  • (2022-02-19) Pavan Ty: hello the extension is good but it doesn't work for iframe please look into it
  • (2022-02-01) Raed Ali: Amazing extension, people with problems just reload the page (if it was there before you added the extension).
  • (2021-12-18) Juliusz Hebanowski: On some sites (like discord) when it doesn't work, you can't select any text at all. Unfortunately I don't see chrome giving me an option to disable extensions on some specific sites, I can only enable it on specific sites. If wish there would be an option to just disable it from specific sites like for example you can do with AdBlock.
  • (2021-07-30) Anushka Kharade: It is amazing! Perfect for me. It has good amount of controls to get the exact highlight color that you want. It's simple to use, so I like it. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because it doesn't work in all the websites (though it works in most). By now Wix is the only website in which the 'Selection Colors' wasn't working. Thank you so much for this extension!

  • (2019-11-14) amol mahajan: perfect ;) Just fix bugs and make it compatible with uBlock Origin and Dark Reader.
  • (2019-11-03) Isaac “PhysX” Clarke: Absolutely perfect, extremely brutal extension !!! Very useful !!! Great job !!!
  • (2019-06-16) Mr Wolf: I had a lot of trouble viewing highlights on my Chromebook, this resolved it perfectly.
  • (2018-09-30) Clem Moore: Ublock doesn't play nice with this - as in disables it and requires some tinkering to get on the whitelist. Otherwise this extension works wonderfully and is exactly what I was looking for. Namely as a companion extension to Dark Reader, since its dynamic setting at the moment doesn't always really work very well at keeping text selection visible... it basically makes it next to impossible to see the the blue highlight over the text. Anyway, I've now set up a swanky orange highlight color with turquoise font coloring, which works wonderfully on dark backgrounds.

  • (2018-04-04, v:1.3) Lorne Wolf MacKenzie: Instructions are Lacking...
    The description reads 1 way yet the actual "attempt" to use this app has yielded nothing even close to what you described. Am sure am missing something... The page that opens with the Options Tab & other Controls' is supposed to be a testing area? Or is it the instructions on how to use?
  • (2018-03-16, v:1.3) Eyal Fine: Doesn't Work
    This extension only seems to work in the Options tab of the extension setting and no where else. Please advise.
