QuickFox Notes (Firefox add-on) - quick review
« on: January 22, 2012, 12:14:59 AM »
The Firefox QuickFox Notes add-on is available from here.
This add-on has been progressively improved until it is now a potentially very useful note-making tool, and it all seems to work rather well.
The notes can be saved either as a sort of bookmark in the Bookmarks system (the default), or as records in an Sqlite database.
The bookmarks can be:
  • sync'd to the "Cloud" and/or other devices using either the built-in Firefox Sync or the Xmarks service;
  • backed up as text files to the client hard disk;
  • copied across to Google docs (there's an add-in to QuickFox Notes that does that, via a button on the QFN toolbar).
About this Add-on

Introduction: QuickFox Notes is a multi-tab note taking add-on for Firefox that uses the integrated bookmarks system or a single sqlite database to store notes. Therefore, if you already have either a bookmarks synchronization add-on (e.g: XMarks) or a file synchronization software (e.g: Dropbox, SugarSync, Syncplicity), your notes will be synchronized automatically.

*** It is highly recommended to use Xmarks to synchronize QuickFox Notes ***
