Editors' review

Finding information on the Web is only half the battle. Next you have to figure out how to store all those snippets of data. Copying them to Word or saving them in a Web archive only partially solves the problem. For Firefox users, ScrapBook provides an elegant way out. This extension installs a sidebar where you can drag and drop an entire Web page or any part of it, including images, links, and formatting. You can join snippets, organize them into folders, export them to other folders, and save the folder tree as HTML. Scrapbook automatically tags each snippet with the Web address from which it came. What's more, ScrapBook offers basic tools for annotating and editing captured pages. You can highlight or erase passages as well as add text comments. The interface could use a bit of polish, but overall this is a marvelous tool for Web research.

    "for what it does; a definite must have"

    April 29, 2007   |   By peace_In_Being

    Version: ScrapBook for Firefox 1.2.0.8

    Pros

    I have been using this for a while now and use this on a daily basis. saves a lot of time in that i have placed it on the toolbar; on the "links" bar, sort of like an applet, and opens (although you can use short cut keys to open or close it quickly) the saved pages into a tree looking menu on the left.

    I usually access one of two things;

    1. Sometimes its just quick access to my short list that is part of my short to medium term research

    2. Often i need access to commonly used documents or a particular topic i am involved in on a medium term basis which makes it real quick to access.

    Not everyone needs this extension, but if you do, i highly recommend you try it out. More likely it would become temporarily permanent is my guess. Its great.

    Cons

    This is probably arguable if it is a con or not, and is more like a suggestion or reminder that it can get very quickly out of hand in terms of the amount of information that gets stored there where it end up defeating the purpose i guess. Thats more of a self management/ self organization issue though.

    "Essential Addon for FF"

    May 19, 2005   |   By Seeking Software

    Version: ScrapBook 0.15.2

    Pros

    Makes it easy to save and organise web pages. Works with both drag and drop to the side panel, as well as through the right click menu. Can save selected parts of the page as well as the whole page. The built-in editor suffices for most tasks and does not require fiddling with HTML. Organising is very easy with Folders/Sub-folders. Has importing/exporting as well as backup/resotre of the page database. This is one complete and rounded tool.

    Cons

    Minor quibbles. It doesnt remember the last directory that was used. I would also like as an added feature, the ability to create profiles for saving the pages with different options instead of changing them on a per page basis.
