Never forget important sites with Evernote Web Clipper.
If you’ve got the development bug, get Firebug.
When you need to collaborate on Web research, or just keep all sites that interest you readily at hand, don’t copy and e-mail links...use iCyte. It lets you “cyte” pages or selections--saving the link and a snapshot of the page as you found it--and include them in projects to share with people you know, or total strangers. You can add tags and notes, too, and once you create an account, the iCyte sidebar keeps your projects and saved cytes in view as you surf...er, research.
iCyte, therefore I remember.
LeechBlock isn’t something to pack on your next camping trip, it’s a productivity booster that blocks access to distracting sites while you work. It lets you create 6 sets of rules to apply to troublesome sites, including what days and times sites are blocked, which sites users are redirected to, and more. LeechBlock works great for individuals, but its password-protected controls and ability to export and import settings can keep everyone on a network on the job. That’s a good thing, right?
Get back to work with LeechBlock.
We admit it, we’re hooked on our morning coffee and on Morning Coffee. It lets us quickly add sites to lists for each day of the week (and weekends, or every day) to quickly access sites at those times. Gotta check out the news sites first thing each morning, or launch all your favorite sites that update every Thursday? With Morning Coffee, they can be launched together with just a click. Its even easier than adding cream and sugar.
If it’s Friday, we must be reading the Onion A.V. Club.
Read It Later
We’re always doing things later...writing thank-you notes, meeting deadlines...so its no surprise we dig Read It Later. Just click a checkmark in your address bar to add the current page to your list of things to read later. When you have spare time--on a commute, say, with the Read It Later iPhone app--you don’t even need an Internet connection to access your list and catch up on your reading. Install it today...or, y’know, later.
Procrastinate effectively with Read It Later.
Do you use Toodledo, the service that lets you manage your schedule and send it to an online calendar to share with others or read on the Toodledo iPhone app? Then you’re way more organized than we are. You’ve probably already scheduled time to install the Toodledo add-on that lets you quickly add Web pages, text selections, and general to-dos right from your Firefox window. Well...good for you!
You have your to-do list, we have ours with Toodledo.
Researchers, rejoice. Zotero lets you surf news sites, academic databases, libraries, even Amazon and YouTube to save citations, links, snapshots of pages, and PDFs in a pop-up mini-app that lives in your Firefox window. There you can tag and add notes to your finds and organize them according to just about any parameters you can think of. All this can be synched to other computers running Zotero to follow you and your research across campus or the world. It even exports bibliographies and citations in almost any style you can think of when you finally get around to writing your dissertation.
Zotero’s iTunes-like interface is easy to use.
