We support plain or styled text, local and sync browser storage, clipboard macros, date and time macros, dynamic value fields in expansions, dynamic math, omnibox support, and much more!

Your words-per-minute will skyrocket, your colleagues will swoon at your productivity, online drudgery of the corporate world won't touch you, and you'll never bother with the Herculean task of right-click, copy, go-somewhere-else, right-click...

For more info, visit the Help section inside the app, or watch the promo video on this page.

⋆Snippets⋆ - expand abbreviations
Define custom abbreviations, and expand them by simply pressing the hotkey (default: Shift+Space). It can be even a full-length email to your customer! Example: "brb" can expand to "Be right back!" Think of these as "canned responses".

⋆Placeholders⋆ - fields (inside snippets) which can be given dynamic values on using the snippet. Example: snippet "wishBday", which you can use to wish your friends Happy Birthday! Since the name of the friend keeps changing, so you can add a placeholder in the snippet body, as "%name%" (without quotes). It'll be auto-highlighted whenever you use the snippet and you can type your friend's name into it.

⋆Mathomania⋆ - do math without leaving your text editor, and without calculators. Simply type the math expression inside the `[[` and `]]` and press `=` to get the results. (watch the promo video for details) Parentheses and exponentiation is also supported.
Example: "[[ 15% * 600 =]]" gives "90" and "[[ (5+6) * 15^2 =]]" gives "2475".

Risk impact

ProKeys requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install ProKeys if you trust the publisher.

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

ProKeys 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.
