  • (2021-08-16) J M E: Great addition to pad out missing (and obvious) functionality in Chrome. One minor point. Would be nice to install with mailto:// protocol as the default. Thank you for the work. Much appreciated.
  • (2021-04-06) Banya Rola: I have used this for years with no problems...
  • (2021-03-13) M I: Send from Gmail (by Google)を使っていたけれどそれより良い。 宛先を設定しておけるから、ショートカットキーで起動、送信で完了する。 それにGmailは起動に時間がかかるけれど、これでGmailを使って送信してもそんなに長くかからない。
  • (2021-01-21) Paul Van Cotthem: Superb extension. This functionality should be included in every browser. FEATURE SUGGESTION: Many URLs contain metadate information at the end of the URL, after the question mark (“?”). This metadata typically contains info such as the source from where the user clicked the URL, or other information which is superfluous when sharing the link with someone else. In some cases, this metadata info could potentially even reveal info about the sharer of the info. My request is to add an option to your extension to strip away all unnecessary metadata information characters in the shared link which are to the right of, and including, the question mark. Here’s an example of the original URL, including the unnecessary metadata as of the question mark and everything to the right of it: • https://www.coolblue.be/nl/mobiele-telefoons/smartphones/samsung/samsung-galaxy-s21-ultra?cmt=c_a,cid_12058654079,aid_118027144522,tid_aud-918309158136 And this is what it should become, the URL to share via your extension to e-mail: • https://www.coolblue.be/nl/mobiele-telefoons/smartphones/samsung/samsung-galaxy-s21-ultra Thanks for considering my request.
  • (2021-01-19) Mad Dog: Exactly what I needed. Supports all the major email targets. Nicely done!
  • (2021-01-09) George Papadimitriou: Works so much better than the native Send from Gmail (by Google) app - LMFAO
  • (2020-11-13) Jorge L.: no nel pastel xd
  • (2020-07-28) Taerie Bryant: It was working perfectly, but lately it will not send links as clickable. I've tried removing and reinstalling but nothing fixes the issue. It's a shame as it was a great extension.
  • (2020-07-19) Richard Atami: Used to work perfectly and then it stopped around the time of Catalina (however, I did not upgrade to it because my computer is too old for it so that may have something to do with it). Not sure why it would, though, if other extensions continued to work without a problem
  • (2020-03-14) LUNWEN ZHANG: Great extension. But it hasn't caught up with the Outlook.com and Office 365 new web version. Still using old mailbox to share link. Please consider changing it. Thanks.
  • (2020-01-23) Jeff Kart: works - just added to microsoft edge 2020
  • (2020-01-09) Willem Van Cotthem: Best extension to send a link to a web page via the preferred mail app.
  • (2020-01-02) Lorraine Wielgus: Works great for me using AOL webmail.
  • (2019-10-07) Christopher Wilde: simple - does what it says i use for my gmail
  • (2019-08-16) Len Kowalik: June 2018 Really like this, but it stopped bringing up my contacts. From other reviews I suspect that is due to changes in Chrome. August 2019 Old Chromebook dies. Went looking for this on a new CB, not knowing the name. Difficult to find in the store, but tried some others while doing so. None are as good as this one.
  • (2019-08-11) Mama Sha OC: Works beautifully with Gmail. It does just what it claims to do - allows you to share a URL via email. Too bad Chrome doesn't offer a "share" option automatically. Kind of weird.. Anyway, thanks!
  • (2019-06-01) S.V. Prior: I'm an avid sender of links to a whole variety of things on the internet - so this is really useful - when I want to email something. Brilliant! Works like a dream.
  • (2019-05-29) darth pixel: that's exactly what i was looking for
  • (2019-05-18) Judyth Hulford: Please add protonmail as one of the choices. Thx.
  • (2019-03-13) Kathleen Douglas: Works great! Wish it would use my email client instead of a web service but it is better that using the default email client that came with Mac OS X.
  • (2019-02-26) Bob Jacobson: This stopped working for me with the most recent version of Mojave. Is it obsolete? 32-bit?
  • (2019-02-22) P Schmied: a new Does what it is supposed to do, with one exception. If Gmail is the client and "Open as new window" is selected sending a link opens a new tab, not a window.
  • (2019-02-17) Kevin Kelly: one of the only ones that you can control which way it's mailed, default mail program, gmail aol mail etc. AND it let's you control the message subject, Prefill the to address, and body of email before and after the link in default optins.
  • (2019-02-12) Scott C: WORKS PERFECTLY!!!! I have been very grumpy/angry for months about Chrome's missing Right Click > Send Link option. I ran across this add-in, and I could not be happier. It literally took 5 seconds to install, did not require a browser or windows restart, and works perfectly with Outlook on Windows. In addition to the new right click option, there's also a new button to the right of the address bar that has the same email option. Yea!!!!
  • (2018-11-11) This is a great app. It allows Chrome to do one of the basic things that the Microsoft Edge browser does right out of the box, but... When choosing Outlook.com, it opens a link to a deprecated version of Outlook. It needs to be updated as the recent beta version went to mainstream release. and... When opening an new email, it just drops an anchor tag (i.e. link) and that's about it. Many apps will create a small teaser frame showing a photo and title of the page that we're sending. Outlook.com does that for example. These two improvements would make it five stars.
  • (2018-10-24) Arne Harder: Fast and easy. Exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks!
  • (2018-08-23) i East: Great app, does what as it name. Simple and easy to use.
  • (2018-07-23) avenue n shop: Might be a Linux thing but it stopped working on one of my computers. Re-installing didn't correct problem Other computer still works, one computer uses Peppermint Linux other uses LXLE (working) both use Thunderbird mail client
  • (2018-06-25) Peter Blue: Well done. I only use it with the Default mail Client setting and it works perfectly.
  • (2018-05-31) Jen Cate S: Ottimo, nelle opzioni decidi con cosa vuoi spedire il link (io ho selezionato solo gmail) e addirittura preimpostare un destinatario. Vai sulla pagina da inviare, clicchi sull'icona dell'estensione e parte la mail, più semplice di così! Peccato che Chrome sia sempre indietro rispetto a Firefox e non ce l'abbia di default questa impostazione.
  • (2018-05-26) Fiona: I used to have this extension and for no obvious reason it stopped working; have just deleted it from my chromebook and reinstalled from scratch; all well again, and it finds my outlook contacts too with no problem
  • (2018-05-20) Patrice Marcelli: Ne fonctionne pas avec Outlook 2010 (23/5/2017) OK à nouveau (20/5/2018)
  • (2018-04-12) Aaron Kadel: Well done, well done. Works like I want it to by opening email with the link to the site I'm sharing.
  • (2018-03-17) J Gillman: EDIT 17 March 2018: for some reason it now only works if I have "All Email Senders" selected. End of edit. Right now it's the only extension like this that works with Chrome and Outlook... something changed in Chrome that stopped other simpler extensions from working. This one does take some extra clicks, and leaves one with an empty frame that must be closed, but it works, and I like that it's configurable. It would be even better if it would include highlighted text from the page you wish to send. I'm still searching for the perfect mail sender: click once and it starts an email with my default mail client with the title of the page as the subject, the highlighted text included in the message body in quotes, followed by "From:" and the URL. This extension is pretty close.
  • (2018-03-07) Angelo Bonet: Recently stopped working with Outlook.com. Now just opens the site without preparing an email.
  • (2018-02-15) Shaun O'Connell: It just works using Outlook 2013. Thanks
  • (2018-02-01) Uwe G: Thanks, good idea!

Latest issues

  • (2022-08-15, v:3.2.7) Byronomo: Return to browser tab containing the shared link.
    When I use this extension to send a link from my browser with multiple tabs open, it correctly places the link into a new Outlook e-mail message. However, after I enter the recipients and hit "send", I am then ALWAYS taken to the most-recently opened tab in my browser--even if that's not the tab from which the link came. So let's say that I have 20 tabs open and I am browsing in tab #6 and utilize this extension. After I send the e-mail, it takes me back to tab #20 rather than #6 (the source of the link). How can I get this extension to return to the correct tab?
  • (2022-08-02, v:3.2.7) Cain Chen: great extension

  • (2021-05-16, v:3.2.7) Ash: open in new tab if email service is web-browser based
    Please have option (or just make change) so that when you active mailto it opens in new tab (if using browser email service like I do - fastmail). I find it quite irritating that it opens in same tab and when I go back to the clip - for example - have to start all over etc. Much better if the email opens in new tab. Thanks.

  • (2021-04-08, v:3.2.6) D. Paul Dalton: Make extension open/use only one email tab in Chromebook?
    I love & regularly use this extension - thanks very much for making it! I have both a business & a personal email account, so I normally use MS Outlook (local, not web) to manage them in a single place. As I recall, when I'm using Chrome in Windows, this extension actually calls the Outlook application itself to handle the email. However, it doesn't work that way on the Chromebook. I believe that's a limitation in Chrome, not your extension. But I'm pleased that in Chromebook it opens Yahoo.com in a tab, because that's the account I want to use anyway. However, one thing seems a bit wasteful of resources - and maybe it can't be helped - but when I use the extension more than once during a Chrome session on Chromebook, I've noticed that it opens/creates an additional new Yahoo.com tab for each use, so sometimes find 10+ Yahoo.com tabs open. It seems like each additional of these Yahoo.com tabs must be requiring even more system resources! So I wonder whether it might be possible for this extension to "know" whether there's already a tab open for Yahoo.com &, if so, to use it for sending that email, instead of actually opening a new Yahoo.com tab for sending every email. Again, super useful extension! Thanks, Paul Paul Dalton Grapevine, TX

    A computer tech had me clear all my history and caches and now your share tool wants to use Windows Mail instead of Outlook.
