It would be a lot easier (and get better reviews) if it had an icon like an extension up in the strip across the top of the page (whatever that's called). I can't remember it's available because I can't see it.

I think I could use it, but I have no idea how to open it. The add-on gave me the instructions when I installed it, but I don't know how to do that. Have you people ever thought about the youngsters? They would have no idea how to open this! And you do not know how mad I am!

Scrible is a godsend for internet researchers. Scrible offers the easiest, most effective way to save, organize, and save web content. HOWEVER, Scrible does have a slight learning curve; and that's the reason for the negative reviews. Those unhappy users didn't take a little time to figure out how Scrible works.

is essentially a tool for help on citations. it needs very suspicious permissions that it most likely doesn't need. you could make citations without this app. it isn't very useful
