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

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