Description from extension meta

Automatically redirect content based on user-defined rules.

Image from store Redirector
Description from store Redirector is an extension that allows you to specify patterns for pages that should be automatically redirected to other pages. E.g. you always want http://example.com/foo.html to redirect to http://example.com/bar.html. This can be useful for instance to skip confirmation pages after posting messages on message boards, skipping ad pages that appear before you can view content on certain sites, redirecting from http to https on sites where you always want the https version, redirecting from one hostname to another for proxy servers, or just anywhere where it takes you two or more clicks to get to what you want. The extension supports both wildcards and regular expressions in patterns. Regular expressions support capturing parantheses so you could define the pattern: http://foo.com/bar.php\?id=(\d+) and define the redirect as http://bar.com/baz.php?id=$1. In that case http://foo.com/bar.php?id=1234 would automatically redirect to http://bar.com/baz.php?id=1234. Wildcards can also use $1,$2 in the redirect urls, $1 is the contents of the first star match, $2 of the second and so on. Click on the Redirector button next to your address bar to get started adding and editing redirects, and use the Enable/Disable button to quickly disable the addon.

  • (2022-05-18) Justin W: Great when it works! Unfortunately it doesn't for Twitter or Tinder - two of my problem areas...
  • (2022-03-18) Jayme: Not working. The example I set up shows the correct redirect, but does not actually do anything when testing. Update: Another extension worked.
  • (2022-03-06) Shivam Dwivedi: Awesome extension. works flawlessly!
  • (2022-03-03) richar Muñico Samaniego: Nice, Like, good, very good
  • (2022-02-21) Raznaak Takar: It's useful for some sites that changed quite a few times their top level domain (.com, .ru, .me...) and that messed up my favourites. Question though: can someone help me write how to redirect from "watch?v=[video code]" to "youtube.com/watch/watch?v=[video code]"? On some sites, they don't allow for youtube links and people that want to share a video only paste the "watch" part, and I'm getting too lazy to retype "youtube.com/" each time XD
  • (2022-02-07) Arnie97: Awesome
  • (2022-01-19) Vandal Philosopher: Excellent Extension, It allowed me to change chrome pdf viewer to always open pdfs in "Fit to Width" view, unfortunately It doesn't for files.
  • (2022-01-03) Jayk: Good extension, does the job really well!
  • (2022-01-03) Lissa Meade: I love this extension, although it is a bit slow. Super easy to use with the previewer.
  • (2022-01-02) Jakab Gipsz: I'm using the same version on Vivaldi 4.x (Desktop) and on Kiwi (Android), pretty much everything works except redirecting FROM twitter (to a nitter instance) on Vivaldi.
  • (2021-12-08) Timothy Bassett: Does not work
  • (2021-12-08) Mohamad Yahia Youssef: Really like this extension, it's simple and gets the job done. Yesterday I was using redirector to redirect API calls to localhost and was facing CORS errors when there was a preflight or OPTION method. I tried to fix it for hours from the backend side (C# ASP.Net project), then it turned out that no matter what I do redirector won't redirect certain types of HTTP requests (POST + Preflight and OPTIONS) =_= It took me 2 full days to figure out the issue because redirector was working fine when it came to redirecting everything else. Hope this gets fixed.
  • (2021-11-19) Abanoub Aziz: Not sure what's happening with this extension but if I have it on and try to log in to amazon, chrome would stop loading any website until I restart it. After I disabled it I was able to log in to Amazon as normal and every other website would load as normal too.
  • (2021-11-05) Ankit Gaurav: Does its job, perfectly. Thanks to the dev.
  • (2021-10-26) albert velasco: I had 5 elements in a page that required a redirect and I got only 2 of them redirected consistenly.
  • (2021-10-17) Ivan Wong: This is a very good plugin. It is the only tool I found which lets me easily redirect external urls to internal doc links on my Mac. e.g. https://filelink/<internal mac link> to something like file:///Users/Foo/Google Drive/file.pdf If you're new to redirects and regex, take some time to read the docs and study the example redirect.
  • (2021-10-06) Mateusz Kalinowski: It completely doesn't work for me.
  • (2021-10-05) Jason Ho: Simple and does what I'm looking for (redirecting old broken CurseForge urls for Minecraft mods). Thank you!
  • (2021-09-08) Hrafnkell Sigurðsson: The most awesome thing since sliced bread <3
  • (2021-08-21) Steven Siloti: Extension does not work at all. Don't waste you time with it.
  • (2021-08-02) Justin: Never left a review for an extension but once I figured out to just put the same url in "included pattern" it worked perfectly. I like it and it works perfectly. I wanted to redirect to Smile.Amazon.com when I type Amazon.com and that's what it did. Now I will never forget to go to Smile to donate.
  • (2021-07-28) Gulbil Yellowcar: Does not work or do anything. Even when I got some rules apparently doing what I wanted it to do by testing with examples, it never works on actual sites. outside the rule-editor-thing.
  • (2021-07-27) Pinguluk: Not working at all
  • (2021-07-24) esgalmir: просто супер
  • (2021-07-14) Tobias Reifenrath: Fantastic! Thank you so much.
  • (2021-07-13) Alexey Druzhinin: Отлично, то что нужно. Правило выбор аккаунта для google meet. Redirect: ^(https://meet.google.com/)([^?]+)([?]?.*)$ To: $1$2?pli=1&authuser=1
  • (2021-07-08) Carlos Martínez: Not working correctly on Edge. Only if pressing F5 redirects works. If I enter an URL or press a link nothing happens.
  • (2021-06-23) Saksham Garg: Great. Helped me navigate from the new version of Interviewbit to the old version! Thanks a lot!
  • (2021-06-01) Jordan Réjaud: Amazing, works perfectly
  • (2021-05-18) Warmuser: Works perfectly on Google Chrome x64 with latest updates. Thank you!!! :)
  • (2021-05-15) Jack: this isn't working for me in brave. i added: https://youtube.com -> https://youtube.com/feed/subscriptions when i go to https://youtube.com the extension does nothing
  • (2021-04-28) Madhusoodan Pataki: Right now the input is somewhat like a form. But if we can write entries like /etc/hosts it would be great and fast to use. I use this basically as a user level DNS
  • (2021-04-19) Andreas: Works really well except for storage sync, which is unchecked every time I open the extension page no matter how many times I've checked it. I haven't tested whether or not sync actually works anyway though. Definitely worth 5 stars if that's fixed.
  • (2021-04-07) Gideon Beerens: Very cool and working tool, sadly you have to include the protocol (http/https), but also the regular expression future works!
  • (2021-03-15) Sergey Andreev: Работает. Легким движением руки какой-нибудь криво открывающийся nsfw-marked блог с tumblr.com отправляется в cascadr.co, где никто не задает лишних вопросов. Example url: https://www.tumblr.com/safe-mode?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcrazy4highheels.tumblr.com%2Farchive#_=_ Include pattern: https://www.tumblr.com/safe-mode?url=https%3A%2F%2F*.tumblr.com%2F* Redirect to: https://cascadr.co/blogs/$1
  • (2021-02-23) Anthony Morassutti: TYSM THIS WORKS AMAZING Helps a LOT with blocking distracting websites with a custom message without giving away my info. Just like livehosts but I can change it from https to http!
  • (2021-02-05) Jacob Pretorius: It works brilliantly!

  • (2021-01-27) J.Y Jiang: That‘s quite a useful extension!
  • (2021-01-06) Oleg: won't redirect aliexpress.ru - .com
  • (2020-12-26) Mr Moon: Been using it for years, but just today all my redirects got removed for some reason
  • (2020-12-22) Christoffer Olofsson: Some people may think this is to teknikal, but I can't say other than I love it! I guess that means I am a technical person. * What I use it for: Redirect me to a backend/admin page when I by muscle memory opens the root page. * Redirect https://www.youtube.com to https://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions * Probably much more in the future.
  • (2020-12-15) Will Mewett: Great simple extension to help with social media addiction, however not sure why but it doesnt work on twitter, and also can be bypassed by spam clicking on a link to a site that normally redirects.
  • (2020-12-10) student student: it workt
  • (2020-12-09) Abdul Diaz: I've tried everything to get it to work. And nothing. Just a tidbit, if you need an entire manual in order to use your software, maybe it's important to prioritize making it simpler. Great work, but I'll be using Switcheroo.
  • (2020-12-08) Mr. Oleg A. Andreev: Шикарное приложение!!! Свиньи из mail.ru сначала отобрали Вконтакте.у Павла, теперь запустили свои лапы в Алиэкспресс - купили русскоязычную версию. Не хочу чтобы даже копейка из моего кошелька перешла к этим скотам. Огромное спасибо за приложение -- работает как часы!
  • (2020-12-04) Among us: I love it!!! I can use this extension to hack my prodigy game to have a free unlimited membership! five stars!
  • (2020-11-30) Hayden: The only extension which does what I need!
  • (2020-11-22) Artiom Aleinikov: it worked great before but now the redirects seemed to have stopped working lately.. can anybody deny this and instead confirm that it still works for them with the latest chrome updates?
  • (2020-11-20) Urs Bräm: Works great to redirect trello links to the trello app!
