Copy as Markdown for Chrome & Firefox

Do you often type Markdown code manually for a link or image, or even all tabs in a window, and feel tired? Copy as Markdown can help you!



Copy as Markdown is a browser extension helps you copy the following things as Markdown to your system clipboard:

☑️ Current Tab as Link
☑️ A Link in the Page
☑️ An Image in the Page
☑️ An Image that is wrapped with a Link
☑️ All Tabs as a List of Links
☑️ Highlighted Tabs as a List of Links

Keyboard Shortcuts (Chrome-only)

You can add keyboard shortuts for copying tab(s) as Markdown. By default, Copy as Markdown does not assign any keyboard shortcuts.

  1. Open Extensions Page at chrome://extensions/.
  2. Scroll to the bottom and click "Keyboard shortcuts"
  3. Assign Keyboard Shortcuts in the dialog.

Known Issues

  • [Chrome] When copying an image, the image code does not include the alternative text of that image. This is due to API restriction.
