annotate

This is a greasemonkey script to allow you to annotate web pages and then send them to other people to read these annotations. See what's new.

In its current form you need to be running greasemonkey on firefox. If you know how to install these, here is the script.

   annotate.user.js

Usage

Once installed, here's how you use this thing.

  1. Whenever you visit a web page and want to attach a note you can double click where you'd like that note to be. You'll be prompted for message, and then a note will appear at the location where you were prompted. Here's an image after I attached three notes to a page and here is the link (if you haven't installed the script, you won't see anything, yet).

  2. When you are ready to send this link to someone or save it (or whatever), go to the the ToolsToolsGreasemonkeyToolsUser Script CommandsReload with annotations → menu item and your page will reload with the appropriate URL.

Installation

To use you must be running greasemonkey on firefox. So, I'll mention both.

  1. Install firefox.
  2. Install greasemonkey.
  3. Go to the link annotate.user.js a click the Install button in the upper right. If you don't see this button you haven't installed greasemonkey correctly -- in which case return to step #2.

New

As of version 0.2, a new option is added in the Tools menu called Reload + mail with annotations that will first prompt you for your recipient's name and your name (both of which you can leave blank)

and then present you with a link to mail a tinyurl'ed version of this page to someone.

Then you can click that link and mail the new smaller link with a little description to someone.
