Google Chrome integration



Linkman offers a Chrome Addon to allow you a direct interaction with Linkman in the browser. The addon is installed automatically when you install Linkman.


It can also be installed manually. Make sure you are visiting this page ( with Chrome.




In the search window Linkman uses wildcards and operators to combine search terms. AND (DEFAULT), OR, AND NOT and the '-' sign can be used. Example: a search for backup software -usb will find all links containing the keyword backup AND the keyword software, but NOT containing the keyword usb.


Chrome and Linkman communicate over TCP/IP port 80.


If you use this port for another application you can configure Chrome and Linkman to exchange data over a different port (Menu Button | Tools | Extensions | Linkman | Options).


You know when you need to change the port from 80 to e.g. 81 if Linkman does not respond to the addon clicks (should not be needed on 99% of all computers).




The communication port must be also changed in Linkman (Tools | Settings | Browser).
