The Copy Without Formatting extension fixes one of the biggest annoyances in the Google Chrome and Chromium browsers. When you copy a text fragment, the extension automatically strips it of all formatting. This way, you don't have to reformat the text snippet manually, when you paste it in a document.

This one-trick pony extension can be a great time-saver, and you can tweak its settings to your liking in the Options section. Here you replace the default keyboard shortcut with your own as well as enable the Auto-copy feature which automatically copies the selection. You can also enable the floating button which appears when you select a text fragment. This allows you to perform the copy action using the mouse.
