  • (2019-06-18) Jonah Wong: Lovely extension. Custom directory support would be nice.
  • (2019-05-07) Nils Lindemann: Very good. Especially i like that i can manually set the file name in the save dialog and that there is an option to include the source url at the top of the text file.
  • (2019-02-18) Max Rempel: Doesn't work at all
  • (2019-01-05) Arthur Godiva: I wish it had the option to just save the url with an empty note and nothing but the url as the note contents.

  • (2019-09-29, v:2.0) eva sza: smooth work with text
    I would like to mention that it would be a great facilitation for writers if we could choose the option that allows the exported text to be always saved in one and the same document.
  • (2018-04-30, v:0.1) G. Mok: Save directory
    The saved text file will not change to a different location. It will not even ask for location most of the time.
  • (2018-02-18, v:0.1) Sergey Kalabin: Last downloaded file location option
    Hi! Your extension is very useful! Thanks a lot! But I would like to ask for one little modification) As i have to download a lot of files and put a description next to them in a text file, it would be a huge time saver if I could save that text file to the same directory where the last downloaded file was saved. Can you please add such an option? Thanks again!

    Can the source code be made available for examination?
  • (2017-12-25, v:0.1) Frank Kurka: Why browser history?
    Why does this app need to access browser history?
