Description from store NOTE: If the extension doesn't work for you, please let me know here: http://groups.google.com/group/comment-save and specify the website it's not working on. UPDATE October 2015: -------------------- I haven't worked on this in a long time, but I might start looking at this again. Donation link (no obligation!): ------------------------------ https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&business=shayanj%40gmail%2ecom&lc=US&item_name=Comment%20Save&item_number=CS&currency_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF%3abtn_donateCC_LG%2egif%3aNonHosted As featured on Lifehacker! http://lifehacker.com/5715657/comment-save-keeps-track-of-your-comments-on-the-web Ever written a large post or comment on a website, click submit, only to see your comment get lost in the internet wilderness? Or your tab/window closed somehow before you could submit? Or maybe you just like to keep track of all the posts you made on different websites. Comment Save (CS) helps you keep track of what you have been writing as you type. Icon beside the address bar brings up a window showing you the last post you wrote alongwith a link to the page. Link in the window allows you to view your post history. You can also filter websites where you don't want any of your posts to be tracked (or you can have a white list to only record on specific websites). Works on sites like: - YouTube - Facebook/Twitter/Google+ - Gawker blogs (Gawker/Gizmodo/Jezebel/Lifehacker/etc.) - Engadget/Techcrunch/SlashGear/etc. (Sites which use Disqus/Livefyre) - Wordpress/Tumblr - Forums of all kinds - Digg/Reddit - CNN/New York Times/The Guardian/other news websites - And lots more! FEATURES: ------------------ * Records your post as you type so you can recover it if you lose it. * Keeps a history of all your posts along with a link to the page and the time. * Allows you to add filters so you can disable/enable tracking on certain websites. * Simple checkbox in the popup window enables/disable tracking globally. * User can set timed-deletion of comments. (Delete comments older than specific minutes, days, hours or months) NOTES: ----------- * Refresh any open pages after installation or the extension won't work. * CS saves all your data locally to your machine. It does NOT save any data online nor does it send any of your data anywhere else. So all your posts are only accessible by you. And it doesn't access your browsing history (as Chrome says it is allowed to). * Does not save your username/passwords. It only works on multi-line textboxes. * Saves your email too (for ex. Gmail). If you don't want it to save your email add a filter for that website (mail.google.com and gmail.com) * Won't work on this page because Google doesn't allow extensions to work here.

  • (2018-02-02) Jean Lafitte: I used this extension for many years but now it don't work and I don't know why.
  • (2017-07-18) Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ: it cant save from all websites like youtube, it have a limitation for savings, why it cant saves all comments !!? have it storage space problems ?!
  • (2017-03-01) Mohsen Ali: I think we will love to have an update, its a wonderful tool. Just few days back it saved me again when I had already written a whole paragraph and for some reason a form refreshed itself. Thanks Shayan
  • (2016-09-20) David Lloyd: So far, the only things it has saved are meaningless short responses I have made, like "happy birthday." None of the important comments I have made have been captured by this program, even though I selected the text, and successfully copied the selected text to the clipboard, and demonstrated by my ability to paste the text into NotePad AFTER this program said "No comments saved!" *I'll reevaluate my one-star response if I learn I did something wrong that I should have understood, but for now, I cannot give a good rating to a program that does not do anything useful. *I upgraded my one-star rating to three stars when I read the Feb 28, 2011 review that said this feature quit working with the February 2011 Facebook update.
  • (2015-01-12) Dennis Bareis: I like how you can see all the comments. Deletion is very cryptic, you are unsure what will happen, no other app so cryptic! It doesn't sync state with other computers. No update for a while, will look for one being supported. Not sure yet about how passwords handled, hopefully not captured.
  • (2014-12-11) Gia Amato: absolutely love the comment save extension... all i gotta say is this will come in handy if anyones girl or man is up to no good on the computer.. this will absolutely come in handy for that lol lets just hope everyone is not doing anything wrong or typing something they shouldn't because now this app is out and you're screwed ;]
  • (2014-08-20) Health Wyze Media: Fantastic extension. It helps to prevent lost work and works flawlessly.
  • (2014-03-28) Bill Hogan: Excellent tool. Would LOVE an iPad version.
  • (2013-04-15) Erwin Wu: Not working. Probably outdated as this is 2013. Wish there was a better option as I wasted an hour posting a long response to a thread that provided a lot of insight through my experience. I'm not going to spend the time to rewrite it. Neither this nor Lazaurus (sp?) saved my text. It seems like a pretty easy program that should be a standard feature on Windows.
  • (2013-03-13) 76larsa: Вызывает подозрение алгоритм и механизмы этого расширения. Надеялась, что комментарии будут сохраняться на этапе отправки в форум. Однако ОТМОДЕРИРОВАННЫЕ комментарии не сохраняются. Версия: ВСЕГДА при просмотре сохраненых комментов происходит проверка -существует ли реальная ссылка, при отсутствии таковой коммент удаляется из сохраненных.Т.е. возможно в момент отправки они были где-то и сохранены, но если в интернете администратор сайта сотрет ваши высказывания, не будет реальной ссылки -то и у вас на компьютере следов высказывания не останется. Я, как автор слов, хочу сохранять свои слова на своем компьютере ВНЕ ЗАВИСИМОСТИ от модерации. Это расширение бесполезно.
  • (2013-02-08) Gary Katz: Mr. Javed, Your Comment-saver has been a Life-saver for me...for research, backup if I lose data and on and on. It baffles why there are not more people using this effective, efficient...but> I am no ingrate, so I just wanted to thank you and express my gratitude for your brilliant implementation of an idea I had wished for....for many, many years. I shall recommend to all my students and family, as well as colleagues. Thank you so much, sir. Respectfully- Dr. Gary K.
  • (2013-01-17) David Guerra: I like this, but it seems like it is only saving comments from certain sites, because commenting on obscure sites doesn't get saved.
  • (2012-12-19) Wi Suny: it was okay
  • (2012-03-27) theyaretheconspiracy: As a dedicated "Citizen News analyst" this tool is invaluable. It has worked on 95% of the sites I comment or write for. If you comment on stories from portals like Yahoo this is the app for you. It's so much easier to reply to comments because of Yahoos inability to "keep its servers functioning". This will take you to a working link 99% of the time. I can't suggest this App enough, this is a must have app if you are an avid commentator. It would be great ifit took you directly to your comment but I understand why it doesn't I think? Thank you Shayen.
  • (2012-02-27) Pierre E: First test to see if it works dand it looks to not work on this webstore ;)
  • (2012-02-14) Rashid Malik: Thanks Shayan for such a useful extension. Been looking for something like that. Rashid Malik (PAA)
  • (2012-02-12) 성현: Awesome!!

  • (2016-09-20, v:0.6.4) David Lloyd: Troubleshooting notes--doesn't track Facebook comments
    I captured Chrome's debug information from the page that won't clip: Handling of 'mousewheel' input event was delayed for 451 ms due to main thread being busy. Consider marking event handler as 'passive' to make the page more responsive. Stop! This is a browser feature intended for developers. If someone told you to copy-paste something here to enable a Facebook feature or "hack" someone's account, it is a scam and will give them access to your Facebook account.

  • (2016-05-09, v:0.6.4) viva F: doesn't track comments on certain articles
    is there a way to track all comments? if it doesnt track a comment on a certain news article for example,will it not track if i add the site to whitelist? if so, should i just add all sites i writes comments manually on the white list?
  • (2015-10-30, v:0.6.4) ambr r: doesn't work on YouTube?
    really that's the only place or the place I comment the most, that & Google+, haven't yet tried Google+ to see if it works with that, but it's not on YT? & that's really the only reason I'd want to use this type of extension/servie
  • (2015-10-12, v:0.6.4) Gina Davis: Fantastic extension
    I use it in to keep up with traffic that is generated from blogs I comment on. It's a great research tool. When you decide to work on this again, here are a few things that I would enjoy with it. 1. The ability to archive comments to a spreadsheet or Google drive. 2. The previously named - Search Function that allows delete of a group of comments or to archive those group of comments. Thanks.
  • (2015-09-03, v:0.6.4) Chris Harper: Doesn't work for Youtube
    Tried it on a few sites, and it worked. Unfortunately, doesn't work on Youtube.
  • (2015-01-01, v:0.6.4) Gretzky Crosby: search
    1. is there a search function? 2. where can I donate? 3. please update the extension:)

  • (2014-06-28, v:0.6.4) NorxMAL: Only saves one comment per page
    It doesn't save multiple comments per page with the facebook comment section. Specifically this sites http://www.vg.no/nyheter/innenriks/tirsdag-blir-dette-forbudt/a/23242300/ if that helps :) One wish I have, if you wish to use it, is perhaps auto expand collapsed comments (if that is the right term(possible solution can be strip the code which makes them collapse)), either if one has a comment written that becomes hidden or all of them, but auto expand all is sufficient enough for me :) I'm not sure any other extension provides this or not. Not sure if clicking on the comment through the extension button can go to the tab it was saved through and scroll down to it, is possible? If tabs has unique id's (or using the tab webpage title) and using a text search function on hidden text as well rather than just visible text, which Chrome does, might do the trick? Keeping track of comments has become time consuming, and being able to find them faster would be nice :) I hope I explained myself good enough :) Thanks :)
  • (2014-01-09, v:0.6.4) Andrew Conners: filter for sub domains/websites
    Your extensions is awesome on every aspect, but one issue is that it saves every single line of Facebook chat causing a huge history and wasted lines! I made a filter: facebook.com/messages/ facebook.com/messages www.facebook.com/messages/ www.facebook.com/messages https://facebook.com/messages/ https://facebook.com/messages https://www.facebook.com/messages/ https://www.facebook.com/messages still it captures my chat unless i filter all comments on facebook.com which i don't want! any solution? mr.riddler1 AT gmail
