Highlight Web pages; stored online and recreated automatically when you revisit a page

What is Yawas?

'Yawas' is an Edge add-on that enhances the user's web browsing experience by allowing highlighting of web pages in various colors. This makes it easy to mark and add comments to important parts of web pages, with the added advantage of storing these highlights online. When the user revisits a previously highlighted page, Yawas auto-restores the highlights, eliminating the need to remember or manually recreate them. Accessible through context menus, ‘Yawas’ also allows the addition of notes to highlighted sections and the ability to quickly navigate bookmarked pages.

Highlight Web pages; stored online and recreated automatically when you revisit a page Yawas lets you highlight and comment web pages in multiple colors.

Your highlights are stored using the built-in storage API. Yawas automatically recreates your 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 access all your bookmarks with "Yawas - Search" or edit the current page's bookmark (including its labels/tags) with "Yawas - Edit".

The tool is so useful and will a great time saver for those who have to take lot of notes from web pages and club it together. The tool helps to highlight the key points we wish and the page when revisited will retain the same highlights we made. The even more benefit is that the option to extract all our highlights to our file. Great appreciation for the developer
