What is Free Auto Text Expander?
The 'Free Auto Text Expander' is a Chrome extension that helps save time and reduce typos by creating and utilizing custom keyboard shortcuts. It functions like TextExpander for Mac or AutoText for Windows, but is installed and synced across all your Chrome browsers. By adding basic JavaScript to your pages, it checks if your last set of keystrokes matches any of the custom shortcuts you've defined and automatically expands that text as you type.
