  • (2023-01-18) R. R.: Doesn't copy text.
  • (2022-12-24) Jeff Kang: I was using another extension called Copy Link Name, but I think it stopped working for me. This one works fine, thanks.
  • (2022-11-19) Vincent Lee: I use this every day for my papers. Thank you for making such a useful extension!
  • (2022-11-17) Bob Sorensen (Cowboy Bob): Not a long-time user, but found this helpful in several browsers. Since I spend a great deal of time writing weblogs and using graphics, I often need the text and not the link. ("Say thanks to [this user] for the image," which is a link. I have that, but want the name.) This has saved me a great deal of time.
  • (2022-10-25) Viacheslav Lasukov: Not working in Edge Chromium
  • (2022-10-21) Joe Sixpack: I want the previous version back. At least that one works.
  • (2022-10-11) Arafat: Recently it is not working
  • (2022-10-10) Hungvi Nguyen: Recently, when I copy and paste email addresses, it always shows "Press delete or backspace to remove", so I have to delete this sentence to validate my recipients' mails. Please help check and fix this issue. Thank you.
  • (2022-10-10) Jubayer Ahmed: Not working for last few days. Earlier all types of writing could be copied. But currently, only link text can be copied but not other text
  • (2022-10-07) zayer mim: ‪"Copy Link Text"‬ addon was working fine untill today, i used it for a long time, Error message "Service Launcher (Deactivated)" the error is for version 3.0, I uninstalled it, and installed version 2.0 manualy (.crx) file, and works fine. Note: When just got any addon installed, you need to refresh all opened web pages to get it work.
  • (2022-10-06) Justin Mosebach: Incredibly handy!
  • (2022-09-16) Will Lesage: Ça ne fonctionne plus.
  • (2022-08-04) Pat MySecret: It works in a simplistic sense... though maybe you just as well highlight and do a simple copy. I prefer the extension Copy Link which can copy just the link or even the Google Search snippet of info for my purposes.
  • (2022-08-03) Mike De: One-on-a-kind extension that works. Saved me tons of time. thanks.
  • (2022-06-13) Rian Ahammed Rana: It was nice extension. Nowadays it's not working anymore

  • (2022-04-06) Ali Safapour: You have to click the copy link text button for each link twice to work
  • (2022-03-20) Keith Riggle: It simply does not work
  • (2022-02-04) Ricardo Caco (Phoinx): Doesn't work.
  • (2021-11-02) Nas Raihan: IT IS NOT WORKING AT ALL PLS HELP ME OUT
  • (2021-10-19) Tim R,: Funktioniert nicht :-/ Hoffentlich finde ich eine Alternative
  • (2021-09-03) Brent P: Doesn't work on all pages. For example, even on its own page at chrome.google.com/webstore (this page I'm writing this review on at the moment), it's useless. I can do a google search, however, and it works with the results, so sometimes useful, although I predict it'll make me want to throw my laptop out the window very often.
