Description from extension meta

Go to parent address. Use Alt+Up (Shift = +1, Ctrl = +2 levels) or click the icon (many times = many levels).

Image from store NavigUp
Description from store Navigate to parent address. It means removing page anchor (#xxx), query string (?xxx), file or the last directory (/xxx), port number (:xxx), sub-domain (xxx.) or secure layer (https -> http), whichever is first found (preserving mentioned order). You can use the mouse and click NavigUp's icon (present on the right side of the address bar) or go with the keyboard and press one of the supported shortcuts. == Shortcuts == Use (Ctrl+)(Shift+)Alt+Up for it. Shift means going up one more level, Ctrl - additional two levels. Ctrl and Shift can be combined. If you click extension's icon (in the address bar) many times within one third of second, then you'll go up many levels at once. == Permissions == 1. "Access your data on all websites." (content script executed when URL matches "http://*/*";, "https://*/*";, "ftp://*/*") Content script is used only for catching keyboard shortcuts (commands API doesn't support Ctrl+Alt combinations) and setting up a popup (if it is turned on). 2. "Access your tabs and browsing activity." ("tabs" permission) "tabs" permission is a broad one, but it is used only for accessing or modifying particular tab's URL within background page. == File scheme == If you install NavigUp from Chrome Web Store, then it's not supported. However, some users browse occasionally local file system using Chrome to load some files. NavigUp is also very useful in this case, but setting content script to match also file: addresses gives you following message during installation: "This extension will have full access to your computer and private data." File scheme is supported only in the version hosted at my website. == Changed name == Older version of this extension was called "GoUp". I came up with this name and I liked it, because it was the simplest self-explanatory title. I published the extension in November 2009 on my site and chromeextensions.org. Back then, as a Uppity user, I wasn't aware of the another Firefox add-on doing same job. That add-on is called Go Up. I don't like reusing already existing names, especially by similar projects, so decision about renaming was obvious solution for this unpleasant situation. Later I also found out, that a few weeks after my announcement of GoUp, Christophe Benz created (according to his GitHub repository first commit was authored on December 11, 2009) "Go Up" extension (notice the space between Go and Up, so it’s the exact name of existing Firefox add-on). Thus I was even more convinced that changing name was the right thing. == License == Extension's code is licensed under Affero GPL v3. Icon is licensed under GPL v2. == Credits == Icon is done by Marco Tessarotto and it's part of Ultimate Gnome icon theme. https://sites.google.com/site/ultimate-gnome/

  • (2018-02-09) Rodney: Does not work as described. I want it to remove a query string. Instead it's removing the string and going up three levels.

  • (2019-01-22, v:0.4.0) Aaron Oliver: A feature request and a possible bug
    I like this extension. It's nice and compact and has a clean interface, and it mostly does exactly what I want. Except it doesn't always open the popup that lets me select the level I want to go up to, despite having selected that option (I always want the popup). The chrome web store is one example of a site where this happens. If I click NavigUp here, it automatically goes up a level instead of allowing me to select. Another instance where this happens if when I encounter certain page loading errors, such as if a site is dead, or if I cannot establish a secure connection (due to me being on XP!). For example, this old dead site from my bookmarks causes NavigUp to automatically go up instead of producing the popup selection: http://www.berzerk.co.uk/gp32/ I know it seems like it would be moot to try and go up various levels on a dead site, but I may want to copy a certain address out of Chrome even if the site is dead, AND this is where my feature request comes in. I would like the first option in the popup list to simply convert the current web address to http: instead of https: so that I can attempt to connect without using ssl (again, because WinXP can't handle every site properly using ssl). As it currently stands, only the last address in the popup list allows me to select http rather than https, but that requires me to go all the way up to the root domain instead of the current address. Some default https sites will still work in XP (which is limited to Chrome 49) by making that change. So in short: 1. Make sure the popup always shows, even for dead sites or error URLs. 2. Make the first entry in the popup simply be switching from https to http at the current address (though I wouldn't complain if it was the last entry in the list either, if that would be less of an interference) I'm not sure if or when you may check this, but thanks anyway for creating this extension.
  • (2016-08-18, v:0.4.0) Alexi Grigoriadis: Consider moving the icon
    I just got the extension and its working great - but the screenshots on the Web Store show it going in the address field (where all of the text is), whereas on my Chrome it is appearing to the right of it. I would much prefer it to be in the address field - could you add an option for this? This way, it won't clutter up the bit to the right of the field.
  • (2016-01-01, v:0.4.0) Code repository?
    Would you be willing to put the code for NavigUp into a public repository like GitHub? It's such a nice extension, but I'm always apprehensive when I see the warning "can read and change all your data on all the websites you visit"... I understand that those permissions may be required for NavigUp to do its job, but an alternate way of getting and auditing the code would help a lot. If you've already done that, could you adjust the description to include the repository URL? TYVM
  • (2013-08-13, v:0.3.0) Carl Schell: Auto Nav Up on specified url
    It would be a cool feature if you added the ability to define URLs where if you open that URL in a tab, it would automatically navigate up. In the options, you could have a place to define the specific url and also the action to perform.
