Summary

The name of the extension describes its functionality quite precisely. It's dead simple yet powerful and useful.

Click on the mic icon that lives beside the address bar. After that recording of your voice will begin and you will see a small timer that informs you about elapsed time. Click it one more time - the recording will stop and there will be a prompt that suggests you to save your recordings as an audio file.

That's it! Enjoy your mono WAV file.

Important note. Please don't miss a small popup which you will see after successful installation. The popup will ask you to allow this extension to use your microphone. Click "Allow" and then click the "Turn on" button on the Welcome page

User reviews
It could be one of the best ones I've used if it didn't crash so much.
by Lucy Piselli Lucy Piselli, 2021-09-02

Funciona "bien". Es bastante cómodo que con solo un clic en el ícono de la extensión (sin abrir páginas adicionales o mostrar publicidad) se ponga directamente a grabar y con darle un segundo clic la grabación se detenga creando el archivo de sonido. Además, el hecho de que en el mismo contador aparezca en el ícono de la extensión también ayuda. Sin embargo... El hecho de que los archivos de sonido pesen tanto es algo que no me agrada demasiado. Para un pequeño audio de 20 segundos el archivo generado terminó pesando más de 2 MB, cuando lo normal sería que —para un audio tan corto— pesara mucho menos de 1 (quizás 0,2 o 0,3).
