The extension icon becomes active when the page has Canonical URL, and click it to change URL in the address bar to Canonical URL without reloading the page. Click again to return to the original URL.
It works in the same way when the URL contains extra parameters.
Please use it, for example, when you share a page.
Risk impact

Canonical Url Detector requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Canonical Url Detector has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

When switching between tabs and opening a lot in new tabs, the addon does not work because it shows green icon but URL in adressbar is not matching the canonical tag. And when clicking it opens the wrong URL. So I have to look for another addon. It seems that my page does use ajax calls and stuff the addon cannot understand when using e.g. pagination. @developer If you bugfix this please tell me, so I review it again.

Works perfectly if it has a canonical tag. I am having problems with my website because it's posting duplicate canonical tags, so I was trying to see which one it gives priority to, but since it only shows the page as the source and not an actual report, I can't exactly pinpoint what canonical it reads. But nonetheless it's a great tool for SEO.
