Is there such a thing? It would be nice to be able to select html text, click a button, and have that text copied into the clipboard with a cite to the source link. Then, I could just paste into my email and send it.

There are some apps which allow you to SAVE and share webpage selections, but many times, I'm not interested in saving and don't want to do that.

I use a Firefox and MS Word extension called Zotero that will copy site links and paste the citation in BlueBook format (last visited . . . etc) within your document. It's extremely helpful for writing and keeping track of sources.

Create Link has some bugs, but it's okay if you use HTML style in the right-click context menu. https://eduk8.me/2016/01/copy-url-title-and-selected-text-easily-in-chrome-and-firefox/
