I am looking for a Chrome browser plugin that would automatically search every loaded webpage for a given set of keywords (or regular expression). If found (or if regex has matched) - the plugin then should alert me with the Red Flag in the toolbar or so.

Here is my use case:

we have a list of companies that compete with us. While browsing websites / profiles of potential investors on the internet, I want to be alerted if their portfolio page mentions one of our competitors. Most of VCs would only invest in one company per niche, to avoid potential conflict of interests between portfolio companies. So I would not want to send my pitch deck to investor who is already involved with competitor.

I should just be able to provide a list of keywords to search (or a regular expression) as part of plugin configuration parameters, and then the plugin should search every page I load automatically. If the match is found, the plugin should show a flashing red light icon alerting me that the match was found on the current page.

Please advice! I am assigning a $3 bounty for a good answer, thanks!

searched this in google:

chrome plugin that automatically searches every page for keywords

first match, MultiHighlighter plugin, does not do what I need - it loses the keywords after loading new page. However, in comments to that plugin, someone has mentioned this:

1. efTwo plugin

This one is somewhat workable for my purposes, although less than ideal.

Pros:

  • I was able to provide multple keywords
  • It remembers keywords between multiple page navigations and searches new pages automatically

Cons:

  • The area to enter keywords is too small for me. If I want to enter 15 different keywords, it would be very inconvenient to edit them. I have to edit them in the small input box which is always visible while browsing (I dont need that)
  • Cannot provide a Regex
  • Default settings would behave in a such way that would overwrite my keywords with every google search. Thankfully, there is an option to disable that behavior

Next I've tried to search directly on Chrome Webstore for "Regex" keyword. There was one more plugin that I've also tried:

2. Regex Search plugin

Pros:

  • it is open source, so I could use it as a base and create what I want

Cons:

  • it does not remember the provided regex between pages, so totally not usable for my purspose

Overall, the "efTwo" plugin is somewhat usable but very inconvenient for my use case. I would be happies with something like "Keyword Alert plugin" or "Regex Autosearch plugin" or so
