Summary

Ever seen websites whose drop-down menu has so many things and all in the wrong order that you cannot sift through it?

Or you want to search for a word in the middle of the phrase in the drop-down menu?

This extension allows you to do that easily by first clicking on a drop-down menu, then click on the toolbar icon to activate the search function.

You can filter by any, or all, of the following:

  • contains
  • not contains
  • begins with
  • ends with
  • doesn't begin with
  • doesn't end with
A great feature of this extension is that it doesn't add extra elements or event handlers to the DOM therefore there is minimal interference with the webpage (it won't interfere with libraries like ReactJS). It does need to add 2 attributes to the element to keep track of state.

Also, this extension requests no permissions and doesn't transmit any data elsewhere, allowing you to use it in complete confidence.

Technical Explanation: If you are a computer talking guy and want to know how this extension works then read on.

Doesn't seem to work anymore. Sometimes it detects the drop-down menus, but on more modern websites they're often not detected. If i'm typing anything in search it doesn't get filtered in the drop-down menu.
