Backpack Publish Firefox Extension

April 25, 2007

Most Backpack users have probably already discovered the Backpack Extension for Firefox made by Ben Mills, which places a Backpack icon/menu in your Firefox toolbar for easy access to all of your pages, lists, calendar and reminders.

If you love the convenience of that add-on, you’ll love Andrew Kortina’s amazing and incredibly useful Backpack Publish Firefox extension. Backpack Publish gives you the web clipping abilities of Google Notebook right in your Backpack account. Clipping of images is not yet supported, but clips do include a link back to the original source.

Once you’ve installed the extension, all you need to do is highlight some text on a page, click the icon in your toolbar, choose the page you want, and select whether you want the clip to be a note or a list item. You can even turn highlighted text into a reminder. This extension provides functionality that the 37 Signals team should have implemented into their app long ago.

If you’ve been wavering back and forth between Google Notebook and Backpack for note taking and to do list management, this extension will definitely turn the tide in Backpack’s favor.
