BrainTool is a Chrome extension that can be used as a unique bookmarks/tabs manager but which also synchronizes with a plain text emacs org-mode style file on your Google Drive to become a more all encompassing personal knowledge management tool.

The BrainTool panel in Chrome uses the org-mode tree structure but concentrates on the links within your notes thus unifying, at least for me, two primary ways to capture information.

Currently it is at a minimal MVP-for-me level of functionality so I have not yet published it. That said I’d love comments from a handful of early adopters.

If you want to try it, clone the repo and create it as a local extension:
