Overview

Highlight Web pages; stored in your browser bookmarks, searchable, and recreated automatically when you revisit a page

Yawas lets you highlight and comment web pages in multiple colors. Your highlights are stored in the built-in Chrome Bookmarks API (you need to check Sync if you want them to be synchronized across all your devices). Yawas automatically recreates the highlights when you reopen web pages. All functions are available from the context-menu (Ctrl-Shift-Y for Yellow) To highlight, simply select some text and choose the color from the context menu. To add a note or comment, mouse over an existing highlight and pick "Add Note" (or the keyboard shortcut -N). To recolor or delete a highlight, select some of its text and choose another color or "Delete" from the context-menu. You can also quickly search all your bookmarks with "Yawas - Search" or edit the current page's highlights using "Yawas - Edit".

Just doesn't work. Highlighted page then refresh, 80% of highlights are gone, then add a new highlight and refresh, all gone except the last highlight. It only has one job to do and it doesn't do that. Not fit for purpose.

It works pretty good for me, I like it, but it has a feature that bothers me and a bug(I guess?): Feature: I can only find my highlighted pages under the folder of the month. I highlight those sentences because I might want to get back to it later, like months or even years later and I won't remember which folder should I look into - I believe if there would be a folder called 'new' (where the newly highlighted pages go) and if we could make new, custom folders and move the pages from one to ...

Spent a lot of time highlighting different parts of my book only to discover that most of them are now missing. Most definitely a deal breaker for me, I won't be using this again.
