  • I used to be an Opera user. If you were a power-user, that's the browser that called out to you. Period.

    Every time I switched to other browsers, there was always a feature (or more) that they lacked. Even the "simple" act of highlighting text within a link (which I had taken for granted) wasn't supported anywhere on the "modern" browsers I trusted enough to install.

    It never occurred to me that an extension could fix this. I'm browsing extensions today and literally just stumbled unto this while reviewing extensions in the "other" category.

    Like magic, Kestrel has delivered something I thought long lost. Not being able to highlight sections of text within a link has been a dull aching annoyance for so long that I have learned to grudgingly live with it. Coming across this has literally made my day!
  • Отличная работа.
    Не понимаю почему разработчики не релизуют эту возможность, если не по умолчанию, то хотя бы в виде настройки.
    Ведь именно такое поведение при выделении ссылок является правильным.
  • Indispensable! On peut enfin copier facilement des liens ou des bouts de liens..Cool!
  • Great. It works!
  • Select like a boss, WebExtension ver. & Enhanced ver.

    Edit:

    Bug?: When enabling this extension, drag and drop function is triggered by it, then couldn't drop the link in the library listbox of firefox (non-textbox area), but work fine for dropping to external programs.

    Edit 2:
    Not a bug, it's my misunderstanding. By default press and hold on will select all of link text. To drag a link, I need to drag non-horizontally.
  • Works well, does what it says.
  • альтернатива Select like a Boss, который действовал как выделение в старой опере
  • Works flawlessly. Useful extension. Thanks.
  • Krestrel, thanks buddy! Excellent extension, which I found by accident. It never occurred to me to even look for this because I was so used to struggling with selecting link text. Good work!
  • Absolutely essential.
  • Awesome!
