I conduct a great deal of online research for my job. I’ll find sites that spark ideas for posts, and locate information that I know will help our readers.
A little plugin for the Firefox browser called ScrapBook has significantly improved the way I conduct this research online.
First and foremost, ScrapBook allows me to easily bookmark a web page. This is just the beginning of the useful qualities of the program, however.
Once a page is bookmarked, I can highlight text, create sticky notes of ideas, erase content on the page that doesn’t interest me, and then capture my notes and changes for later reference. It’s an amazing plugin, and one I highly recommend. It completely gets rid of any need I might have to print web pages to write or take notes on them.
