Frequently Asked Questions
Rich URL extension can be installed in most Chromium based browsers:
Why does Rich URL request permission to “Read and change all your data on the websites you visit” when you install it?
This permission is used by the extension for two purposes:
- Access from the extension actions to the simplified and/or selected text of the page.
- Provides a way to start extension actions using keyboard shortcuts. The Rich URL extension uses its own handling of keyboard shortcuts, as the number of actions that can be created in the extension by the user (and assign keyboard shortcuts to them) is not limited. While the Chrome API allows you to assign keyboard shortcuts only to the commands described during the extension creation phase.
