Zotero soon is Everywhere

Whereas most reference managers are either standalone applications and/or web-based, Zotero works as a Firefox plugin. This approach has many advantages, but is not for everybody. So today Zotero announced Zotero Everywhere:

  • A browser pluging for Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari and Google Chrome, and standalone desktop version for Windows, Mac and Linux
  • An expanded Zotero web API that gives developers full read and write access to all of Zotero’s features.

Zotero Everywhere goes beyond allowing users to use Zotero with other browsers. The enhanced API will give developers the chance to build an infrastructure around Zotero, from mobile applications to integration with other services. No dates were given about the availability of Zotero Everywhere. The project is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

    I’m very happy about this, although there are two things which concern me. 1. No timescale for the actual product to arrive. 2. How well it will be implemented compared with the Firefox version, which clearly inspires fierce loyalty. That said, the main thing is that this means Mendeley is no longer the only game in town should CiteULike fold.

    AJ, I would also be interested in the timescale. I suspect a beta version is still a long time away. I’m actually most interested in a better Zotero Web version that compares in features with the browser plugin.
