-Currently early in development and is not yet fully working or tested thoroughly.-
A Google Chrome extension that highlights sites on Google/Reddit that have been manually whitelisted by the user.
Designed to be an anti-typosquatting tool and to highlight known trusted sites.
The extension icon also changes to green when you are currently browsing a whitelisted site.
All code and further details are available on the GitHub respository: https://github.com/
I am considering releasing the extension on the Google Chrome Web Store once it is in a more finished state and has been tested thoroughly.
For the mean time, you can install it manually:
Download the ZIP from GitHub and extract the contained folder.
Open the Chrome extensions manager (Settings -> More Tools -> Extensions, or go to the URL chrome://extensions.
Enable developer mode by checking the box.
Click "Load Unpacked Extension" and select the extracted folder containing the extension files.
You can access the options page by clicking "Options" from the extensions manager, or by right clicking the extension icon at the top right of Chrome.
Enter website names into the box, one per line. This must be the full website name, including subdomains if required. Example:
example.com github.com www.reddit.com
Regular expressions (regex) are not supported.
Click save. Now when you perform a Google search or browse Reddit, links matching those that you defined in the configuration will be highlighed in green. The extension icon at the top right will also change to green when you are currently browsing a whitelisted site.
