Rabbit Hole is a browser extension that tracks your journey through Wikipedia to create a map of your knowledge base. You can then annotate links between articles and add your own notes thereby creating a small knowledge base of your own.

During the course of this hackathon, the plan is to add a couple of features that would make the extension more useful for sites other than Wikipedia as well as making notes & previews more useful.

Note: This version of the extension is only supported on Firefox.
