Summary
Analyze keywords

A browser extension to display the page's server flag in the toolbar area indicating the current webserver's physical location. This is done by comparing the IP range with an offline database from MaxMind's GeoLite (there is no server interaction to get the info). Knowing the server location adds an extra layer of awareness to your browsing and is useful to indicate the native languages and legal jurisdictions that may apply. Additional information about Geolocation or Whois info can be obtained via the left- and right-click on the action icon.

Features:

  1. This is an open-source project (https://github.com/andy-portmen/country-flags/issues)
  2. Identifies IP4, IP6, and private IP addresses
  3. It is now possible to use the native DNS resolver if a user is under a SOCKS proxy (disabled by default; requires native integration)
  4. Offline database updates once per 7 days using the window.caches API
  5. Supports running a custom command when an IP is resolved; This command accepts [ip], [host], [curl], [enurl] and [url] keywords
  6. Open requested service optionally in the background and/or adjacent to the current tab.

Available tools in the right-click menu (only six services are visible in the main menu):

  1. SSL Checker: Check SSL certificate
  2. Traceroute: Display the route and transit delays of packets
  3. Ping: Test the reachability of this IP address
  4. TinyURL: Shorten the URL using TinyURL.com
