When you click Search for the first time, the Chrome browser will ask you if you would like to give simkl.com permission to see your clipboard.
After that, every time you open Search, Simkl will check your clipboard for any TV Shows, Anime, or Movie titles and if it can find exactly what’s in your clipboard, it will automatically display the first 5 results from the search. You can also click Paste at any time to perform a full search, no need to type. Just don’t forget to select a category to search in (TV\Anime\Movie).
