Google Search Speed Boost 🚀

The Magic Highlighter is such a speed boost to the workflow I use most throughout the day: google search. Whether for personal or business use, having search terms highlighted on the resulting page gets you the answer you’re looking for instantly.

The app you didn’t know you needed

I love this app. I accidentally turned the app off and was getting upset that my words weren’t highlighted. It’s already one of those things that’s an everyday part of search for me. I love that it just works.

Great app, one recommendation

Love the idea of this app, please add opacity options so it can be more transparent for times it’s needed
