The SiteKickr Snip button is a way to collect, share, organize and popularize code snippets from around the web.

Code that you have "snipped" will be collected and organized at SiteKickr Snippets.

Collect your favorite code snippets for easy reference, as well as discover new code that is growing in popularity.

The Snip button is similar to the Facebook Like button, with one unique advantage. It allows you to "like" individual sections of a page, instead of the entire page. This capability allows to you work with one or many individual code snippets on a page, instead of being limited to the page URL itself.
Risk impact

Snip It requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Snip It if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Snip It may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Really unique idea. I've been looking for a good way beyond bookmarking everything - to store and organize all of my favorite code chunks from all over the place. Nice!

Copy code from Stack Overflow, Github, and AskUbuntu's websites expediting the time it takes you to debug issues.

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
