Summary
  • It's used like a screenshot tool, but instead of taking a screenshot it displays a box over the selected area. It's an intuitive and easy to use single click extension.

  • Click it once to remove it, or hold 'ctrl' and click to remove all boxes.

  • It uses the background color of the element it blocks, so with the right selection, integration is seamless.

  • You can choose between fixed or absolute position (box moves with scroll or not) as well as colors in the settings pane.

  • Everything runs locally and it doesn't connect to a server or collect data.

  • Limitation: selection must start within body element
