Fireclip: A Firefox Addon To Monitor Specific Portions Of Web Page

January 17, 2009

in Tools & Extras

Fireclip is a cool firefox plugin that enables you to monitor the specific portions of different sites. With fireclip you can select specific portions of any web page and put them all on a single page. Now next time you would not have to go to all those sites to check for an update in those specific selected portions of web pages, all you need to do to get updated is to just reload that single page on which you have put those specific clippings.

Activating fireclip is easy just hit ALT & Q together, or go to Tools, select Fireclip. Selecting fireclip will open small fireclip window in the left of the window. Now from this sidebar window you can start selecting your favourite clip with called “Select Clip”. All your selected clips will be shown in a sidebar tab called “My Gallery”.

Check out webclip, a quick and easy way to share text clippings from a page. Allows to highlight text on a page, right click to create a unique short URL to share the text, add tags, and save the clipping.

Great tool for anyone researching for a paper.

This is great tarash. I like It is more than just a text, It also clips images, videos, links. They say all at one place, and sure it is.

the best is the firefox extension. Dont have to copy and paste, all with just a right click.

I tried to use it, but like much more another Firefox extension. It’s “PageSlices addon for Firefox”.
“PageSlices addon for Firefox” don’t keep web slices locally but on its site. So you can access your web slices from any computer where Firefox installed!
