I’d love to see a native web highlighter with similar ux as the pdf annotation system or the video annotation system :
- open any website on a left pane or insert an iframe with a webpage url
- highlight and copy references via a right click menu or highlighter to a logseq page (copy the text and turn it into a link, similar to the ‘copy link to highligh’/text fragments from Chrome 90+)
PS : Chrome introduced ‘Text Fragments’ since v90 via the
copy link to highlight right-click menu : basically one can select any part of a web page, right click and ‘copy link to highlight’ to get an url in that format :
clicking on the link opens a web browser with the saved url and it highlights the text fragment.
so in logseq, instead of opening a browser window, it would scroll to the text fragment from the iframe ?
here’s mockup with a browser on the left side, using Chrome’s ‘copy link to highlight’
obviously, it would require a way to extract the text from the link to highlght, and then instead of opening a web browser tab, it would scroll the page from the logseq browser pane or the iframe ?
