Multi Links: Mozilla Firefox Addon

by Prashant Kumar Sharma

Multi Links by Grizzly Ape Preview Image of Multi Links is a Mozilla Firefox add-on which  lets you open, copy or bookmark multiple links at the same time rather than having to do them one at a time.

I especially like the quick ON / OFF functionality it provides just by clicking it in the status bar of Browser; because i find it difficult to work when its activated as sometimes i accidentally drag the mouse to open unwanted links.

To open, copy or bookmark links, you simply right click and hold to drag a box around the links you wish to take action on. When you release the right mouse button, you will open/copy/bookmark those links.

To choose whether you open, copy or bookmark links inside the Multi Link options. Open links in new tabs is the default action which can also be changes to open in new windows.

Inside options you can also fully customise the look and feel of Multi links such as colours, border styles and more.

You can select groups of links in different areas of the page by using the shift or ctrl keyboard keys. This comes in handy if you want to open #1,2,3,4 and 7,8,9,10 in Google missing out #5 & 6 for example. You can either drag a box around them all and then use shift or ctrl to deselect #5 & 6 or select #1,2,3 & 4 and then hold shift or ctrl and draw another box around #7,8,9 & 10.

Multi Links comes in handy particularly with search engines such as Google, Yahoo, MSN and Bing as it automatically detects that you want to only open search results and not additional links such as “cached, similar & filter” but you can change this in options if you want.

It’s easy to cancel a selection by simple left clicking or pressing the Esc keyboard key and your selection will be cancelled.
