Why do we still have to hold Alt to select hyperlinks in 2020? The original Opera let users select hyperlinks flawlessly a decade ago!

 

The Chrome Web Store extension ‘Select like a Boss’ aims to solve this problem, but it’s far from perfect, eg HTML is inserted into the page which could prevent forms from submitting.

 

Please allow users to select hyperlinks just like any other text natively!
