  • (2021-09-12) Freddy: Es una muy buena herramientá para buscar palabras en diferentes páginas, pero el problema es que no funciona bien cuando se usa para buscar varias palabras en Excel de Google Docs, no encuentra las palabras que se agregan en la hoja, en contraste con el buscador normal de Ctrl-f, que aunque sólo busca una palabra a la vez, la encuentra en la hoja de Excel con facilidad.
  • (2021-08-13) Mike Savad: this thing is stupid. i'm trying to highlight terms on the page. and it does that. but if you have an open box of keywords - it erases the word as it finds it. its gone, just gone. its like it turned it into a find and replace, its not white, its just missing now. i think this is what i wanted in a program if it just highlighted things. but to make it vanish too? that's stupid. i don't get that.
  • (2021-07-25) FamKis: I'd recommend the less polished looking, but having tons more functionality addon SearchBar instead. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/searchbar/fjefgkhmchopegjeicnblodnidbammed Enjoy -- you can thank me later.

  • (2021-04-20) Рост Лёгкий: Не хватает перемещения по найденным совпадениям слов, и чтоб через сочетания клавиш искало, и чтоб в память запоминало два три слова!.. Не совсем такое тут с этим подходит, буду искать дальше - другие расширения... Посоветуйте кто-что знает!

  • (2018-05-22) Giorgio: wow
  • (2018-04-17) Asfand Qazi: Qnother extension using ridiculously generic styles in it's stylesheets like 'ui-button', which clashes with existing pages and causes things to mess up! Please prefix something unique to your style names to reduce the chances of them clashing with pages.
  • (2018-02-11) Rifat Hussain: not working after 100 clicks
  • (2017-10-04) Fran Go: Would be great if the scroll bar could also show the results, so you can go straight to the part of the document where most results converge
  • (2017-10-03) Gersivan Oliveira: É boa e bem útil. Falta "memorizar" as palavras. Elas somem após atualizar a página, sendo necessário digitar tudo novamente. Marca as palavras com radicais que combinam. Não suporta YT.

  • (2021-08-15, v: Mike Savad: highlighter isn't working with keywords
    not sure if this went through so its probably a double. I've used a number of highlights on vivaldi with the same result. If you visit this thread: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/65242/search-highlighters-are-all-broken/12 it will explain it better because i'm not sure how to explain it. I'm going to ask this on the other 2 extensions i'm using. I just can't figure out why it does this. The basic problem is, when I do a search, everything in a keyword box vanishes. And the guy on that page explained what is happening but the solution doesn't sound easy or convenient. Thanks.

  • (2020-12-08, v: US DEVELOPMENT CAPITAL INC: business proposal
    Hi ! We are interested in presenting and offering a proposal to a company that we are working with. As mentioned in my previous email, this company has a large number of chats to moderate, and they already have 1200 agents working in these queues, plus 300 employees with access to the platform. The agents need to read the chats and find keywords, like profanity, harassment, discrimination, among others, so they can moderate and punish the users. Therefore it would be easier and faster if they can identify these words using an app like yours, clicking on the icon and the app-program can search the keywords or phrases. Please let us know as soon as possible if your app can do this sending us an email to [email protected] . Awaiting your reply. Thanks again. Best regards, Ivette Moloon

  • (2020-07-05, v: KCee NL: Ability to search multiple key phrases
    This extension is great except the fact that you can't just highlight "Red Apple" when there is "Red Color" in the page. Instead of just highlighting the first one, it'll also highlight the word "Red" on the second phrase. Tried entering each key words in double quotations but it's not working as expected.
  • (2020-07-05, v: KCee NL: does not work
    Tried clicking the Extension icon and the keyboard short cut (ctrl+shift+'a') but nothing happens. Seems like other people had experienced the same issue. Removing the extension.

  • (2020-01-15, v: Akshay Sorathiya: Clicking icon doesn't work
    After downloading extension, the icon doesn't work, there is no search bar to find words.
  • (2019-06-26, v: 白杨: Consider allowing a shortcut key to be set
    It would be nice if the user could be allowed to set a shortcut to activate the search bar.

  • (2018-05-16, v: Steve T: DOESNT WORK
    DOESNT WORK. Clicking on the icon does NOTHING.
  • (2018-04-20, v: Gita Astari: It doesn't always work
    It's great, but it only works like 50% of the time for me. I wonder why that is.
  • (2018-02-11, v: Stephen Flynn: Highlighting a phrase
    Is there a way to highlight two words together as a phrase, not individually?
  • (2018-01-17, v: Asfand Qazi: Injected stylesheet
    Your stylesheet uses styles that are way too generic. For example, you have a style called 'ui-button' which center-aligns text amongst other things, which messes with the styles from our stylesheet which also uses a ui-button class. Please prefix your styles with something more unique to yourselves. Am disabling extension due to this.
  • (2017-07-26, v: FamKis: auto-sync
    MultiHighlighter really should sync automatically with search terms used in a search engine beforehand. Like the 'Conform SearchBox' Addon together with 'SearchWP' on Firefox -- the greatest search Addons of all times.
  • (2017-07-13, v: Josh Diaz: Options menu disabled
    On my version of this extension the options menu is not available. Why?
