Automatically Copy Selected Text in Google Chrome

One thing I like about Linux and consoles in general is the ability to automatically copy selected text, this feature is missing out in Windows and all Internet browsers in general.


Auto Copy is a which will automatically copy selected text in the browser to the clipboard. Once you install the Auto Copy extension in , the text you select will automatically be copied to the clipboard. This will save you some time as you don’t have to right click to copy text or use the Ctrl + C shortcut key.

Techie Buzz Verdict

Auto Copy is a excellent extension which will definitely save you a lot of time if you frequently copy content from webpages.

If you are worried about overwriting your Clipboard, you can try out check out some excellent Copy/paste replacements for Windows or use a Open source Clipboard manager to copy multiple items to the clipboard.

    auto-copy selected text = evil spyware
    now that they know all about you interests, pages you visit, all accounts and passwords you use -they also want to know the exact contents that interests you the most. They are not satisfied enough that during all this time for every page you visit they take not one, but two screen-shots of it (one smaller jpeg format and the other in full resolution png), no! Now they want to read exactly what is it that you are doing those pages. That’s great…
