Equals Operator

Equals operator does strict matching of Url interecepted by Chrome with the Url given in rule.

Please note that when you open, url intercepted is Note a trailing '/' slash at the end of Url.
So a rule with Equals operator and Url as does not match
So consider adding Slash ('/') at the end of url in your rule. You can alternatively create two pairs in the same rule as well.


Url in Rule:
Intercepted Url:
Result: false (Observe trailing slash)

Contains Operator

Contains operator does a substring search of string provided in rule inside the Url intercepted by Chrome.


String in Rule: yahoo
Intercepted Url:
Result: true


String in Rule: com?a=1
Intercepted Url:
Result: false

Regex Match Operator

Regex Match Operator matches a given Regex with the Url intercepted by chrome. You can also use the values of group expressions in your destination Urls.


Url Matches /(.+)\.google/ig
Destination https://$

In this case, above regex will be matched with interecepted Url. If regex is matched then $1 will be replaced in the destination Url and redirect happens to destination url.

Wildcard Match Operator

Wildcard match operator matches expression with the Url interecepted by chrome. We only support asterisk (*) as wildcard operator. * can match 0 or more characters in intercepted url. Please note that in wildcard match, complete url is matched with given expression and *’s can be replaced with respective values in destination Url.

Example 1:

Expression: *://*
Result: $1 = http, $2 = cricket

Example 2:

Expression: *yahoo
Result: Does not match. Note the trails does not match

Example 3:

Expression: *yahoo*
Result: $1 = http://www. $

Example 4:

Expression: http://*
Result: Does not match (Observe the trailing slash in Url)
