Summary

This is an extension that can highlight text on a web page, in a variety of styles. The highlighted text can be summarised, either as snippets or as full text.

In addition, the extension remembers the location & content of each highlight, and attempts, not always successfully, to highlight the same passages of text the next time the page is loaded.

The current page's highlights are listed by clicking on the 'Pen' icon in the toolbar, along with other management functions, such as copying the highlight's text to the clipboard, or speaking the selected text. Further functions are available in the options page.

Need clear instructions. Works on websites but not emails?

The description of this Extension could be more clear in the instructions. To use this extension: highlight the text, right click on the highlighted portion, select "Super Simple Highlighter" (mine was the second from bottom option), select the color that you want. If highlighting does not work right away, you may need to reload the page.
