Introducing: Linkify for Chrome

In WordPress 4.2, a fun little feature was quietly snuck into Core, I’m always delighted to see people’s reactions when they discover it.

But there’s still a problem – WordPress is only ~26% of the internet, how can you get the same feature on the other 74%? Well, that problem has now been rectified. Introducing, Linkify for Chrome:

Thank you to Davide for creating Linkify’s excellent icon!

Linkify is a Chrome extension to automatically turn a pasted URL into a link, just like you’re used to in WordPress. It also supports Trac and Markdown-style links, so you can paste links on your favourite bug trackers, too.

Speaking of bug trackers, if there are any other link formats you’d like to see, post a ticket over on the Linkify GitHub repo!

Oh, and speaking of Chrome extensions, you might be like me, and find the word “emojis” to be extraordinarily awkward. If so, I have another little extension, just for you.
