Only google chrome? Bah. Fuck google chrome. I'm sure it's awesome, but I will miss out until there is a firefox plugin or bookmarklet.

I also think that regardless of the browser being used, if you view an Annotary url ( http://annotary.com/bookmarks/444 for example), the highlights should show up. This doesn't work unless you have the chrome extension installed from what I can tell.

Hey Michael, thanks so much for posting your feedback.

The highlights should show up on the /bookmarks/444 link now, regardless of whether you have the extension. I can see them without the extension for that example. Is there one where you weren't able to see the highlights?

Per the Google Chrome issue, yeah, it's kind of lame that it's Chrome only. We should have Safari and Firefox extensions in the next few weeks as we ramp up all the improvements we're making for the beta.

Ah, interesting. It's using the same JS as the extension to load in highlights, so maybe there's some chrome-specific code in there. I'll take a look.

Hi Michael,

Just deployed a fix. You can now see other users' highlights even if you're not in Chrome. Thanks for reporting the bug. I'll let you know when we've got a Firefox version of the extension for you.

Cheers,
Travis

Today we've just put out our initial Firefox version, so you no longer need to use Google Chrome to use Annotary.

Log into the site with Firefox and visit http://annotary.com/signup/install to download the Firefox plugin.
