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.

very useful! The current implementation can't accurately locate the selected text, only the web page. Edge has a "copy link to highlight" option, which may be upgraded. Thank you.

Simple and useful. Could you add an option to copy the link in markdown format: text in squared brakets and link in parenthesis, with no spaces in between? Thanks.

Handy extension, I've been looking for something like this for a long time! -- Two feature suggestions: 1. Option to surround the text with square brackets. Combined with the parenthesis option for the link text, you could paste right into a markdown doc. 2. Option to copy the text as a link.
