To help you keep your most research fresh in your mind, Scrible's Chrome extension automatically loads your most recent annotations while you browse the Web.

Applications for Education
Tools like Scrible are excellent for students to use when they're conducting online research. The benefit of using a tool like Scrible is that students can take notes on their bookmarks and bookmark only the parts of a website that they need to reference in their reports. Saving bookmarks in this manner saves time when you go back to visit a site because you'll immediately see what it was that promoted you to bookmark it in the first place.

Students can get a free Scrible account that has double the storage capacity of the standard free account.
