The Tomfox extension for Firefox is a real boon for Tomboy addicts. It allows you to select a text fragment in any Web page and turn it into a new Tomboy note. So if you use Tomboy for storing research notes and links, Tomfox can save you a lot of unnecessary cutting and pasting.

 

Once installed, Tomfox adds the Create Tomboy Note command to the context menu. Select a text fragment in a Web page, right-click on the highlighted text and choose the Create Tomboy Note item from the context menu. This creates a new Tomboy note with the selected text. Better yet, Tomfox conveniently inserts a clickable link to the source Web page.
