the note doesn't appear immediately; you have to click on it to view it. I've tried many extensions, and only Weava Highlighter - PDF & Web does this. I hope you'll update this small feature in the future.
  • (2023-07-22, v:8.5.2) Đỗ Thị Mỹ Kiều: The words that I have highlighted do not show up on the website that I did
    Hi Marius, I really like your extension, it's very helpful for me but there is an error but I don't know if it's my machine malfunction or your extension. I've highlighted the words I want, when I'm done, I double-check that it's saved and I've turned off my computer. By the time I turned on my computer again, went back to the site I had highlighted, the words I highlighted were gone. I went to web-highlights.com and saw that the words I highlight were still there, but on the web that I highlight the words, they don't show up. I have deleted and reopened many times but it still doesn't show up. I don't know what to do, can you help me? Thank you very much.

  • (2023-02-01, v:7.7.1) yang piao: CSS Bug Report
