  • (2022-09-25) Soroush Torkian (O0oSorousho0O): Great extension for teachers. If you have differentiated groups but some web app you're working with doesn't have the ability to group students in a user friendly way, this is a good workaround. It's colour coded too so it jumps at you as opposed to black on white background text.
  • (2022-09-14) Omar XD: Por favor, podrían revisar qué está pasando? Cuando intento cargar un archivo para continuar con el Highlight, no me aparece ningún resaltado... Cuando yo resalto el texto y envio el archivo Hightlight mi compañero me dice qué no aparece nada resaltado. POR FAVOR Y GRACIAS!!!
  • (2022-08-30) mariusz kazik: This extension is redirecting from google links ( shopping) to https://myclick-3.com/p/7WBO/FEgv/f27M?ml_sub1=at108665_a157376_m12_p163493_cPL&dl_url=https...."google link to shop here" !!!

  • (2022-08-08) Alberto J. Fedeli: Sadly the extension is now acting as malware and redirecting traffic to some websites through affiliate links. You can test this yourself. Do a google search for Dell and use one of the first few links. You will first be redirected through a site such as anrdoezrs(dot)net. Disable the extension, reload the google search and click a link, you will do directly to the site as expected.
  • (2022-08-07) David: I would give this a higher rating, but there's been a recurring issue of words disappearing from a list. All lists are set to sync so it's not due to changing computers. This issue is making me consider using another extension. I really like this extension and its functionality but the disappearing words is making this too unreliable.
  • (2022-07-26) John Anderson: Fantastic tool! A similar tool that I had used for years was withdrawn from the Chrome store, and so I had to look again, and this tool has easily 3x the features of the previous tool. My only feature suggestion would be either adding the name of the group as a ToolTip/Title to the highlighted term, or provide a field to provide a ToolTip for the highlighted term. For example, suppose I want to boycott/support certain organizations. Sure, I can highlight their names everywhere, but I might forget why I'm highlighting those names, and a quick MouseOver could tell why it's highlighted. Thanks for a get extension!
  • (2022-07-25) света ивановна: Ужасно. редикт
  • (2022-07-14) Tuan Nguyen: Very nice EXT. Hope you make 'auto jump to result' function. Tks
  • (2022-07-04) Chintu sharma: good highlighter ,worked for me thank you.
  • (2022-06-28) Julian Harms: 5 Stars!!! Probably not it's intended usage but this tool has been a lifesaver for me as a Technical Recruiter. I can add in technical competencies, and qualifications and screen resumes/LinkedIn's/profiles at SUCH a high rate. I actually found out that I can source faster than anyone in my organization due to this tool! Definitely recommend working with this. Can be a bit finicky working between different profiles and you have to refresh every once in a while, but as a daily user. It's value is worth the trouble!
  • (2022-06-19) Aditya Amatya: Thank you for this amazing piece of art. I'm preparing for GRE and this extension have been a great help to me. The only thing it is missing it couldn't highlight the words in epub ( reading using extension). Can it be done ?
  • (2022-06-04) K. P.: 2022-06-04 This still works! Found troubleshooting help in the other reviews! I wish we could contribute to this developer.
  • (2022-06-03) Austin K: Used to work in Google Docs, not anymore. Amazing tool, developer is clearly just doing this in his free time so it's amazing he's put this much effort into it. I wish there was a lifetime deal or something for a paid version with some guaranteed support.
  • (2022-05-26) network time: Dando error últimamente, se duplican las palabras resaltadas y es imposible de utilizar, revisar por favor, del resto es una aplicación muy extraordinaria. Gracias
  • (2022-05-11) Pat MySecret: Glitchy. Save function is sporadic (particularly for checkmarking items). It doesn't seem to be able to highlight abbreviations like U.S. Adding words is confusing.. just add a word after a space and then bump it to the next line with enter. I'm afraid that I will have to keep looking.
  • (2022-05-04) Garett Lay: It does what it says. Doesn't seem to be the best looking, and some of the instructions for things like the actions are not as understandable for someone who only knows the basics of browsing the web. I installed this to see if there was a specific feature, but sadly there is not and will be removing it. It seems like it has been a while since there was any updates, but if you are still supporting this, it could be a useful feature to add an "Action" to show a specific note that you have typed up when you click on the highlighted text. With that feature alone, I know there are 30+ of us that would install this immediately. Again, it does what you have intended it to do, and might be exactly what others need, just not me.
  • (2022-04-27) Justin Shinn: Works great!
  • (2022-04-22) Sam Song (plaonn): Great add-on. But I think URL blacklist is not working globally (blacklist per list is working)
  • (2022-04-14) Carlos Le-Fort: Excellent application. Exactly what I was looking for.
  • (2022-03-30) Saeed Hasani: Awsome!
  • (2022-03-16) 林风: 在Setting-General中,写入对某一网址(也使用了通配符),希望禁止在该网页上的所有高亮,但结果该网页还是会被高亮。如果在每一条高亮的详细设置中,一一写入改该网址,可以禁止高亮。但,我的列表中有10多条高亮清单,一一点击设置也麻烦了。希望开发者能改进,全局禁止在某一网页上高亮的设置功能。
  • (2022-02-17) Ky: Doesn't work with changing page contents
  • (2022-01-26) Eric: This highlighter is unmatched. But it could really use a tooltip feature on hover or click that displays the list name the item belongs to. That way if there are several highlights of similar color, they can be differentiated, but more importantly, we can save important information about the highlights. This would basically allow us not only to highlight specific keywords but basically end up with a function to append a note/text/label to those highlights, with what would probably take very little programming. I do believe such a feature would revolutionize the way many of use use the web. Wanted to submit that to your vote site, but it seems to be down. --- Troubleshooting in case anyone is having issues: One day it stopped working. Comepletely broken, will not highlight anything. Nothing changed, settings are the same, nothing is paused, nothing in the white/blacklist. Very strange. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and various other things to no avail. Eventually I had a hunch and went into chrom://flags (vivaldi://flags, in my case) and enabled "Allow invalid certificates for resources loaded from localhost," reinstalled the extension, and voila, it's working again. HOWEVER importing a backup of previous settings broke the extension again. I had to add them all back manually. I would really like to see the developer address this problem at least by pointing to instructions of some kind for how to solve this problem.
  • (2022-01-21) Charles Magnuson: This extension used to be great, but it appears the developer has gone AWOL and is no longer making needed improvements or performing maintenance.
  • (2022-01-19) Tuomas: Works as intended. However, if you search the wordlist and delete the word you searched for and then save the list, it will DELETE ALL WORDS IN THE LIST.. Now I have to remember and rewrite every single word in the list again....
  • (2022-01-15) Kenuvis Romero: This recently stopped working. Not sure what happened. Won't highlight anything yet previously working flawlessly. Happened within the last week. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't work. I checked the white/black list and it's empty. Pausing and unpausing didn't work, and adding a new highlight doesn't either, so it's not just old highlights. Not sure what's going on. It's a shame this was previously my favorite highlighter. Maybe related there was recently an issue with the popup that wasn't full fized and prevented me from actually interacting with it until I opened the extension address in the browser bar to get it full sized. This might or might not be related but thought it might be a hint as to what might be going on here.
  • (2022-01-14) sai Krishna: When printing the webpage, although colors aren't showing up, the highlighted words have a box enclosing them. How can it be removed?
  • (2021-12-21) David Purser: December 2021 - Are you still maintaining this extension for Chrome? I am asking because I have not see recent reviews with any comments the developer. I use this in my daily workflow to highlight my task list in Salesforce.com and it has not been working for a week. Enable/Disable, Uninstall/reinstall/Reimport config does not resolve. Google Chrome Version 96.0.4664.110 (Official Build) (64-bit). Can you please let me know if you require any troubleshooting on my part to assist?
  • (2021-12-20) Lucian Luca: Bad extension! Sometimes works sometimes not. But the biggest problem I had is that a few days after I installed it, I couldn't load certain sites (ex: youtube). I deleted the history, cookies, passwords and media files from the browser and the problem remained. After uninstalling this extension, things returned to normal. It won't be fun to accept all the cookies again and enter the passwords again on Google Chrome. :(
  • (2021-11-26) Michael B: I need to highlight words in both English and Russian, but if I check "Only detect complete words" it won't select the Russian words, and if I uncheck it, it seems to find every partial match for the English words (ie. apple seems to match the word a.) I say "seems" because it doesn't highlight anything but the alert pops up saying it found a match when there is no match with the full word. The interface is confusing as well.
  • (2021-11-10) Cari Riley: Catches some words but also misses a lot. When I click and try to add what is missed, it tells that the word was already added so, it just misses a lot of what's already on my list.
  • (2021-10-29) Tony Lim: anyone know if this extension is still being maintained by the author? if not, anyone know any open source alternative? I was wondering if the action can be expanded to include "copy to clipboard" feature.
  • (2021-10-13) Артем Секретный: Случайно выяснил, что расширение как минимум в поисковой выдаче правит ссылки и выдает свои с рефералкой. Как таковое пару раз пригодилось, но с такой фишкой - идет в пекло.
  • (2021-10-12) Alexander Zazworka: It was good, but the newest version redirects some google search links to mtusrede.de/redir/clickGate.php
  • (2021-10-01) Подгруппа Марины: As soon as a letter in a word?
  • (2021-09-27) Josemaria Adriatico: A very helpful tool, aids me in speed reading through articles especially when working. My only issue is that I can't get seem to get the site exclusions working, it still highlights the words in websites I've added in the exclusion list.. even *.google.* isn't working

  • (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.

  • (2021-07-20) 买祥: 功能非常完整
  • (2021-07-14) Joshua Tan: Is it possible to make it off by default? I only want to turn it on myself when I need it but it seems like every time I open a new window, it's turned on by default.
  • (2021-07-02) Lijo: Very useful and helpful for finding certain words as updated.

  • (2022-09-20, v:5.3.2) Heather Glude: Does not highlight in popup 'drawers'
    My company has a lot of tools where I work through a list and when I click on an item, the information slides out in a panel on the right of the screen, not refreshing the whole page. That is where I need the highlights but it doesn't seem to trigger the tool to do the highlights. I can get it to do so by toggling a list off and then on again, but that is too cumbersome for the frequency it would have to happen (every few minutes). I had previously used Multi-highlight and was excited that Highlight This allows lists and lets me assign the appearance of the highlighting, but unfortunately the highlighting of text in these 'drawers' is too critical.
  • (2022-09-09, v:5.3.2) Dale Zinkgraf: Highlight this enterprise license
    The company I work for is interested in Highlight This but the security dept says we can't use it because it connects to an external site. Do you have or can you consider having a paid enterprise license of a version of Highlight This which is only local with not external connections.

This is the sheet URL I used: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gOxlw_bq2PPC-XXXXXXXXMizllx_9HpIlL9_Kzc0lAg/edit?usp=sharing (I changed the URL and added XXX) Anybody else with the same problem?

  • (2022-06-15, v:5.3.1) Sabrina Lewis: bug
    The highlighted words seem to duplicate themselves, and I will eventually have multiple highlighted words in a row when in actuality there should only be one. I am constantly having to turn the tool off, reload the page, turn it back on, reload again to reset everything back to normal. The longer I'm using it the more the words accumulate. Can you please look into this problem? There are several other people in my organization that use this tool and have the same problem. Thanks!

The , (comma) and .(period) are not matching to "\b" so when they will not be highlighted. I had a local fix and also some enhancements to hightlight tooltips and selection options. Is there any github?

  • (2022-06-01, v:5.3.1) Michael Rozinsky: NEW FEATURE
    Is there a way to add a greater than or less than feature when locating prices? for exmple i want to highlight "Rolex 116500LN" Your software highlights "Rolex 116500LN" then when a price next to the word "Rolex 116500LN" pops up lets say "$36000" or "$35000" the system also has the ability to highlight numbers below $38000. Right now you can only highlight specific words but it would be great if they can also highlight number less than or great than when making a purchase.
  • (2022-05-26, v:5.3.1) Koen Swinkels: List of words + links to open
    This is a great extension. I think its functionality could be expanded relatively easily, though, by having two columns in the list that users can feed the extension: one with the words to highlight, and one with the URL associated with each word. Currently, the user has to add a URL manually, word by word. But if the user can do it in bulk, much more becomes possible. For example, I have a database with 20,000 names, each associated with a unique URL where the user finds more information about the person or organization associated with that name. Currently, the extension highlights the word when it occurs on a page but unless I add 20,000 URLs manually, word by word, I can't make it open the associated URL.
  • (2022-05-25, v:5.3.1) Robert Baran: Can this extension handle more complex Regex commands?

    Hi! I use this extension A LOT for managing tight deadlines in an internal page at the company I work with and it works WONDERS under certain circumstances, which I can't figure out just yet. All I know is that when I open the page (which looks like this: https://portal.project.company.com/offers), the higlighting doesn't work. So I go to the limitations page, and see that the pages listed there have been stripped of their "https://" part. I put it back in and voilà, it starts working again. Any idea on how I can get the "https://" part to stay in the limitations list? Also, maybe that's not the issue at all. Would you knidly help me out? Thanks a lot! A happy user

  • (2022-03-31, v:5.3.1) David Fitzpatrick: Some issues with Dark Reader extension
    I don't know which of the extensions could be coded to fix this. Dark Reader changes the colours injected by Highlight This. I have some rules that make unimportant text less prominent (light grey on white). When Dark Reader makes changes it will make recolour the text and make the contrast much stronger. It either changes dark text lighter or leaves light text alone. Even normal highlights get darkened so a bright yellow highlight can end up dull. Perhaps some kind of priority of Highlight This over Dark Reader?
  • (2022-03-30, v:5.3.1) Jim Shliferstein: Color-coded words sometimes "stick"
    First of all, I love the Highlight This extension -- thanks for your great work. I wanted to call your attention to a bug just in case it's an easy fix. On at least two websites, highlighted words "stick around" after the page is refreshed. Suppose the first video on YouTube.com is named "Cory Booker addresses CBS". That triggers my Highlight This list which color-codes the names of US legislators to tell me their party affiliations, so the words "Cory Booker" appear in blue: so far, so good. But then I watch a video (that one or any other) and return to the front page of YouTube.com. Now the first video it wants to show me is called "Three Easy Tricks For Doing Your Laundry." But instead, it displays as "Cory BookerThree Easy Tricks For Doing Your Laundry". The highlighted words remain highlighted, and remain present, after they should have vanished. The problem goes away if I navigate to a different webpage altogether and then back to www.youtube.com. The other site where I've encountered the same problem is pushbullet.com, where text messages ported to my browser sometimes get attached to the color-coded remnants of different text messages. I'm on Windows 11, Chrome Version 99.0.4844.82, though this issue has been going on for several version updates now. Many thanks again!

    I have been using Highlight This! for quite some time now by using a Google Sheet to highlight profanity. It has stopped working in the last few weeks and I've tried every fix I can think of! When I try to add the sheet, I get this error: https://cdn.makemesolutions.co.uk/ztMTK Could you please advise me on how to fix the issue? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I installed your extension on my Chrome Version 98.0.4758.109 (Official Build) (x86_64) on Mac OS Monterey 12.1, even if it's on and not paused the Default group with checked words inside, it does not highlight words as expected. Can you help me?

  • (2022-01-21, v:5.3.1) David O'Shea: To open click in iFrame not new Tab.
    In the action tab the option is to open on click in a new tab. It would be great if the target could be set to a particular iFrame on the page. Thanks

  • (2022-01-21, v:5.3.1) Charles Magnuson: Broken link on your Help page and a problem with the extension
    Issue #1: The 'Vote now for your favorite feature' link on your Help page is broken. The URL it points to will not load successfully. Issue #2: I use your extension on pages where it's possible to see over 1,000 highlighted pieces of text on the page. When I navigate to these pages, Chrome loads the full page quickly but then the page completely freezes for up to 10-15 seconds while the Highlight This extension searches the page for elements to highlight. For this period of time, I can't do anything. I just have to sit and wait, staring at the screen. It would be really nice if Highlight This wouldn't freeze up like this. Instead, it would be great if Highlight This could do its processing in batches. That way the amount of processing the extension has to do at one time will be small, preventing the extension from causing the Chrome browser to freeze up.

    A week ago this extension was working flawlessly, but now it won't work in Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi, nor Firefox. Nothing is highlighted. What is going on?
  • (2021-12-23, v:5.3.1) Daisy Flowers: copy/paste
    Im curious what good is it (obviously only for my purpose) if i cant copy and paste the highlighted selections. I think I have spent enough time looking for the option before contacting so unless i missed something then that's a suggestion it would be extremely valuable particularly with the * wild card option it would be a game changer and i am using firefox/google browser if that matters
  • (2021-12-23, v:5.3.1) Manfred Prokop: Help
    I downloaded the extension, and I do have an (well, a lot) HTML page that I would like to scan with word lists, but I don't know how to do that because there is no help file. Please help, I would very much like to have this tool. Manfred
