An extension for organizing and documenting internet research.
Search Assist records your search history, along with any Notes or Tags you make on each page, under a Search Name you enter. In this way, you can review, edit, document, and continue searches much more efficiently than the standard search history and bookmarks. Separate searches can be saved and documented under different search names - and saved to a PDF file with live links for documentation. If you are frequently frustrated when doing extended Google searches - emailing yourself links, making a document of notes off to the side, saving items to a note taking app, and trying to keep track of bookmarks, Search Assist can help you out. The work was motivated by my daughter's research during her PhD. Like me, she needed a better tool to document her searches. I hope you find it helpful! Enjoy!

Now I can use Search Assist to easily organize links by topic as I search. I love the handy note-taking function and the ability to edit my search record. Now I can't image doing research without it!

I really like the ability to switch between continuous recording and manual recording. The tool can either record every page you visit or only pages you tell it to (eg the pages you find most helpful). So often I remember finding a great page, but can't find it in my browser history. Never again!
