AutoCopy extension for Chrome

This is an extension for Google's Chrome web browser.
When installed and enabled, it will copy to the computer's clipboard every text that is selected. This behavior is like Unix terminals, where selecting text also copies it.

The extensions has these options:
1. Enable/disable copying (on by default)
2. Enable copying text inside textboxes (off by default)
3. Remove selection after copy (off by default)
4. Remove formatting from the selection - copy as simple text (on by default)
   Copy with formatting stopped working in Chrome 6, so this option is now
   always set (since 1.3.2).

Possible Problems

Chrome extensions that manipulate the contents of a page, work only in http:// pages, at least at the early stage of Chrome 4 beta. This is probably due to security considerations. So this extension will not work in the extension settings page (chrome://) or in its own options page. It will not work either in https:// pages. Hopefully Google will sort that out later.


This software is free. Like every extension, it is distributed with the source code and you are encouraged to do anything you want with it. If you do anything interesting, I'd be happy to hear about it.

Have fun
