I picked this gem up at Gizmo's TechAlert
Coming from a die hard Firefox fan... this is humbling.  :o

The so-called Australis update was a cruncher but this addon for Chrome makes me want to tilt to the "dark side".

Just noticed that Martin at GHacks posted something about it too.

^^ Yes, I was impressed too, but it still doesn't beat Scrapbook (which saves content including images and lots more, and is indexed/searchable in Windows Search), which is one of the main reasons I am sticking with Firefox as my primary browser, with IE, Chromium, Chrome coming after it - in that order.

Unless I missed out on an option, Scrapbook must be run manually no?

I like that he shows off DonationCoder in the article. (c: :Thmbsup:

I really could have used this earlier, as I've been trying to recall the URL to an article I read a few months ago about a particular topic, but cannot find the source in my history no matter what I try.

Thanks for sharing!

Yes, that's correct.

Scapbook could be a good OneNote or Evernote substitute!

You are welcome Deozaan.
Folks at DCF have been so kind to me, if i can ever "pay" back in some way...

So, I just removed the All Seeing Eye.

I had a very difficult time finding anything in my browsing history with it. I was trying to find a site that I had closed only hours earlier and it brought up all sorts of useless and unrelated results, even though I was using exact words from the page's title.

I wish it was better. It certainly sounded great, but in practice I've found it to be... not very good at all. :(

Deozanan,

To be frank with you, i thought it a good idea at the time, especially for Chrome users (which i am not by default).
I haven't used that browser much since then 'cause i really can't adjust to liking Chrome (or any C based browser).
No matter how much i dislike Australis and its novelties, Firefox is still my browser of choice.
