Wired-Marker for Linux Publisher's description
from BITS Co., Ltd.
A permanent (indelible) highlighter that you use on Web pages.
Wired-Marker Firefox extension is a permanent (indelible) highlighter that you use on web pages. The highlighter, which comes in various colors and styles, is a kind of electronic bookmark that serves as a guide when you revisit a Web page. The highlighted content is automatically recorded in a scrapbook and saved. To use Wired-Marker, you simply drag and drop the selected sections into a scrapbook folder. You can highlight not only text but also pictures, tables, and selected portions of the screen. You can even add notes to the highlighted items.
You can view the highlighted items, their associated URLs, their position in the page, and any user notes at a glance in a tabular format. The view can also be exported as an XML file, thus making it possible to exchange scrapbooks between users and to parse a large scrapbook.
Use as "indelible highlighter" on Web pages
By using the highlighter settings in Wired-Marker, you can customize the color and style of the highlighter (with which the compiled and saved sections in a Web page are highlighted) associated with a folder. These highlighted sections remain visible on the page when you revisit it.
Use as electronic bookmark
You can use Wired-Marker to bookmark specific positions in a Web page by using XPath instead of using only the URL. Often, the information that you require is a single phrase or a single keyword, even in an important document. By using Wired-Marker, you can directly jump to the position of interest in a long page or paragraph.
Since you can create an infinite combination of highlighter colors and styles, you can categorize the compiled information according to the color and style in a manner similar to the use of multicolored bookmarks.
Use as scrapbook folder
Sections and pictures are automatically copied when they are highlighted. Thus, a scrapbook is automatically generated without any additional operations. Unlike the usual copy-and-paste operation, the URL and coordinate in a page are also recorded; thus, the source of the item in the scrapbook is clear, and this facilitates the organization of the collected data. You can also add notes to the scrapbook items.
Use as structural organization tool for information
You can increase the number of highlighter colors and styles corresponding to different themes to suit your needs. You can also create hierarchical folders corresponding to each type of highlighter and display the scrapbook information in a hierarchical list view. By specifying a stylesheet, you can switch to a user-defined viewing style, and you can also edit the notes and other user-added information directly from the hierarchical list view.
Other useful functions:
- Template creation
- Image capture
