From IndieWeb

verify-me is a browser extension that checks if rel-me links on the current page link back, and shows badges if they do.


The code for the plugin is on github. You can install on Firefox or Chrome from there. The plugin is also published in the Chrome extension store.

It uses the backend to check if links are bidirectional

It now does the link checking using local fetches
