If you are researching a topic online, probably you simply bookmark the relevant visited pages as a way to store and organize the necessary information. While this is the common way to do things, it is not the most efficient way.

Enter iCyte. It is an add-on for your browser that lets you highlight text on a web page and save only the highlighted portion, annotate it, add relevant tags and save it online. You may also organize these bookmarks into separate projects and share them with others.

highlight text on a web page

To get started, install the browser plugin and get yourself an account. When you are at a webpage that has something you need for later, you may highlight a specific part or the whole webpage and click on iCyte button in your browser toolbar. Next you have to add the bookmark to an existing project or assign it to a new one. Then enter tags, optionally add notes and hit Save button.

You can then access all your bookmarks from your online account, organized by projects and by tags. All the bookmarked pages are archived on site’s servers, so you won’t have a problem of broken links.
