Open Google Patents
Opens Google Patents for a selected patent identifier.
What is Open Google Patents?
"Open Google Patents" is a Firefox add-on that allows you to easily open Google Patents for a selected patent identifier in just a few clicks.
This solution allows you to quickly open Google Patents for a selected patent identifier.
Select a patent identifier in text, then open the context menu and select "Open Google Patents" from the menu. You can normally open the context menu by right-clicking. For example, selection of "US7654321," and then "Open Google Patents" from the context menu, opens a new tab to the URL https://patents.google.com/patent/US7654321.
Note that in the absence of a country code prefix, the presumption is that the identifier is for a US patent document. Be sure that the identifier has the country code included if the associated document is not a US patent document.
Please let me know of any issues you experience before writing a review -- I'm happy to continue to improve the solution. The extension is provided 'As-Is' without any express or implied warranty of any kind.
Note that I do not collect any information from the extension -- all handling is done at your local browser.
