Bookmark, tag or add notes to pages, highlight and save quotes or images, save selected Google searches, filter out search results.

(What's new in latest version: see KEEP NOTES AND ORGANIZE PAGES Bookmark, tag or add notes to pages. SAVE & HIGHLIGHT QUOTES Save quotes or other text snippets from pages (or PDFs), highlight quotes on the page. SAVE IMAGES Save images with pages - either pictures directly from the page or copy-pasted screenshots via a tool like Snipping Tool or Paint. TAGS WITH VALUE Advanced tagging: you can add values to the tags. For example, to record a page’s author, add a tag like “Author: <author’s name>”. Or, when searching for products and comparing good websites with alternative offerings, add tags to pages such as “Product: <product name>” or “Price: <product price>”. You can group and sort by tags and values separately on the all notes -page. RESEARCH UNDER SEPARATE TOPICS All your pages and searches will be saved under topics that you define. This helps keep your different research topics - be it work, school or hobbies - separated from each other. SAVE YOUR GOOGLE OR GOOGLE SCHOLAR SEARCHES When studying a topic in-depth, save searches to remember what search terms you’ve used, which ones got great results and how far into the results you have looked. By default, search saving is turned off, it can be activated for each Google search tab separately. HELPFUL SEARCHING OPTIONS Cross out and hide search results that are not useful. Instantly add notes and tags to results straight in your Google search. OVERVIEW OF SAVED RESEARCH A special all notes -page gives a comprehensive overview of your topics, pages and searches. See your researched pages either in list or table format. Filter pages by text, tags, notes or bookmarks.

The most useful extension I have ever used.

After discovering Research Notes (RN) several months ago, I now use it whenever I open a web browser. It is the best extension for storing notes about individual web pages on a computer (not someone's server!) and comparing them later within topics, further refined by tags. • At first, I used RN just to store notes for future references when visiting a web page of interest to me. • Then, I found it was very helpful to see web pages (actually, their clickable URLs) about offerings on a produc...

WARNING: This extension just went crazy, creating close to 30 new _empty_ folders in my bookmarks. Developer, please update your app!

Research Notes creates on the top level just one bookmark folder (named "Research Notes" by default, but user can rename it). Under this folder Research Notes creates one bookmarks subfolder per each topic that user defines in RN. It is not conceivable there could be 30 empty folders either at top level or beneath it (there can't be empty topics in RN). If you really wish to look into what happened here, pleaser write under Support tab or to e-mail, what exactly happened - where did the empty bookmark folders appear exactly and what seemed to trigger it. Otherwise I seriously doubt RN had anything to do with this and I do consider posting this under review as either uninformed or malicious.
