  • (2024-02-21) Agnieszka: helpful
  • (2023-08-15) Rainboweek: Helping sooo much
  • (2023-06-25) Brenda Posh: I really like using this extension and I use it daily. I'm always copying web text to put into emails or documents. Before finding this app, I had to copy and put into notepad and recopy from notepad to be able to have unformatted text. This makes the process so much more simple. It works. Thanks
  • (2023-05-26) Daniel de Lux -: USELESS
  • (2023-05-11) ALEX R M: nada demais
  • (2023-05-11) Ivan Monells: It would help a lot to have an option to keep line breaks
  • (2023-04-14) Kevin: I used this a lot! Glad it exists.
  • (2023-01-05) Porter Stone: Worked the way is supposed too
  • (2022-10-29) Mark French: Does exactly what so many of us need Kudos
  • (2022-09-08) Abdulrahman Mansour: Not bad, it's good!
  • (2022-07-30) KRISPIRACY: Works great with truncated and easy weirdly formatted text. I wish they would make it possible map to a key or action.
  • (2022-07-26) Mihovil Lovric: A very good extension. Resolves lots of headaches I had before.
  • (2022-07-03) Terry Zhang: This is a very useful extension. Many Thanks. As some websites block the right click menu, so is there any possibility adding a menu item that we can copy plain text when we click the icon on the tool bar? The original Copy As Plain Text is Open the website.
  • (2022-06-09) Valerian Jelauc: You need to click many times to "Copy" action to actually copy the text...
  • (2022-02-15) Erwan F.: Sur Chrome dernière version au moment où j'ai testé cette extension, elle ne fonctionnait pas ou pas immédiatement ; il me fallait parfois répéter plusieurs fois la copie pour qu'enfin je puisse copier un texte brut. Et parfois, ça ne voulait pas marcher du tout. Je passe donc à une autre extension plus fiable.
  • (2021-11-22) Григорий Врачёв: Не сохраняет переводы строк
  • (2021-11-05) Ivan Trbulin: It's not working anymore lmao
  • (2021-10-25) Ewen Wallace (CAD bloke): Should be built into Chrome but isn't so THANKS
  • (2021-10-12) Sajith N: It would be great to display it as a pop up menu (like a tool tip) on selecting the desired text, just like the default feature of the Opera browser.
  • (2021-08-16) Tom Miewald: it's simple and easy. A shortcut option would make this 11 stars
  • (2021-07-06) Moshe Felipe: simple
  • (2021-07-05) Biplob Hossan: wow
  • (2021-06-19) Stephen Stewart - CDLE: Works great and saves time. Thank you.
  • (2021-03-26) Kongulu Zulu: This enabled me to save just the text I selected - without all the text added by the publisher. This save lots of time if you saving clips to study later and do not want to have to go through all notes eliminating extraneous text.
  • (2020-10-24) Jezus Mandeiro: Works even in chrome extensions, very impressed, removes hidden format like new paragraphs in the middle of text. 5 Stars*****
  • (2020-09-17) Moka: pretty good
  • (2019-10-16) Jasper Dazoc: Very little memory usage and does as advertised and nothing more. Just what a simple little extension should do. Works perfectly. Great to use with Dark Reaader
  • (2019-06-29) David Hager: Decent. Use it on multiple machines.
  • (2019-04-14) Rikta Begum: nice extension
  • (2018-10-22) Amy B: Works great, doesn't take up a lot of memory, so great little extension. I wish it had a keyboard shortcut, but it's still useful as is.
  • (2018-06-19) Larry Teitelbaum: I used to use "copy without formatting" (offered by Jing) but it mysteriously disappeared from my browser and from the store. This one is a little less convenient to use, but gets the job done.
