Highlight to Search Extension Adds Easier Searching in Chrome

Google’s new Highlight to Search extension helps you search keywords in any page by simply highlighting text on the page.

Once you highlight a keyword, a magnifying glass icon will appear below the keyword, and once you click it, you’ll see a search box that lets you search Google easily for that keyword, right on the page.

    What’s up with that extension stating it can access “Your data on all websites” and “Your browsing history”??
    Why would it need to access this information and what does it do with it?

    That’s just generic. It says that for every extension. It just warns you that it has potential access to these things.
