The Scrible service streamlines the research and writing process for students and teachers, but is generally useful to anyone researching anything on the internet.
The Scrible Toolbar extension allows you to save and work with articles in Scrible while browsing the web.  Click the extension to launch our Toolbar on any webpage or PDF.  This will save it to your Scrible account and open up a Toolbar with tools to highlight, comment, and more.  If you revisit a page you've previously saved to your account with the Toolbar, the Toolbar will automatically launch and reload your annotations. 
Historically, teachers and students have had to manage multiple tools through the research and writing workflow. Scrible consolidates those tools in one place, streamlining a student's process of curating, annotating, citing and writing.  Our Toolbar lets you:
 - Save web pages, PDFs and database articles instantly
 - Highlight key facts and passages to refer to later
 - Annotate and add comments to capture first thoughts
Once pages are saved, in the Scrible Library users can:
 - Quickly browse and full text search through sources
 - Organize source information with categorical tags
 - Select sources to add to a bibliography

Risk impact

Scrible Toolbar requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Scrible Toolbar if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Scrible Toolbar is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Very helpful for analyzing medical research. I've tried many annotation programs and this is by far the best I have tried.

big sur always gets his due

This extension is actually genius and I question why it is so underrated. It literally makes using the internet for learning all the more useful.
