If you are a blogger or webmaster, you certainly need to copy and paste links from around the web. A lot! Examples include writing blog posts where you need to link to related resources, creating pages within your site linking to other pages and so on.
The normal way of doing this is very cumbersome. You need to create the anchor text first, then go the page to copy its permalink, and then go back to paste it (or to create the link tag manually, which takes even more time).
Is there a better way? Yes, and that is what this Firefox add-on is all about. Copy As HTML Link does exactly what its name says. It lets you copy and paste links with the HTML code on the fly. You just need to highlight the text you want to use as anchor text (e.g., the page title or any phrase inside it), right click on it, and then choose “Copy as HTML Link.” Once you paste it on the other end you’ll have something like this:
Words you highlighted
Neat huh? I have been using this add-on for years, and it saved me a lot of time. It is compatible with virtually all Firefox extensions too, so try it out.
