Highlight text on webpage hook

Gary at MacMost.com just shared with his Patreon group how to create a web link that highlights selected text on a web page. This adds deep linking to web pages.

Here’s the link if you have a Patreon acct with him:

He found that Chrome creates a link that also works in Safari. The format is web URL followed by #:~:text= followed by the text you want highlighted with %20 replacing the spaces.

ex. https://macmost.com/

He goes on to show how to create a shortcut that creates the link from selected text on a web page. This would be a nice addition to Hookmark’s kit.
