Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful

<< < (177/191) > >>

@MilesAhead: Google Keep doesn't seem to do any syncing in the way that (say) Xmarks did/does, so I doubt it would be a problem in the way that you suppose.
It's just a way of clipping stuff to Google Drive in the Cloud - or locally ("offline") - a bit like a Clipboard store.
If you had Google Drive installed on the PC/laptop hard drive, then the store would end up there also.
Google Keep isn't of much use yet, because it is pretty basic/limited in what it does. I am waiting to see whether Google will develop it further. It has lots of potential.
I was hoping I might be able to dump Scrapbook in favour of Keep, but no, not yet anyways. Scrapbook is the main reason I am still tied to Firefox.

@IainB thanks for the info.  When I see "sync" I just assume they will glob everything together and push it if you want it or not.  :)  Good to know all is not insanity.  :)

Used to have many issues syncing with XMarks, even Mozilla sync for Firefox.
Happened once with Google about 7 years ago or so. Wrote to them and things were fixed almost instantly.
Syncing issues nowadays are a thing of the past.

Google Keep on Android syncs right away with their online database.
Comes in handy to take quick pictures, add notes or tags (recent novelty).

If you have an idea when the last free version was available on their web page try here:

There is a chrome extension that is somewhat similar.  Highlight something in the browser and a floating menu of icon buttons pops up next to the mouse.  I can't remember the name of it though.  I removed it from SlimJet in favor of SelectionSearch extension.

I looked at Click.To web site.  I am still not sure exactly what it does.  But I take it that it is a stand-alone program and works independently of browsers.  For some reason these fast paste utilities seem to go from freeware to payware as soon as the bugs are removed.  :)

Try this link:

It looks like the last beta release.  Edit:  Oops!  It just says the beta is over.  Oh well, some time before that may work.  :)
