  • (2023-07-30) Felix Grebenstein Fachinformatiker: I was searching for a highlighter like this that works with just one click. The other highlighting extensions didn't do what I wanted. If only I would have found your extension earlier because I already programmed my own before I found this. I totally understand that it doesn't work on all pages as I have written my own extension and it works on the pages yours works on, but not on the ones yours doesn't. So it is just a limitation for now I guess, not sure if it can be fixed.
  • (2023-05-20) Ty Buchanan: You save the webpage with a shortened URL. When you click it you are taken to a copy of the original webpage with the highlighted text, but there is a damn nuisance banner across the top of the page - useless. Get rid of the banner!
  • (2023-02-13) Michael: Das Markieren fällt sehr einfach und durch den Markerknopf ist er schnell zur Hand. Leider musste ich die App bewerten, da ich meine Texte sonst nicht weiter markieren konnte.
  • (2022-08-18) 전예진: don't work.
  • (2022-07-30) Zen Jundi: don't work
  • (2022-05-27) DBOS @yoleo.org: Click on extension, gives message that it is loading and never loads :(
  • (2022-01-21) Rogerio M. Souza: Very good! Super practical. But it doesn't work anymore. When returning to bookmarks, it does not highlight the selected text.

  • (2021-10-17) Silas Rodrigues: O aplicativo é bom, porem limitado, consigo dermarcar os texto, porem caso erre ou queira apagar, aparentemente é algo impossivel de se fazer, ja tentei de todas formas possiveis porem se demonstrou ser algo que não está presente atualmente na extensão...
  • (2021-02-10) Ro: Didn't work on my devices. Tried to reinstall it, but that didn't help.
  • (2020-11-09) Elisabeth Castleton (Ellie): I wasn't aware that if the page closed, all the highlights would disappear. My pages were all acidentally closed and all of the highlighting i did to help with my assignment was gone. Not helpful.
  • (2020-11-05) Max Rempel: It mixed up normal selection behavior -it is a nasty bug in version 1.8.2. Deselect with mouse stopped working. Nov 4, 2020. I have many extensions and had to disable them one by one to find this sneaky nasty extension. And since it is at the end of the alphabetical list, I tested it last.
  • (2020-10-13) Beyza Nur Çakır: It doesn't work on doc. pages considering that it would be helpful for academic readings
  • (2020-10-06) Cameron Daye: Just click it and use it. Easy and exactly what I want.
  • (2020-09-16) Marco Salgado: Muito bom obrigado....
  • (2020-09-07) Xinyue Huang: Tried several extensions for highlighting text on web pages. This one finally worked.
  • (2020-09-04) Mima Lavez: era excelente, mas agora não consigo apagar o que eu grifei.
  • (2020-09-02) Shannon Rogers: When I click on it, it doesn't activate. Frustrating.
  • (2020-08-21) Pranav Pillai: It is a handy extension. I have been using it for so long, only because there are no other alternatives. I just find it annoying that the pop-ups are always there. also I wish it was possible to undo highlights. Sometimes I accidentally highlight wrong words and so I would have to refresh the entire page thereby deleting all of the highlights I have done so far. Finally, it would be better if the highlights were saved not in marker.to's archive but rather in my own drive. I would always have to save the bookmark of that highlighted page and sometimes it takes forever to load. Overall, it is an extension with so much potential. It just needs to improve on certain aspects. I hope to see it improve in the future
  • (2020-07-30) Hamy 72: It exceptional tool at first until you realize it does not have an undo function or a delete highlighted portion, which is such a bummer! It so easy to drag the mouse right across the whole page and in one single move you can make hours of effort of highlighting the page absolutely useless. Please put an undo button, till then its a dangerous tool...
  • (2020-07-27) Shiwangee Awasthee: this is not good extension...i have faces many problem during to study
  • (2020-07-19) Tweety Kid: I like this. It is great when you figure out how to use it! Here are instructions on how to use it with a PC... When you highlight text on a page, the highlight doesn't remain on the page. But you can easily find the page and highlights again. If you right click on your highlighter icon in the Chrome bar (at the top of the page), a drop down list appears. Choose "options". In a split second you are at another page with two links. Choose the second link that says, "visit your highlighted pages". Now you see a convenient list of the page titles where your highlights are. Just click on the link you want and it takes you to the page with highlights showing. It is a great library of your links. So easy to use. Efficient for navigating to a particular page with highlights. AND, you can add tags to the pages in the list. It is exactly what I wanted.
  • (2020-07-16) Un humano: Es uno de los pocos que me ha funcionado (este el el cuarto que intente) Los contras: Siempre que resaltas algo te deja un anuncio pequeño en la parte superior izquierda de la pantalla (lo puedes quitar, no es permanente, pero si aparecerá cada vez que resaltes algo) No se guardan las partes resaltadas si cierras la pagina Los pros: Si por accidente resaltas todo y terminas resaltando otra vez lo que ya habías resaltado anteriormente, solo basta con que vayas hasta el principio del texto resaltado para darle en la X, te desharás de todo el texto que acababas de resaltar sin perder lo que ya habías resaltado antes Tiene 7 colores diferentes incluyendo el amarillo Puedes deshacerte de los anuncios por un año con 10 dolares.
  • (2020-07-10) Tushar Lal: The only highlighter extension that works for me.
  • (2020-07-09) CyberKaze: Doesn't work
  • (2020-04-13) Konrad Rose: so good
  • (2020-03-30) isha mahipal: Tried a few, first one that worked, simple and pleasing to use
  • (2020-03-14) Matilde Augusta Oviedo: super functional but sometime it doesnt work randomly on certain web pages
  • (2020-03-12) Alan O: doesnt work
  • (2020-03-04) Justin Dillon: Simply doesn't work. Installed and then immediately removed it since it didn't work.
  • (2020-02-09) Samuel Wolfville: It works pretty much how I need it and is free no adds or anything and is very simple to use!
  • (2020-01-30) obie morgado: Little tricky at first but work well.. Just what I needed. The other one's that are out there just suck.. you either have to log-in to use it, type in words, or pay to use it... Thank You..
  • (2020-01-24) gajendra singh: this is very nice. I can highlight my important lines or passages in webpage or pdf files......superb
  • (2020-01-04) Sébastien De Wolf: Simple tool, does the trick. Highlight while reading long texts online. I use other tools to really study on pdf or when I need to keep my notes for the future. But for a one time read online, this works perfectly.
  • (2019-11-27) AJAY dayma: Not working
  • (2019-11-08) P N: Very simple and easy, but no ability to annotate.
  • (2019-10-27) P N: EDIT: THIS EXTENSION IS DEAD les liens ne marchent plus, car le site est mort, donc impossible de mettre en favori la page avec le marquage. Devenu inutile. Je m'attendais à un genre de Diigo. C'est pas mal, mais pas très pratique re pour moi. Une fois qu'on surligne, une fenêtre s'ouvre, avec l'url de la page avec le surlignage, on doit le mettre dans nos favoris pour pouvoir réouvrire la page, mais trop de clics à faire, rien n'est facilité.
  • (2019-10-23) FamKis: Absolutely fantastic. Works even on many pages where Diigo fails. The various clear colors available make highlighting and sharing a breeze. This is truly a one-of-a-kind tool. I gladly updated to the fair-priced Pro account.
  • (2019-10-04) Neetu Pal: वेब के लिए पीला हाइलाइटर पेन किसी भी परीक्षा के लिए पूर्ण सॉफ्टवेयर की मदद करता है। लेकिन यह सॉफ्टवेयर फोन में काम नहीं करता है।
  • (2019-09-17) Hélio Giroto: 5 estrelas. Extremamente útil. É só saber explorar! Prática para estudantes, pesquisadores e para quem lê muitos textos. A melhor ferramenta de marcar texto da WEB. Disponível para Chrome, Chromium, e Brave!!! Marca texto de qualquer página da web em diversas cores e (o mais interessante) dá uma URL da mesma página já sublinhada e destacada para ser vista em qualquer computador ou dispositivo que tenha a URL que o marker.to oferece.a
  • (2019-08-26) Emanuel Cederlund: 5 stars!
  • (2019-08-08) daukela: круто, что существуют такие расширения для chrome, но кнопка "donate" жутко бесить)
  • (2019-07-19) jesse g.: i would love it if highlighted sections would reappear when book marked page is opened again.
  • (2019-07-07) White Online: Deixou de funcionar, um lixo.
  • (2019-06-17) Roni buium: Perfect for my purpose!
  • (2019-06-03) Fabri S: Non conosco altre applicazioni, ma questa fa bene il suo lavoro; ce l'ho da molto tempo ormai e continuo ad utilizzarla volentieri. Dopo aver evidenziato, cliccando sul disegno della penna che compare a lato, potete cambiare i colori della evidenziazione.
  • (2019-05-26) Alberto Vaccaroni: fa il suo lavoro
  • (2019-05-09) Alex Smitt: Doesn't work offline.
  • (2019-04-30) Arghya Bormon: works nicely
  • (2019-04-29) dead_pluto: When you close the tab/web page you lose all your highlights.
