This extension does copy the text with link. You will find it when you paste to a rich text editor. If you paste it on a plain text editor, you will only get the selected text. It's pretty reasonable

Simply wonderful! It's not mentioned on this page, however you can simply click the button without selecting anything and it will create a link for the current page. This works in a Google search which is exactly what I required i.e. "Search term" with the link embedded. 10/10 Update: Still one of my favorite extensions, however it would be great if it worked on Google Docs?

I agree with Kould B. It copies the selected text just fine, but the link is nowhere to be found.

Yet another extension that claims to copy the link, but fails to do so. It only copies the selected text. But not the link. I absolutely loathe it when developers treat users like fools.
