Switcheroo Redirector (delisted)

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Setup custom redirect rules for any http request i.e pages, scripts, images etc. Uses a simple string replace to do this.

Image from store Switcheroo Redirector
Description from store Allows Url redirects / Url rewrites using text replace. For example If we set up rule "bbc.co.uk" > "abc.co.uk" any occourence of bbc.co.uk will be replaced by abc.co.uk as shown below: http://bbc.co.uk > http://abc.co.uk http://abbc.co.uk > http://aabc.co.uk Great for switching in development scripts for live scripts or switching between minified and development versions of frameworks such as jQuery, mootools etc. Latest: Fixed double scanning bug Project source can be found and contributed to on github: https://github.com/ranjez/Switcheroo

  • (2021-02-19) Erika Graham: Was working fine for several years, then suddenly it appears to have lost all my redirects. When trying to restore them involving links with "https://" it removes the colon : and produces an usable URL, so as far as I can tell it's now useless to me. Still wish Chrome would just allow you to set up shortcuts to type into the URL bar to go to specific websites; this is a ridiculously clunky way around the issue.
  • (2021-02-08) User: Отличное расширение для Настоящих мужчин!
  • (2020-12-09) Abdul Diaz: Works beautifully, unlike Redirector (too clunky and convoluted). No hard, challenging manuals. Very straightforward. Well, but very well done.
  • (2020-10-16) Gabriel Passos: Used it for many weeks but suddenly all my inserted rules disappeared.
  • (2020-04-15) Venator: Good.
  • (2020-04-14) Usr Local: Перестало работать. Больше не редиректит aliexpress.ru на aliexpress.com
  • (2020-03-11) Jasmine English: Love this extension! It's saved me a lot of time in testing. The one feature I wish it had is the ability to label or name a saved switch. I often have multiple script swaps saved within the extension, but scripts are often not friendly and I have a hard time differentiating between the multiple I have saved.
  • (2020-02-15) icey100 icey100: IT DOES NOT WORK!
  • (2020-01-04) F M: Outright does not work at all. Simply does nothing whatsoever when presented with a "redirect" URL. This app is a scam, avoid.
  • (2019-12-25) yanqi zhang: if I set {empty} > some url ,then bad thing would happen
  • (2019-12-09) Joe DiDonato: Small, light, simple, and effective. Does what it needs to!
  • (2019-11-16) Marcos Santos: Muito boa esta extensão. Parabéns ao desenvolvedor e obrigado por compartilhar.
  • (2019-09-19) Francesc Simon: Good extension but please... fix this: When adding a new case, don't check it by default: I just added one where the first parameter was empty and the second was an url to localhost and then I added it, because I had to close switcheroo to copy the second url and because the form resests I saved it. After adding it I couldnt do anything with my browser, and even switcheroo extension itself was being redirected to my URL so I COULDN'T UNCHECK that case. It made me uninstall and install again.
  • (2019-09-16) dian wang: 有个缺点就是配置错误的话会导致配置窗口打不开,需要删掉插件重新安装才可以
  • (2019-06-24) Barış Tiryaki: Vikipedi'ye erişim için kullanabilirsiniz wikipedia.org -> 0wikipedia.org kuralını ekledim Her seferinde elle düzeltmekten kurtuldum
  • (2019-06-13) John C. Worsley: Super simple but does the job.
  • (2019-06-01) Martin Hayes: I tried this on Facebook to show me the latest posts instead of the ones they wanted me to see. It worked on the main page but wouldn't let me browse any other part of facebook.
  • (2019-05-27) Deniz Negiş: Simple and working. Great!
  • (2019-05-03) Laurence Cope: It works except is loads a new empty tab for every link you click. So I end up with tonnes of empty Untitled tabs in Chrome. It needs a way to do it without opening tabs, or close them afterwards
  • (2019-04-28) Jon Jones: 刚好需要能替换URL中字符串的插件
  • (2018-11-14) diebesgrab: This worked perfectly for me for a few months, until one day when upon starting Chrome, to my surprise, every single redirect I'd set up had vanished. I probably had nearly a hundred, and it's going to take forever to set them all back up again.
  • (2018-11-12) Arther Taylor: Thankyouuuu! - I've been casually trying to install extensions for ages now that do exactly this - redirect urls to my favourite country / part of the page / avoid popups etc. Perfect, thankyou so much.
  • (2018-11-06) Chao: Excellent!!!
  • (2018-10-04) Mike Cameron: This plugin ruined my life for a day. ANYTIME you enter text into your browser whether it be for an email address or website it will change it. In my case I was using PayPal to send a large sum of money and it changed the email address's domain, and now I'm out that money until Paypal retrieves the money sent to a COMPLETELY different email address. DO NOT USE THIS!
  • (2018-09-24) jagadeesha kanihal: Feature Requests: - Please add option to sync and export/import redirect rules. - Add support regex rules, like *.google.*.* --> iitb.ac.in
  • (2018-09-15) Daniel Sasson: Works perfectly, but I'm unable to open the options menu where you can add and modify rules after updating to the newest version of Chrome.
  • (2018-09-10) Christian Brodersen: easiest way to change reddit to old format without the need of a reddit account www.reddit.com -> old.reddit.com
  • (2018-09-10) Chandler Henson: Good app, only thing it needs is to redirect to the exact site you pick, and not put part of the original url on it.
  • (2018-08-31) Alex Lewy: Simple, but reliable and so so useful
  • (2018-06-05) Mojtaba Vahdati: Please disable the url replacement on page reloads otherwise it'll be useless. Also there's another error, when I did something like this google.com > www.google.com the google logo was not loaded. Fix this too. All in all, I love this extension, but honestly it's not very interesting now. You may want to add an advanced regex support. Thanks.
  • (2018-06-02) Bron: use it every day at work. Win Edge doesn't have one. Boom!
  • (2018-04-28) Bodhisattwa Saha: Its helping me to reduce Youtube addiction :P
  • (2018-01-29) Mohit Ghune: Works great! But I would be really happy, if there was an import/export settings option. I request you to look into it. Thanks. :)
  • (2018-01-16) Johannes W.: Dont use this! It is really bugged and be aware that if you uninstall this addon, the rules will still apply...
  • (2017-12-14) Brendan McGill: Literally doesn't work at all. Won't let me add pages, can't even click on the text box, I have to click below it for some reason, and the Add button is simply unclickable, pressing ENTER also does not submit.
  • (2017-11-22) Sayed sha: Please add export/import rule option
  • (2017-11-13) P West: If you don't put something in the right hand redirect textbox it breaks. Would be nice if we have access to the file the redirects are stored in so we can fix problems manually
