What is Find on Reddit?
'Find on Reddit' is a minimal, light-weight, open-source Chrome extension that enhances user experience by finding Reddit submission threads related to the current URL you're visiting. It uses Reddit's public API and provides valuable features such as auto-search, the options of exact or fuzzy search, and a special YouTube ID search feature. Not just that, it allows you to disregard URL's query-string and even sort search results by score, age, or subreddit. Enjoy the freedom to blacklist sites and cache your search results for reducing network usage.

Chrome-Stats extension

Minimal, light-weight, open-source extension that finds Reddit submission threads of the current URL using Reddit's public API. You can either initiate the search by clicking the extension button, or by having auto-search enabled, which automatically does the search in the background for every URL you visit.

Other features include:

  • Do an exact or a fuzzy search
  • Special YouTube handling: search by video ID to find all variations of YouTube links
  • Ignore URL's query-string
  • Sort results by score, # of comments, age, or subreddit
  • Blacklist sites to exclude them from auto-search
  • Cache results for a (configurable) amount of time to reduce network usage

I think the extension lacks of only one feature: a real alert or integrated message to the current web page to indicate the URL has associated reddit thread rather than a discrete count in the extension bar. Then it will become a must have. The developer has gold in his hands.

Before I was using camas & posting on my own dummy subreddits to find out if something was posted before. Both of those methods suck. This extension rules.

Amazingly useful extension! Thanks for listening to and implementing suggestions :) Really appreciate the hard work.
