  • (2023-11-13) Tural Suleymanzade: Thanks for this one. That would be awesome to search notes and import notes. In other case its awesome
  • (2023-09-25) Frederick Schude: Doesn't work with japanese text.
  • (2023-08-31) Gabriel Tejada: I like and think it serves its purpose. Three things I would like to add is: 1) to be able to adjust/transform the size of the post it 2) being more options in what's written in the post it( i.e bolding, italics, etc.). 3) Allow to use the post its on their own without needing to highlight it I just like having as much customization as possible and having this would make it perfect and worthy of 5 stars
  • (2023-08-18) Kisha Caldwell: This Extension was good when I first downloaded it to use it. Now it is putting notes on pages where there should not be notes. Ex: I am using a management software, in which different people all have different profile matters, which used different web addresses within the same software. I make a note for one, and when I go to someone else's matter page, I see the same note in their matter as well. Not useful to me at this stage, but a good concept and will be fabulous to use once bugs are fixed.
  • (2023-08-15) Чижик Пыжик: Good extension. Please, add support for exporting data.
  • (2023-06-18) Yan Feng: 非常简洁好用的插件,如果能有个快捷键自定义 方便快速highlight就好了,不知道还能不能等到更新
  • (2023-06-09) Ian Teves: This is amazing! so helpful. But can you please consider adding a feature of adding a hide notes feature where the notes and their icons are no longer visible. So that when I full screen the video it wont be visible anymore. And if you have more time maybe adding the feature to group pages of where notes was placed so I can access whatever I was trying to learn quickly.
  • (2023-05-28) Bastien Velitchkine: Annotating every book I read has really been a game-changer. And now I can bring that to the web thanks to this simple and effective extension. However, there's a missing feature: a proper export. You can export annotations on an annotated page basis, but not all annotations at ounce. I'd find this feature reassuring, I'd hate to loose what I've written or to be forever stuck in the extension, in case I want to repurpose my annotations.
  • (2023-04-12) Avery Del Miller: Amazing. Super useful, would love some way to backup notes or sync between devices-- would be amazing.
  • (2023-03-28) Melvin Nava (MEL): Very useful extension. Thanks!. Please consider adding a single shortcut key to jump/navigate thru a webpage highlights.
  • (2023-03-21) Belay Mulat: Doesn't work in all sites.
  • (2023-03-19) Mohammad Hosseini: I like it. helpful and easy to use
  • (2023-02-23) Adwind Liu: 如果能加两个快捷键自定义就好了 现在只有一个激活插件的快捷键 加一个记笔记高亮和记笔记的快捷键最好了
  • (2023-01-10) 康龙杰: 好用是好用 但是经常丢笔记,过一段时间丢一次,不知道为什么
  • (2022-12-30) Not Sure: Feature Request: Remove the max height limit from the sticky note when resizing it. Or, increase it by at least 5x. Why is it even limited to such a short height? Sometimes when I'm reading a page I like to pull up the sticky note on the side of the body's text & take notes or summarize sections of text. Feature Request: Change text color to inverse of highlighted color. Many times I highlight and cannot see the text. An example of a good implementation of this would be the Chrome extension: "Super Simple Highlighter". Feature Request: As the height of a sticky note is increased there is a proportional amount of space at the bottom of the sticky note that becomes unusable. As in, about 25% of the sticky note becomes unusable wasted space when the sticky note height is increased to max. Why?? I'd like to see this space become usable. If you're still unsure what I mean to test it out: open a sticky note, increase it's height to max, and fill the note with text from top to bottom. (Actually, fill past the bottom).
  • (2022-12-13) robin周: 宝藏插件!!
  • (2022-12-07) Robert Klinger: Very nice and helpful tool. Would be nice to categorize pages/notes and the possibility to delete "outdated" pages within beanote.
  • (2022-12-06) Laurent: Doesn't work on Edge
  • (2022-11-14) BG: If you add the option to only show pop-up at right-click... I this might be a winner. ... also maybe add some more expressive colours thanks
  • (2022-10-23) Shmuel: not consistent, work sometimes
  • (2022-10-07) Sergey F. Example: Works in Chrome (vanilla), didn't work in Vivaldi
  • (2022-10-06) Cee S: This doesn't work on man large sites. Ie indeed, even on this chrome review page. no popup from this extension. Tried on wiki it works fine.
  • (2022-09-13) Greg M: There is no way of exporting your notes should you want to backup them up or even import them into another install in another Chromium based browser. Look elsewhere unless you want your notes held captive Just lost all my notes for an entire website. What a failure. Extension also causes issue with Canada Post site when you attempt to chat with their virtual assistant. The chat becomes useless with the extension enable. The text input field becomes unusable and links posted by the assistant are no clickable. You can not add particular sites to an ignore list. The option disable extension on the current site does not stick/work
  • (2022-09-10) Azmath: Very nice idea, but a few limitations: 1) There is no way to download highlights, only notes are downloaded. 2) It cannot be backed up, so if you change browser/laptop, everything is gone unless you have downloaded it somewhere. 3) No way to export to google doc.
  • (2022-09-07) DOT: The extension works great on webpages! However, this extension does not allow your to highlight / add sticky note to PDFs saved in your local drive, even with the "Allow access to file URLs" enabled in the Chrome extension settings for Beanote.
  • (2022-08-30) m world: This extension does not provide way of data migration or backup. It is fatal for to use it as note application.
  • (2022-08-11) Joao Pedro Favoretti: That is awesome, exactly what i was looking for. But something that i wasnt think about before using it, is that it should identify text color before adding the new background color. Adding notes to white text is a problem.
  • (2022-07-30) Jackson Alloyce: Anyone knows how to save the notes in google sheets?
  • (2022-07-24) jestin jacob cherian: this is something i have been searching for. Simple and efficient
  • (2022-06-23) marisophi lara: It's good. Simple, so just what I needed. But it doesn't seem to work on .pdfs, which is what I mostly needed it for. :/ It does work well in common webpages, just not .pdfs >~> whether they're hosted locally or on the web. So maybe change that in the near future, please...? Otherwise, nice extension. EDIT: Scratch that. It deleted everything I had highlighted, even in normal webpages. Stil sad, tho. It did seem promising.
  • (2022-05-29) Shawn K: I've been using it a while now and it is always reliable, unintrusive, and effective. Thank you to the developers.
  • (2022-04-24) Bryan Chi Music: This is genius!! And the feature that lets you search all pages with annotations basically can replace any bookmark saver! just need to be able to backup to cloud drive or sync, please add this and it will be perfect!
  • (2022-04-14) Outsider Web: 希望作者能够加入同步笔记的功能
  • (2022-03-23) CaboLabs Health Informatics: The extension seemed exactly what I needed, after finishing taking notes on a page, I clicked on download as html and the extension does nothing, then I tried as docx and doesn't download either. Without downloading I can't share my notes with my team, which makes the extension useless for what I need it.
  • (2022-03-13) zeek lee: 能加上不同下划线的功能就更好了
  • (2022-03-03) Jim Doria: Nice little tool. I've liked it so far with light use, mostly on ebay. No ability to bulk delete notes is a problem though. Seems like you have to go to each page where you have notes and delete them one at a time? Really arduous. Unless I missed something.
  • (2022-02-06) Marisol Méndez: Es muy buena, funciona como deberia. Me gustaria que contara con la opción de crear tu cuenta para respaladar los datos pero por lo demás esta bien.
  • (2022-01-18) Lam Nguyen: It is really really useful for me, many tks to your team🤩
  • (2022-01-17) Tamás Jakab: Not bad but... If you insert a long text on a sticky note the scrollbar will be almost unseen because it is so thin. I was searching for the rest of the text, but only accidentally saw that the area scrollable because the text area hight is reached.
  • (2021-12-16) Simon: Very useful and clean feature! Uses it a lot! Great extension!
  • (2021-11-29) Tom Luo: This is a really good tool!!! But one of my concerns is it doesn't support backup and restore. This is very important to me because more notes you add with this extenstion, more important to keep the data safe. I don't want to lose all the notes suppose if i need to re-install my operating system. With some investigation, I've found all the data is actually saved in C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\IndexedDB\chrome-extension_nikccehomlnjkmgmhnieecolhgdafajb_0.indexeddb.leveldb So I could manually backup and restore these files. I'm using Edge. The path would look like a bit different if you use Chrome. Hope it can help others who has same concern.
  • (2021-11-24) William Zsolnai: DON'T USE IT! worked just fine until... I've been working for a day on annotating a long-form article for half a day, then it decided to delete the entire thing as soon as I finished. Lost an entire day of work. Bottom line: Stay away! P.S to the developers the plugin would be awesome if this didn't happen. Maybe adding a cloud syncing backup function would help, I'm not sure what happened
  • (2021-11-14) sc z: Good extension absolutely.Markdown support would be even better.
  • (2021-11-09) Michel Lanry: Comment supprimer une note ?
  • (2021-11-09) Ha Dieu Huong: I love it but it is very inconvenient if I use another advice as my note will be disappered as a whole. So I'd love if you can create some sort of website, account or something so that we can save our notes in it. Looking forward for it!
  • (2021-11-08) Siwen Zhang: 首先感谢大佬!超棒的程序! 其次想问一下本地存储的路径是什么,想导出本地存储放到另一台电脑上,但是不知道存储的路径
  • (2021-10-30) ismail: wow cool
  • (2021-10-26) Somalysia Nop: Not working at all.
  • (2021-10-26) r w: Expect to browse all notes in a full screen tab for browsing and finding notes easily.
  • (2021-10-13) Yunus Emre INCE: I like it

Latest issues

  • (2018-10-15, v:1.1.2) Kate Robertus Vilain: Are you still actively updating this extension?
    I love this extension, but it does need a few mods to be truly helpful. For me, the main problem is no way to scroll back through all my past highlights/notes rather than only retrieving them by searching in the tiny window for a tag/word. Without this or a way to export, my historical notes are virtually inaccessible to me.
  • (2018-10-03, v:1.1.2) Annotations Disappearing
    I use this application with my students. They sign onto their network account using different computers each class; however, their highlights keep disappearing each time they login. Is there a way to keep their highlights/annotations saved to their Google accounts so they can see them regardless of the physical computer they are using?
  • (2018-09-26, v:1.1.2) Duplication Glitch
    There seems to be a minute glitch where if a highlighted area covers two or more lines, the last letter and punctuation highlighted is duplicated after the highlighted area.
  • (2018-09-17, v:1.1.2) John Marciniak: Highlighted notes disappearing
    Although when I click the "B" Icon in my Chrome tray the notes show up, when I load up the website that I highlighted the text from, it is no longer highlighted. Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this?
  • (2018-09-16, v:1.1.2) Eran Arbel: Notes keep getting deleted
    Apparently, all my notes keep disappearing. This is very troubling.
  • (2018-09-04, v:1.1.2) Synchronisation
    Can we have some way to synchronise notes across the profile? Can it just use the Chrome way of doing it?
  • (2018-08-31, v:1.1.2) it doesn't work
    i cannot get it to work. everything is enabled but don't get the highlighting, etc options

    Please add "sync ability" to the extension so that we can see our notes in every Chrome we logged in!
