Highlight Specific Keywords When Page Loads

Highlight keywords from comma separated list

by @pixies


How to Use

Highlight specific keywords on a page automatically. Preset keywords that are common and important to you, and anytime you load a page with those words, PixieBrix will highlight them—you can even choose the color!


  • Make sure you have a PixieBrix account! (It's free.)

Activate the Mod

  1. Activate this mod. If you're not logged into PixieBrix or have not previously created a PixieBrix account, you'll be prompted to do so before continuing the activation flow for this mod.

  2. Once logged in, use the PixieBrix Extension Console to configure the keywords that you want to be highlighted. (By default, we've added some PixieBrix terms, but you can change them to anything you'd like.) Add as many as you want to be separated by commas. Finally, choose the color you'd like to see the highlighted text. You can provide a color name or hex code. Read for more details about accepted values.

  2. When the page loads, you'll see the terms you provided in the configuration highlighted.
