Html Scan Chrome extension (Inspect and copy HTML)

I just published a new chrome extension called Html Scan which helps to check the HTML code or text of any element and instantly copy its code with one click.

html scan

You can use for copying code in web pages with one click instead of selecting the whole code using the cursor and pressing the ctrl+c.

It also shows you currently rendered element tagName, height & width, font-family and font-size.

This is awesome.

I just experiment on your side-profile box, and it copied the entire HTML elements and it's children.

You can have the HTML markup in the preview pane while hovering in a code highlight form or you can add to copy the CSS.

First i have added html markup in the preview panel but it is getting very large and not responsive so that I removed it.

In feature, i will add css also.

Great extension. A feature I would find VERY handy would be the ability to copy the HTML source code of the current tab to the clipboard using only a keyboard shortcut instead of having to open the extension. For example, after a page loads, I can press Shift-Alt-C (or whatever key combo) to copy the full html source to the clipboard.
If that's not possible, it would be helpful to be able to pin the extension so it stays open between page refreshes.
Thank you!!
