Adds highlights to text on web pages, and tries to restore them on subsequent visits.

Image from store Super Simple Highlighter
Description from store This is an extension that can highlight text on a web page, in a variety of styles. The highlighted text can be summarised, either as snippets or as full text. In addition, the extension remembers the location & content of each highlight, and **attempts**, not always successfully, to highlight the same passages of text the next time the page is loaded. The current page's highlights are listed by clicking on the 'Pen' icon in the toolbar, along with other management functions, such as copying the highlight's text to the clipboard, or speaking the selected text. Further functions are available in the options page. P.S. You can assign a keyboard shortcut to the creation of a highlight, use Chrome's built-in shortcut facilities, located in the menu of the main Extensions page. P.P.S. This extension does not sync across devices, or make backups. Highlights, alongside the address of the page they were made on, live & die only on the computer they're made. When the extension is uninstalled, your highlights are also deleted. In addition, the data is not encrypted, so you shouldn't highlight sensitive information, such as passwords. P.P.P.S. There are many reasons why highlights may not be restored when the page is reloaded, all of which are related to how the web site is operated, and are beyond my control. Please don't contact me about this, there is literally nothing I can do about it.

  • (2022-05-13) Tatiana A: Great, super easy to use, allowing you to set keyboard shortcuts for different colors. And every time I return to the same website, the highlighted text is still there! Only wish there was a way to add some text notes to the highlight.
  • (2022-05-13) PlainDave: It does not work. Don't waste your time. Search for other highlighters.

  • (2022-03-09) Bumi Safiq: Love this, i found it really useful during exams that uses Google forms, sometimes i choose an answer and change it by accident without noticing while scrolling, so it helps in re checking the answers, i also use it to mark answers, like the highlight color red for "convinced that this is the answer" and yellow for "not sure about this"
  • (2022-03-04) Emm1e 889: I wish we could have a set of folders that are unlimited and the folders could be found specifically for finding which notes were part of the subject and which weren't. Along with that, I wish you could add note taking for the highlighting because it would be helpful and much better.

  • (2022-01-03) Craig O: Thanks for this, great bit of software. I had to hack it to make it work on medium though, due to their id's starting with numbers (which for some reason require unicode escaping (\3). Couldn't figure out how to report it, so here's the one line fix. - if (node.ownerDocument.querySelectorAll(`#${node.id}`).length === 1) { + // Need to escape leading digits in id's.. See https://mathiasbynens.be/notes/css-escapes + // If the first character of an identifier is numeric, you’ll need to escape it based on its Unicode code point. For example, the code point for the character 1 is U+0031, so you would escape it as \000031 or \31 . + // Basically, to escape any numeric character, just prefix it with \3 and append a space character ( ). Yay Unicode! + if (node.ownerDocument.querySelectorAll(`#${node.id.replace(/^(\d)/,'\\3$1')}`).length === 1) {
  • (2021-12-28) ali: very nice and simple
  • (2021-12-14) Erick Ramos Aparicio: Wow una extension increible, muy facil de configurar y usar. Un pequeño consejo solo seria agregar un menu flotante cuando subrayas para poder elegir el color, solo eso, de hay lo demas esta muy bien
  • (2021-12-13) Juan Mondino: Si la comparo con herramientas un poco mas complejas que ayudan a realizar investigaciones de forma mas ordenada la verdad le falta mucho, pero comparandola con un remarcador comun.. bueno no esta mal pero si sobre valorada porque tiene muchisimo para mejorar, empezando por añadir etiquetas y un menu contextual para no tener que estar con el click de raton a cada rato.
  • (2021-12-09) Kavita Yadav: it was good but there was only one clour in it so it was ok you can try it once it was little bad but ok

  • (2021-10-17) SayeMarg: This Is Best Highlighter I Ever Used! Pagination, Colors Are Very Useful Options But The Best Option That I Want To See In Highlighter Extensions Is Backup And Import Highlights! 😍 I Hope Two Option Will Be Available In Next Updates! 1- Highlight Shortcut Key 2- Sync Highlight With Google Drive You Are The Best ❤️
  • (2021-10-11) Scott Hansen: Was this the same extension Edge kicked off as MALWARE?
  • (2021-10-05) Knight of Carrion: Does not even work :/
  • (2021-10-02) A S: This was my most used extension and I loved it but it sadly stopped working about 2 months ago and never worked again. I reinstalled it over 3 times, reinstalled chrome etc, and nothing. Update: So it works on chromium edge browser, but I only use chrome so not sure what to do here.
  • (2021-09-28) Carlos Pita: Love it! It would be nice to be able to export/copy plain text (even if losing the color-coded information) in order to paste to note taking systems that are not markdown based.
  • (2021-09-22) Special K: This extension seems like a great idea: simple and effective, BUT I cannot get it to work. I've attempted different actions, websites, Options, with no success. I may try back b/c this extension looks to be very useful, but it is not working for me at this time. Disappointing. If someone knows the 'secret', I would love to know,
  • (2021-09-09) Cruz Cáceres: Es bastante simple cuando entiendes como funciona, para usarlo por defecto tienes que presionar el botón derecho y buscar la opción de la extensión y eliges el color, pero es mucho mas fácil si configuras una combinación de botones para que se subraye al color que quieras, la opción está disponible, aparece en las preguntas frecuentes del programa.
