The Wired-Marker add-on for Firefox gives you access to one of the best virtual highlighters I have seen thus far. Being able to highlight on web pages in various styles and colors can really help you in a number of ways when doing research or working Online.
You can think of it as an electronic bookmarker that services as a guide with you go back to that specific web page. Another neat feature is it also automatically records and saves your highlighted info in a scrapbook for later.
Here are some of the ways you can use this handy extension:
- As a highlighter to help you mark material on a web site
- Save specific positions in a web page by marking it with the highlighter tool
- Use as a scrapbook to collect a lot of data from different pages or locations
- Organize your thoughts, but using different colors and styles for different occasions or tasks
So next time you have a research paper due, you need to compare prices, you need to collect various stats for your boss or you have a school project your working on, try working with the Wired-Marker. This is thus far the king of the digital highlighters.
