  • (2012-12-01) I mostly use this Chrome-extension to know, before I click on a hyperlink, whether it will open in a new tab, replace the current webpage, download a file, etc. What it does: when hovering over a link, an icon shows what will happen when you click on the link.

  • (2020-06-01, v:4.2) Mark Fernandes: How can I trust this extension isn't malware?
    This extension is asking for permissions to modify all my web data. That seems far too many permissions for what is the simple function that the extension provides. Can you please help me to be able to trust this extension isn't malware? Thanks, Mark Fernandes
