What is Word Highlighter?
Word Highlighter is a useful Chrome extension in its beta stage designed to streamline the process of searching for similar texts on a webpage. By simply double-clicking on a word, the extension triggers an automatic highlighting of matching terms, bypassing the need to use the traditional search function (Ctrl+F or command+F). While it generally provides accurate results, some unpredictable selections can occur given it's in its development stage.

먹통. 그리고 단어만 하면 의미가 무엇
by 신하영 신하영, 2023-06-12

I was using "highlight all" in firefox and it was perfectly working (using ctrl rather than a double clic). the title make the application difficult to find there. normally you have the keyword "occurences". doesn't work on chatGPT for instance edit: well still same things some bugs of selection. and the double clic is not really a good option and badly configured. if you double click seconds after, doing maybe a linguistic correction, it's still considered as a double clic and so it's underlined and the correction can't happen. serious bug.
