The best thing about this tool is that it works in a different way than the Read Receipt of Outlook. Outlook provides the user an option of not sending the read receipt back to the sender of the email. But this browser extension works on the concept of a hidden image in the email. When a person reads the email, that images loads in the background and confirms the opening of the email.

If you send any link in the email then, it also tracks the status of that. So, you get the information that the link was clicked by the reader or not. And it also provide the information about the IP address on which the email was checked.
