Notes, articles, and PDF files across multiple web pages, made easy to annotate and organize via a user-friendly extension (and friends)Repository Video 📺️
In today's digital age, we have access to vast amounts of information that are available in the form of PDFs, articles, and web pages. However, keeping track of important information buried within lengthy documents can be challenging. This is where our browser extension comes in. Our solution allows users to easily highlight and save essential sentences from PDFs, webpages, articles, etc with just a few clicks. The best part? The highlighted sentences are stored in a centralized file, making it easy for users to revisit them whenever they need to. With our browser extension, users can streamline their research process and save valuable time.
