Zotero Connector for Chrome is a browser extension aimed at Zotero users who want to quickly export a snapshot of the current page to the desktop client.

Zotero is a powerful application that can organize and manage various resources, including books, web posts, articles and documents in an easy manner and free of cost, too.

Since it is able to deal with web related content, the developing team made an effort and designed extensions for Chrome, Safari and Firefox that can make their experience with Zotero more comfortable.

The add-on is fairly simple to use and manages to save the time you’d invest in performing an export operation manually. Obviously, it depends on the desktop application, to which the resources are send through a command performed from the Chrome browser.

However, note that Zotero, the standalone program must be open in order for the transfer to be facilitated. As for the extension, deployment and usage have been designed to comply with the skills of an average user.

Simply drag and drop the CRX file over the Extension section of the browser and give it permission to install. Once it has been successfully accommodated inside Chrome, it will become available in the right-click menu of the navigator, allowing you to export the current web resource directly to Zotero.

A small balloon will pop up once the process has begun, notifying you when the operation has been completed. If Zotero is not open, the extension can be configured to save the content to your Zotero online account, via the Preferences section.

Overall, Zotero Connector for Chrome can bring great benefit to anyone that uses Zotero on a daily basis. Content can be transferred to the desktop applications in just two clicks.
