This extension allows for easily creating a special link to the currently selected text on a page via the context menu. When opening such a special link, a compatible browser will scroll the selected text into view and highlight it.
1) Select the text that you want to link to.
2) Right-click and choose "Copy Link to Selected Text" from the context menu.
3) If the link creation succeeded, the selected text will be briefly highlighted in yellow.
4) Paste your link wherever you want to share it.
Pro-tip: use a keyboard shortcut (by default: Command+Shift+L or Ctrl+Shift+L).
