  • (2021-03-19) JP Dénommée: Exactly what I needed to find predefined list of words and highlight them. Although, I need more than what it currently offers: -It cannot highlight a specific sentence; only words -There's like 4-5 colors; if you specify 10 words then different words will be highlighted with the same color
  • (2021-03-13) Steven Emerson: Incredible little tool. Has helped me so much. Bravo Alexius! My only request would be for a keyboard shortcut to enabled / disable :)
  • (2021-02-10) Hui Zhou: 这个不错,不过我也在这个插件的基础上进行了升级优化,支持特定词汇指定颜色高亮等。
  • (2021-02-10) Chris Luera: This is pretty great! Is it possible to add a hotkey like ctrl+f ?
  • (2021-02-01) Michael Huang TW: The best one I have ever used.
  • (2021-01-19) vishnu1 madhav: Usefull tool

  • (2020-12-31) the spaceman: Would be cool if it showed how many of each word there is. At the first highlighted word
  • (2020-12-23) Denis scott: Excellent simple programming performed well. Love using this
  • (2020-12-06) Серега Моков: Не ищет единичный символ. (одну цифру или одну букву) Например, нельзя найти цифру 5 или букву е Нельзя найти "1 сезон" - так как тут есть 1. Но можно найти "11 сезон" Нельзя найти "сделано в" - так как единичная буква. Но можно найти "сделано во"
  • (2020-11-16) Guillermina Rivera Villatte: me parecio muy bueno excelente
  • (2020-11-15) Mete Kunduz: Erg handig, maar nog een paar verbeterpuntjes: meer kleuren een optie voor een zin markeren
  • (2020-11-15) Thupthai Supain: good
  • (2020-10-15) Mike Mover: i love this addon, using it to re-assign leads out of our database from prior employees, do not have to look name by name anymore... MAKES MY JOB A LOTT EASIER!. YOU GUYS ROCK
  • (2020-10-08) Justin Dehorty: As other users have pointed out, this application is sending information to a known malicious domain. The information being sent includes user-specific data such as IP address, language, browser version, and key word strings. Specifically, this can be seen in the extension's source code at lines 35-60 of the file "js/background.js". An explanation from the developer is appreciated.
  • (2020-10-05) Thomas Bunink: It does what it needs to do, I suppose, but I need phrase searching. If I include something in quotes I want it to find the phrase and not highlight each individual word. Not suitable to my usecase
  • (2020-09-25) 이형욱: 정말 좋아요
  • (2020-08-20) JC C: search for PIET on google store ... similar yet different multiple highlighter: phrase, RegEx support, extraction of highlighted text, etc.
  • (2020-08-12) Ashok Acharya: good one! can search in multiple iframe(which most of other extension fails) . One improvement can be, stick to the page unless user press shortcut key.I mean like, chrome's find. It would be great. Thanks.
  • (2020-08-08) SW J: Very useful app!! Thanks. how about adding multi highlighting keyword per 'Tab' ??
  • (2020-07-26) 叫个沃特: 牛逼 o( ̄▽ ̄)d

  • (2020-03-20) S HD: excellent tool! BUT I wish it could work on PDFs that will be a game changer for many students !!!!!
  • (2020-03-16) 숨은주식찾기: 고마워요 개발자님 오류없이 작동잘되니 너무좋네요
  • (2020-02-23) Viv: Thank you for making this extension. If I may suggest, please add an option to highlight mutiple words, or phrases.
  • (2020-02-14) Suwat Netprom: smart and easy use
  • (2020-02-13) J C: great extension
  • (2020-01-30) Julio Cesar Fernandes: New suggestion: Could you please make a way to open the popup window and change the words to highlight through right click menu in the page? Hi, I have some suggestions: 1. Make words in the same line the same color (only if multiline text is detected) 2. Count repetitions of found elements or a sum of elements from the same line (ties with the first suggestion), would be best to see inside the page a hovering box with this info, but showing the line with most results in the extension icon and inside the extension would be cool too 3. Ability to use regex (I know that it uses it internaly, but would be nice to have a toggle to type the regex to search 4. I noticed that in google searches (and probably in other places), when you type a number, if the number is part of a page date, it will mark the part, I think it only had to mark if the whole "word" or number matches...
  • (2020-01-10) Garrixpal Xxx: 希望支持特定词汇指定颜色高亮,单字高亮可能效果不太好,如果可以也可以添加。 太谢谢您了,超渴望特定词汇特点颜色,将对工作效率有极大的提升!
  • (2020-01-08) Anna Conrad: It was great and we liked it, but it began "stealing" words from internet pages (specifically, from out ATS system). If I put some words into extension - they disappear from the page. At all. I can't see them and multiple reloads of pages won't help. It's so disappointing!
  • (2019-12-12) Laura Aksomitaitė: Includes <i> tag inside textarea and text dissapears. WORST PLUGIN
  • (2019-11-03) Eduardo Santana: Simples e funcional! Basta clicar no ícone da extensão, e escrever as palavras a serem localizadas. Parabéns aos desenvolvedores.
  • (2019-10-21) Stacey Shpaner: The name of the extension is misleading. I thought this was a manual highlighter tool. It might get more users if you renamed it "multi-word finder & highlighter"
  • (2019-09-29) B. Casey: does nothing
  • (2019-09-28) Barbara Rossa: It is a great extension and I use it constantly. It would be great if there could be a "root highlight" function; for example if I were to enter "bak" then the highlighter would pick up anything with those 3 letters in that order: "baker, baking, baked, etc." that would save me from writing every single word. This option would be very useful in other languages, such as Spanish, since verb tense, conjugation, gender, and single/plural changes the word ending but the root is always the same. Also, I use the extension across several computers, and when I make a change to the word list on one computer, I keep having to update that list on all of them. It would be great if it could update automatically.
  • (2019-09-25) Michael Massaro: working great.....
  • (2019-09-22) Raul Ramirez: estaria mejor si se pudiera poner que por ejemplo si quiere que resalte solo cuando las 3 palabras estan juntas como "put on hold", y no todos los put y hold y on del texto. si no solo los "put on hold". Solo asi le daria las 5 estrellas
  • (2019-09-10) V M: ehh i would like an extension that doesnt need to have a filter and u can use ctrl f
  • (2019-09-02) Alex Iosifidis: Very useful to me, I work as a content editor, I create new content for a price comparison site and I always surf on website seeking for product specifications. It has helped me a lot on websites that don't have a certain product format. Would love to see Opacity - Custom coloring options though. I use many keywords and sometimes the so many colors can be tiring for the eye though your add-on has helped me improve my time a lot. Thanks in advance for this!
  • (2019-08-28) Adam Klar: More colors please
  • (2019-08-23) H-K sweet mix: I like it very much supper supeeer fun and useful
  • (2019-08-23) Sumit Kumar: I like it very much but if we can support for regex searches by enabling a toggle for that(So, that it is optional) it would be very great!
  • (2019-08-21) Rajat Verma: Exactly what i was looking for when testing for various word changes on the webpage
  • (2019-08-20) Yuwei Peng: 非常好用,如果支持内容替换就好了
  • (2019-08-14) Bscript VJSVS: It does what I need, without crashing the browser, as far as I can tell :) I'm sure some people would rather have more features, but sometimes in the world of software, less is more. Thanks for the extension, and I'll see you on Patreon.
  • (2019-07-30) 김승겸: 난왜 작동이 안되냐
  • (2019-06-14) Jakub Przybylak: works perfectly if you have for example keywords listed in excel, and have to scroll through a ton of text

    Text typed into the highlight box is not rendered correctly. It's chopped up, frequently after the 1st few pixels from the left. Sometimes it gets redrawn and it's readable again, but usually I have to Ctrl-A del to clear, and just type without seeing what's being typed.

  • (2019-09-19, v:1.20) Francesco Mantovani: Found a bug hard to reproduce
    Hello, I found a bug which is hard to reproduce. I tried to reproduce it on other pages but I can only reproduce it on Kibana. Maybe has something to do with long words or special characters or maybe JSON text. Here the steps: 1) In your add-ons I search for 2 words: 707de630-39e0-42cc-97bd-85392b0174ca rideID. 2) I find what I want, it's inside a JSON text and it looks lie this: [{\"rideID\":\"5ddd0530-da9c-11e9-bd40-e60ed356176d\",\ 3) I now wan to select the number I was looking for which is 5ddd0530-da9c-11e9-bd40-e60ed356176d 4) With the mouse I highlight it and I copy it 5) I paste it to a notepad and but instead of 5ddd0530-da9c-11e9-bd40-e60ed356176d I see ddd0530-da9c-11e9-bd40-e60ed356176d\ As you can see the first character is escaped and the last "\" is added. It looks like my mouse is copy/pasting one character more and escaping the very first one. Not sure if you can reproduce it but I can every single time
