Description from extension meta

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.

  • (2020-09-25) areonco: I was nervous all the highlights will be gone after cleaning the browser with ccleaner. I was so happy to see the highlights remained there. Thank you for your work!

  • (2020-09-16) X - Force: For those having trouble getting the highlighter to work, make sure you click the pen icon of the extension (to allow it access to the page) before highlighting. Might be obvious to some, but it wasn't to me. Extension works fine. I wish I could add a note/comment to the section I highlight, but other than that it's great!

  • (2020-08-25) Patricia John: I hated the extension. It was not working. I had given permissions to the extension, yet it was not able to highlight any text. I had tried it on the following Google Sites: https://sites.google.com/view/take-care-of-your-eyes/home https://sites.google.com/view/tamil-music-123 https://sites.google.com/view/patricia-john-home-salon-tips https://sites.google.com/view/english-with-isabella-james
  • (2020-08-22) Mlok Karel: Dobré, hodně dobré!
  • (2020-08-21) Yuhua Deng: He can't work on baidu.com website, hope you can fix it
  • (2020-08-13) Chustco: Wow!!! AWESOME And SIMPLE!!! 5-STARS!!!
  • (2020-08-06) Robert Leonardo: I could not get it to work initially. Restarted Chrome and it is functioning. Simple and useful!
  • (2020-07-27) Jatin Kay: Great concept, was working perfectly fine until suddenly it stopped highlighting, wonder why?! Tried disabling & re-enabling it but still no luck. Strange.
  • (2020-07-24) Nicole Sung: Did not want any of those features in most highlighter extensions like *highlighting all matched words* or *share highlighted words on social media*. I just wanted a simple highlighter tool with more than one color so this is perfect. (Also the fact that it saves your highlights across all websites is a big plus)
  • (2020-07-15) Brett Vaughn: I was super disappointed when I first added this extension due to the inability of its use, it simply would not "super simply highlight" anything on any webpage but after restarting my laptop (MacBook Pro) and deleting the extension and re-adding it, the extension finally did its job. Im excited to start using it on my assignments for class. *Note for the developers - Please add this comment in the extension description for future users or fix this bug, I am very grateful for this extension but not everyone wants to troubleshoot this issue on various interfaces.

  • (2020-06-28) Zarif Muhtasim: Exactly what i was looking for
  • (2020-06-27) Eugene Stanichnikov: Очень полезное расширение. Всё самое важное, что я выделил разных статьях, хранится в одном месте. Заметки можно сортировать дате создания или по названию статьи в которой они сделаны.
