Summary

This extension lets you check whether the current URL you are on has been submitted to reddit. You can jump right into the discussion if the the link has already been submitted. Otherwise a "Submit this link" is provided for a link to reddit submission page.

This extension will save you some time if you are about to repost a link. Also this extension is a quick way to check for reddit's comments on a blog or article.

** UPDATE 0.8

  1. Cache results to reduce network overhead
  2. Bug fixes: Sometimes, clicking the button opened the submission page even when there were results.

** UPDATE 0.7 UI Improvements

** UPDATE 0.6 Added Blacklist on Options page to not run Reddit Check on certain websites. For example, you may not want Reddit-Check to run on your company's internal website or your bank's website. You can add these to your blacklist. Adding "bank" will stop Reddit Check from running on any URL containing "bank".

Awesome extension, though it would be great to have the option to preview the comments of each submission, which you can do in the “Reddit Wherever” extension.

Needs a whitelist only option. I don't need it checking every site. I have specific sites I want it to work on only. I don't wanna have to manually blacklist every other site.

CAUTION: This extension sends all your browser history to Reddit. Take note: In order to display that little badge next to the extension showing how many Reddit posts exist for the current page, this extension searches Reddit for for the URL of the current page. Since it does this for _every_ page you visit, Reddit is getting a complete copy of your browser history in realtime. This isn't necessarily malicious behavior, since it would be very difficult to provide that feature without doing this, but I feel this is something that's important for users to be aware of.
