What is the Web Clipper?

The Web Clipper is a piece of Javascript code added into your browser as a bookmark.  Once clicked, the Web Clipper saves the web page you are currently viewing into FIBRES, including its title, content, image, source, and some additional metadata.

How to install the Web Clipper

  1. Navigate to the top right corner of FIBRES and open the dropdown Menu.
  2. Click Install Web Clipper. A popup window with some instructions opens.
  3. Drag and drop the Add to FIBRES button into the favorites bar of your browser.

You can rename the Web Clipper bookmark without affecting its functionality. By default, it is called Add to FIBRES.
