Add notes to websites, including comments, links or even images. It can help you doing research on the web, remind you, etc. It is simple and easy to use.
About this Add-on
Note: If you are using the add-on RequestPolicy and you are not able to create notes, you have to allow all connections to "floatnotes:blank".
This extension makes it possible to create small notes on any web site. It is basic in functionality and design but has some valuable features:
- Markdown support: You can use Markdown to format the text of the note. That means you can also include links and images. Have a look at the basic syntax.
- Notes indicator: When scrolling on a web site, small labels at the top and
the bottom of the page show how many notes are above or below the current view.
You can also jump directly to a specific note via these indicators.
- Minimizing notes: Notes can be minimized to save space.
- Hide notes: All notes can be hidden with a single click.
- Simple design: To fit into any page easily and to not gain to much "attention",
the design of the notes is kept very simple.
- Locations: Specify the scope of a note.
New in version 0.6
- Immediate updates: Changes made to notes that are shared between (opened) (sub)pages, are reflected in the other tabs immediately.
- Keyboard shortcuts: Changes can be discarded via ESC and saved via CTRL+ENTER.
- Raise to top: Clicking or dragging a note makes it raise to top, meaning that it stays in front of all other notes on the page.
- Default color (expert option): The default color of notes can be changed via
extensions.floatnotes.color(I will try to integrate the possibility to change to color for individual notes easily as soon as possible).

- Notes Manager: Search, list and edit all your notes
- Real cross window updates
