Linky Brings Multi Links Like Functionality To Google Chrome

6 Gen/10

Multi Links (formerly known as Snap Links) is one of those small Firefox add-ons that add a lot of value to the web browser. It allows the Firefox user to draw a rectangle on the screen to open all links contained within that rectangle on release. This can be very helpful to open links lists, all threads on a forum page, linked photos in a single blogpost or forum at once.

Linky is the first add-on for the Google Chrome browser that brings part of that functionality to the browser. The Google Chrome extension does not work exactly like the Firefox add-on which becomes problematic in several occasions.

Linky places an icon in the Google Chrome header. Pressing that icon will open all links that are currently highlighted by the user. Multi Links users will know that highlighting does not prove to be as effective as working with the rectangle simple because of the reason that highlighting will highlight everything on the page between the first and last selected link. This would mean for the Google Search results for example that all Cached and Similar pages would be opened as well which is usually not the intention of the user.

Linky works best when the links are placed next to each other without interfering elements. This is for example the case in sidebar menus. It is however not practical on all sites and the developer should consider switching to the implementation offered by Multi Links instead.

Linky can be downloaded at the official Google Chrome extensions repository over at the Google website.
