- (2021-07-26) Bruce Edge: Finally - a functional multihighlighter I've tried a bunch of these over the years and this one is by far the best to date.
- (2021-07-24) tenerife sea: I like it, however I would like to be able to highlight a different color to each words within a list (each bullet points could be a different color). I somehow was able to do this when I first got the extension, but now after an hour of trying it again, it will not work. trying to change the color of a single word (in a bullet point) will just change the color of every single words in that list. it's frustrating bc when I research literature, every words will just be one blob of color.

- (2021-07-02) Lijo: Very useful and helpful for finding certain words as updated.
- (2021-06-29) Sebastián Palombo: I love the new funcionality that notifies whenever a word is found. I'd love it if the pop up showed you which is the word that was found. That'd literally be awesome.
- (2021-06-03) Fred Buyse: Best in it's kind !!
- (2021-05-07) Saverio Baldassarre: Wonderfull, it will be usefull add the option to mark as bold the founded text
- (2021-05-03) Lord Protector: I don't understand what the ON-OFF switch actually does...I put it in OFF (because I don't want the words to be highlighted every time I open my browser) and it switches back ON!! ...WHY this hassle to disable it every time I open chrome?...So 1 star and removed
- (2021-04-30) Varinder Pal Singh: Extension is really great, but it is not highlight text words in editable fields such as WordPress admin post editor <textarea>this is my word</textarea>. Although I see an option where it says (Highlight in editable fields) but it won't work.
- (2021-04-27) john doe: Excellent work Wim! Words work, sentences work, even works sometimes without refreshing, having several lists was great, so far always work not like other extensions that does not work 50% of the time, very well thought extension.
- (2021-04-17) Luc Godfroid: Je donne 4/5 (pour ne pas dire 5) à cette extension car il y a parfois un problème de vélocité et pour le problème (bien connu) des alphabets accentués comme le français. Ceci dit, franchement, c'est une excellente extension pour peu que l'on se penche dessus avec attention. Comme je travaille sur du turc et azéri et que je possède un clavier turc pour les "Ü-ü-Ğ-ğ-Ş-ş-Ç-ç-I-i-Ə-ə-İ-ı" c'est sans problème.

- (2021-03-29) Faizanur Rahman: Hi Wim, very helpful and creative app. improvement: add a vocabulary builder application, dictionary
- (2021-03-23) Steve Rand: Works, which is nice... wildcard support is fantastic. Only issue I have is when i'm adding new words, enter will save and close, shift-enter will give me a new line but without the checkbox and when I save and edit again, the new lines are all mixed into one line. Update. Enter now creates a new line with checkbox. Great! For some reason, highlighted text in a dropdown list is not clickable. You can click the whitespace after the highlighted word, but not anywhere near the highlighted text.

- (2021-03-02) Вадим Агностик: Перепробовал штук 10 похожих. Но это первое расширение, которые хоть и ставить пробелы до и после выделения, но они настолько небольшие, что текст на странице не корёжит и слова не переносятся на новые строки.
- (2021-02-02) BH519: Wouldn't work at all, I was trying to find a word in a slide I made, I found the word, but it wasn't highlighted, even after adding it to group one, do not recommend to anyone.
- (2021-02-02) Moti Alroy: מעולה!! בדיוק מה שהייתי צריך.
- (2021-01-28) Nik Q: I love this extension, it's definitely the easiest to use and most feature packed that I've used. One thing I haven't been able to get to work is highlighing phrases. I've got four lists set up with different colours which works for all single words but phrases are missed out. Am I missing something?? Thanks for Wim for creating this great app, if I can figure out how to highlight phrases I will donate for sure!
- (2021-01-21) Xuân Nguyễn: I like this exstension, but it has bug :<<
- (2021-01-10) ingo: first I tested some similar tool and i fund your tool is one the best. But all tools (highlight this and all other highlighter tools) miss an importand function and for me this function is the most importand function. Hightlight the link object not on the shown text. So I mean the URL itself (in tags <a href="URL"....</a>) should be detect and displayed text should be marked. Why is that so importand !! Every time i get or search for inofrmation in forums websites etc. i often get multiply times the same link on different source (other websites, subsites, forum, post,...) and the only way is to detect this look on every URL- Bookmarktools have no detction for this too. if this extension adds the functionality to filter the <a href> html-tags too, it were possible to see on other sources this link is on a list like code works, watched, code doesn't work, unsuefull,... This could be codesnippets watched, videos, documentation links,... The implementation coud be a checkbox to check this is a link and put the regard ing DOM-element in the filterlist instead the text or first step the user itself must build the correct link item as regex and add it to the list. So i really hope this or similar functional will added in future releases. For me an highlight and/or annotation extension which can additional mark or detects links, will be the only really usefull extension for me. This i s a big point for me.

- (2020-12-05) Shuu Chuu: This is truly a godsend extension! I'm using it for language learning to highlight words that I tend to forget and it's very powerful combined with it (it's way easier to spot what you learned for textbooks, apps,...). Combined with language that use a different alphabet (like Chinese and Japanese), this really helps with remembering hanzi/kanji. Thank you so much for this extension! EDIT: everything works fine (in case you're worrying about some reviews). Backup works smoothly too (amazing feature!)
- (2020-12-01) Yuanpin Zhou: Highlights didn't show Highlights were saved in the group already, but highlights weren't shown on the page. I tried restarting the web browser but it didn't help.
- (2020-11-28) BaSsGaZ: Removed after less than 2 minutes, the fact that you need to refresh the page everytime AND it doesn't work most of the times I've tried. NOPE!
- (2020-11-26) Oussama Naim: After testing many highlighting Extensions, this one is the best by far.
- (2020-11-12) Đức Nguyễn Văn: great extension ! but it does not work with collocation ( two more words in a group ) :(

- (2020-10-03) Fawaz Akhtar: The latest update broke the updating of the overview list in real time. Now it won't update unless you refresh the page. Please fix this. Edit: Seems to be fixed in the latest v5.2 Edit-2: Issue is back again in v5.2.1 Edit-3: Seems to be fixed in v5.2.2
- (2020-10-01) P D: I love this extension. It is super helpful for my learning. By the way, Recently I've seen "Limitations" in one of my lists. Does it mean I can not put too many words into a group, instead creating another group? Thanks again for the great work!
- (2020-09-29) Sarah Wallace: Hey, used for years, usually great. However yesterday I noticed words from different lists were highlighting in colours assigned to different lists - but not all, only some. I use this for work and it's crucial the lists highlight in their assigned colours.
- (2020-09-26) Hasan Ghavami: Great extension but in latest release "Never highlight on these sites" not working! so it highlight anyway...

- (2020-09-15) Beverly Molano: not working!
- (2020-09-15) Alexander Doak: Sliced bread wishes it was as as good as the Highlight This extension. Seriously. And I hear rumors that the extension may one day integrate with Google Sheets? That would be game changing. GAME CHANGING I TELL YOU.

- (2021-07-21, v:5.2.3) Jessica Rose: Highlight limit & words deleting
Hello, I'd like to know if there is a limit to the number of highlights you can use per pc. I have been adding words to a fairly long and growing list and the next day a lot of them were gone, this happened a few time. I was wondering if this was because the list was too long or if it's a bug?
- (2021-07-19, v:5.2.3) Yee Ting Ng: Unable to delete highlighted list

Good day When opening a PDF the extension stops working I would like to be able to use this to quickly see if a document has a positive or negative sentiment by hi-lighting certain key words, please can you assist with a tutorial or am I missing some setting to allow it to work on all documents I have open? Kind Regards

Please could you stop the update notes from auto opening and downloading a file? I have this on like 6 devices and it's very annoying. Invaluable extension, by the way - thank you!
- (2021-07-06, v:5.2.3) Maria P.: Click action
Hello. I love the possiblity to set-up actions for clicking on highlighted words. In some scenarios setting where the actions should work and where not is, however, a bit complicated for me. What would be great for click action is a possibility to add an "enabler key" - for example if I just click the highlight nothing happens but if I Shift-click, then the action is triggered. (or Ctrl-click). Anyway. Keep up the awesome job for this extension
- (2021-07-06, v:5.2.3) Lynn Lawsein: Changelog for 5.2.3
Love the add-on! Have been using it for years. It's the only one of its kind that actually DOES exactly what it claims, and it always gets better with each update. It was already an incredible add-on, but when you added regex support, it became near-perfect. That said, is there a changelog for 5.2.3? (Or 5.2.2/1 as well?) Unless it was just minor bug-fixes. Also, do you think it would ever be possible to add the option to completely disable the right-click context menu? I never use it, but so many add-ons these days have context-menus that can't be disabled, and it clutters things. I usually download the latest version, comment out the context menus, then re-load the add-on locally, but then it's a hassle when it's updated. That's why I usually check the changelog first to see if it's worth updating. I'd love to use it live, but wish the context menu could be completely disabled. The only other thing that would be really helpful, at least for me, was if there was a way to create containers for groups. I have over 130+ different highlight groups, split up among 4-5 different areas of interest. I usually like to disable certain ones at any given time to reduce performance impact, especially on long pages. It would be nice if we could put highlight groups into containers together, so one could disable/enable many groups at once time. For example, disable a container, and all highlight groups inside are automatically disabled. Otherwise, thanks so much for this add-on! I don't even know how I'd read things online anymore without it. Sometimes I can read massive amounts of text many times faster when I have key words highlighted.

I have used this (my favorite program) for many years. Sadly, it has once again stopped working on Titan TV. This is happening suddenly a few days ago on all three of my computers running the latest version of Windows 10, which is fully up to date and free of viruses. I'm using Version 90.0.4430.212 (Official Build) (64-bit) of your Highlight This program. It's happening on both Google Chrome Browsers and Microsoft Edge (latest versions of each). I'm not using any wild cards or anything unusual. Please help?

I'm particularly interested in highlighting words in financial news stories - you can link to these news stories from this page: https://www.londonstockexchange.com/ For example trying to highlight phrases like "better than expected" or "expectations" in this article: https://www.londonstockexchange.com/news-article/PHTM/trading-update/14948880 Simply doesn't seem to do anything. Is this something I've done wrong, or is there any way that could work please? Many thanks, Andy.

Hi, looks like there an issue in this program. It is like this: when in a word there's a character like 'à' or something similar I believe - the whole word is not highlighted for some reason. May I suggest the character range included for this program is missing some ANSI range, like the one for the Italian or Spanish special character? Just a guess. Thank you

Der Wim, first of all, thank you for this great Tool, I use it quite a lot but there is function that would be great to have. I'm not sure if it makes sense to incorporate it in this tool oder in a new one. It would be pretty helpful to have a popup function. So if a given string (freely to define by User) is found on a web page a popup should show with Information (freely to define by User). Just Like in "Highlight This" it would be great to be able to create different Lists (thus having different functions). I hope you like this Idea. Thank you for your previous work!
- (2021-04-02, v:5.2.2) Justin Clayton: Not highlighting small character
Hi, love this extension. I use it to highlight certain users on a forum I visit. I noticed that the highlighter extension has issue with highlighting the user name F' (F and apostrophe). Maybe it's too short or the apostrophe character is not searchable in the extension. Thought I'd let you know. Thanks.

generelly there seems problems at end of an expression in an html site. so phrase (text1234) in text text tex (text1234) text text will work but not in text text text (text1234). it seems the last character in an expression to check (independend in normal mode or RegEx-mode was choosen. I observed this behaviour for !,?,()(), but i don't know if this are only affected by special html characters or generally special chars. „text“, will work, but "text" will not work too, there are other problems like this but i have it not in mind now. Have you a better solution (bugtracker, github isuues,..) for writter better formatted issues and e.g. for screenshot?

I love this extension. Would it be possible to make highlighting ignore different space types? Right now when I have a phrase "word1 word2" with a regular space on my list and there is a phrase "word1 word2" with two white spaces on the page, the highlighting doesn't work and I need to use REGEX tokens ("word1\s\sword2") to make highlighting work, but then it don't recognize the phrase with one regular space. Could it be possible to make a list ignore space types and how many are they between the words. Using REGEX slows working on the page down. Thank you.

I tried to create a new word list and pasted a list of just over 2000 words each on a line by itself. Highlight This froze and became unresponsive. I closed and reopened Chrome, Highlight This still does not open. I removed the extension, restarted Chrome, re-added Highlight This, restarted Chrome. Still unresponsive. If I click the little Highlight This pencil nothing happens. It may be because I pasted a wordlist, or it may be because I hit 'backspace' and removed the checkbox next to the first word. How can I remove all traces of Highlight This so I can do a clean install?

I used quotation marks in a title for a list and now I can't delete or edit the list. :(

Is there a word or line limit? For example, I made a list that contains greater than 300 items, it looks like that a fraction is saved and not all 300 items. Can you confirm if there is such limit? If so, what is the maximum line of words I can add per each list?
- (2020-11-09, v:5.2.2) Tomas Fransson: Keywords are inserted into the actual web page
First, thanks for a great extension! I'm using it every day. Since a while (maybe 2-3 weeks,) my keywords are sometimes inserted into the actual web page. For example, one of my keywords are "business intelligence" and when browsing the job listings on LinkedIn Jobs the title "data analyst" can be turned into "business intelligence data analyst." Very confusing. When deactivating the extension, the inserted keywords disappear. The issue seems to be specific to LinkedIn, since I haven't experienced it elsewhere.
