I would like autocopy for every text that I select to avoid to do several CMD+C.

Is there any way or application to do this?

I don’t know of any software that does that at a system level and apparently, neither do these guys at SuperUser. ;)

The reason why there’s no extension that does this for Safari yet is because the API for Extensions on Safari doesn’t support Clipboard mechanism at this time.

You can get this for Terminal by using iTerm instead
