Description from store An extension to copy the text content of hyperlinks with right click (<a>outerText</a>). When a user invokes the context menu, right clicks, and selects item "Copy Hyperlink Text" chrome will open a prompt dialog so the user may manually copy the text within a hyperlink For example> <a href="https://www.google.com/&#34;>GOOGLE</a> And also <a href="https://www.google.com/&#34;><span>GOOGLE</span></a> Among other tag combinations Copy Hyperlink Text will prompt the user to copy the text "GOOGLE" in a chrome prompt dialog - Copy Hyperlink Text uses the google chrome prompt dialog allowing the user to manually copy text - Copy Hyperlink Text does not automatically copy to the clipboard on a native operating system (it's a sandbox javascript limitation) - I will automatically copy to the native clipboard once javascript has a standardized way to access the operating system clipboard - Copy Hyperlink Text does not copy text inside or nested in <iframe> elements. I lost the "which element loads first war" and chrome doesn't support event listener frame loading, boo. When chrome adds support for this I'll attempt to have this extension work inside html frames

  • (2020-02-03) Abigail Mills: definitely did not work for me, even if it somehow is usable it is far too complicated

  • (2017-07-11) Stephen S: Don't see the need for the popup. Defeats the propose of quickly copying the text which you can do if you're careful. Also, doesn't grab all url texts either. e.g. https://www.traxsource.com/
  • (2015-05-07) Portland Luggage: Somewhat usable. It would be better if it just copied the hyperlink text, as the name of this extension implies it would. Instead, when selecting the "Copy Hyperlink Text" from the right click menu, I get a pop-up window with the text that I can then copy. I recommend using "Copy as plain text" extension until this one is improved. -Update- This extension blocks my ALT+TAB ability, I am uninstalling... Too bad, it almost works.
