What is the Web Clipper?

The Web Clipper scrapes the title, text, and article image, along with some additional metadata, from any web article you are currently reading on your browser. All this gets saved into FIBRES for your further processing and sense-making.

Once the article is saved into FIBRES, you can edit the text, link the article with your other content, and assess and categorize the article according to the criteria your FIBRES Account has been configured with.
