Editors' Review

+

This one-hit wonder of a Firefox extensions nevertheless provides a useful feature for those who do a lot of cutting and pasting from Web pages into text fields or documents. AutoCopy copies any text you highlight to the clipboard--it's that simple.

It does do a bit more than that, though. The extension's Options menu lets users configure highlight behavior, post-copy pasting behavior, keyboard shortcuts, toggling a Status Bar button, and a menu that pops up after copying. From that pop-up menu, you can automatically paste the selected text into the location bar, the search bar, a new tab, access previous clipboards, or undo the copy.

AutoCopy's only flaw is that it occasionally conflicts with other extensions, but overall it's a simple, effective, must-have tool for those who copy text from a Web site to anywhere else on their computer and wants to speed up those tedious copy-and-paste tasks.

"If you copy before pasting this program isn't for you.."

July 06, 2009  |  By tg4fsi

 |  Version: AutoCopy 0.9.8

Pros

The auto-copy feature is really great

Cons

If you need to paste into an online form/app and overwrite text you'll lose what's in the clipboard.

Summary

I use a lot of online apps and forms and paste a lot from offline apps or other online apps. The main problem I had with this program is I usually highlight some text I want to copy, then go to another online form/app, highlight what I need to paste over...well, that workflow no longer works because as soon as you highlight what needs to be replaced you lose what you just copied from the other app. In order to use this app I'd have to do things differently and always copy as the last step before pasting which is not as intuitive.

There may have been a way to configure around this problem but I couldn't find it. If you don't copy and replace highlighted text that often then this is a cool program. But being a SEO I'm always highlighting and copying and I couldn't take the time to rework my brain to do it so I no longer lose my copied text.

I will look at this in a few versions though and see if they have anything to help with this.
