  • Select text on any page and click the highlighter icon that appears.
  • Click the highlighter icon in the address bar to see a list of your hightlights.
Your highlights are removed if you leave the page or refresh.


This is primarily a proof of concept. Will be adding additional features in the near future including: jump between your highlights on a page, remove highlights, copy-paste, and more.

Really useful. I use it many times every day. I wish you could change highlight colours.

Out of all of the highlighter extensions available for Firefox this is the only one that works in the secure window I have to use for work. Easy to use, no extra steps.. just select the text and highlight. Thank you!

I love it. I wish there was cloud support for the pages that are highlighted.
