I had a little down time after Google IO and I wanted to scratch a long-term itch I’ve had. I just want to be able to copy text that is held inside images in the browser. That is all. I think it would be a neat feature for everyone. It’s not easy to add functionality directly into Chrome, but I know I can take advantage of the intent system on Android and I can now do that with the Web (or at least Chrome on Android).
I was just reflecting on some of the work our team has done and I found a project from 2017 that Robert Nyman and Eric Bidelman created. Browser Bug Searcher!. It’s incredible that with just a few key presses you have a great overview of your favourite features across all the major browser engines. Source code available. This actually highlights one of the issues that I have with crbug and webkit bug trackers, they don’t have a simple way to get feeds of data in formats like RSS.
