    Default Chrome extension - Text lookup / search

    Hey!

    I'm new to coding. I'm trying to learn it so I can build a google chrome extension that will find text from a website field and then search for that on a different domain. Before I get too involved, I want to make sure what I want to build is even possible...


    So my setup has 2 pages. Page 1 is an application page, Page 2 is a directory page.

    On page 1 it will say something like "applicants name" and have a field box next to it (sort of like a picket field box where once you click it, the text becomes editable). I want the extension to search page 1 for Applicant's Name and then pull the information stored in the field box next to it on the right to grab the Name of the person. Then when I go over to page 2, I want it to automatically search for that name and have a little box pop up telling me if there is a match or not.

    The Google Chrome extension I want to build is sort of like an automated copy/search/paste. I don't want to interact with anything. I just want it to automatically pull the field and tell me if it found a match on page 2. Is that at all possible?
