Yawas (Yet Another Web Annotation System) is a browser extension to highlight web pages and PDF documents. It works both for Chrome and Firefox.
As of August 2021, your annotations are stored in the built-in Chrome (or Firebox) Bookmarks. Since the chrome.bookmarks API only allows storing a URL and a title fields, Yawas stores your highlights inside the title field. To keep things clean, a new Yawas folder is created at the root of your Chrome Bookmarks.
There is also a new option allowing you to import your online Google Bookmarks into Chrome Bookmarks: click on the Yawas icon in your toolbar to show that option.
You can clone this repository and install the extension locally.
