What is Super Simple Highlighter?
Super Simple Highlighter is a unique Edge add-on that lets users make private highlights on any web page. These highlights are stored and restored upon revisiting the page. It offers a variety of highlighting styles, including basic colors, redaction and blurs that can be made through mouse or keyboard shortcuts. The add-on provides a navigable popup dialog for highlights within a page, and a summary of highlights that can be viewed, printed, or saved. It operates entirely in your browser, doesn't sync across devices and may not always successfully restore highlights on revisits.

Perfect! This is what I wanted and works exactly how I want it too.

An excellent add-on. I use it all the time for my personal and work uses. You can easily add and remove highlights, use different colours, and even access a history of it. Props to the dev for a job well done. :) If I may, I'd like to suggest adding a feature for assignable hotkeys to the highlighting action to make it easier and quicker to use. Thanks again!
