What is Copy Selected Links?
"Copy Selected Links" is a convenient Chrome extension that fits ideally into your browsing ecosystem if you frequently need to copy the URLs of links embedded in selected text. Although no longer actively maintained, it remains readily available for download and use, and its source can be found on Gitlab for any interested party in forking. This extension enables a simple right-click or hotkey operation to copy all these URLs at once, enhancing efficiency and streamlining your browsing experience.
This extension won't be maintained further. I'm shelving this project due to lack of interest/utility and too much burden. The addon will remain available for download as long as the store allows, and the source on gitlab (https://gitlab.com/Marnes-group/webextensions) will also remain available to fork. I do have a greasyfork account (https://greasyfork.org/en/users/18593-marnes) and may publish works there in the future. I have mild intentions to reimplement the core functionality of CSL, IBCP, and DID as public userscripts.
Also available for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/copy-selected-links/
When you select text in a page and your selection contains links, you can right-click anywhere on the selection or use a hotkey to copy the URLs of all those links at once.
