What in the heck is “mass link clicking”?
You click a link, you open a link – it is all pretty straight forward. What if for example you are browsing through search results and you want to open the top three links? You have to go to each one click, have it open in a new tab, repeat…repeat..
There is an extension to save your finger from those extra clicks and I do have to admit it is pretty fun to use. Snap Links allows you to draw a rectangle over a series of links and automatically open them all up. Think of it as you would selecting multiple files on your desktop.
Here are a few more details about the Snap Links extension:
- The user selects the links by drawing a rectangle
- Only the main links are selected by default
- Requires only one click
- There is visual aid to show which links are currently selected
- The extension attempts to be simple, fast and intuitive
Snap Links allows users to select the default action on the options window (open links in new tabs, in new windows, in new tabs on a new window, bookmark, download or copy links to clipboard). Overall I think that Snap Links is a very unique extension that is sure to get a lot of attention (and hopefully even a lot better too) over time.
