More About Where's That Paper?

I find myself frequently searching the web for papers that I have opened already on my computer. Whether it is in the process of writing a paper or searching for existing ideas, I search for authors of titles of papers that I know I have once glimpsed at. At some point, I either download the paper or add it to the favorites bar. In any case, this process is manual and I thought could use some code to automate it.

Using the extension has a zero learning curve – just install it and continue working as normal – it will guide you without you knowing.

The extension is very simple: it identifies when you are reading a scientific paper (according to the domain) and then automatically adds this paper, with the proper author list, year etc., to your favorites bar under a designated folder. Then, when you type a search in Chrome's search bar for an author or a title the relevant results from the favorites pop in. One might also explicitly browse in the favorites to see all papers he read.

The extension on works on a specific list of domains that include:
eprint.iacr.org, arxiv.org, eccc.weizmann.ac.il, epubs.siam.org, research.microsoft.com, citeseerx.ist.psu.edu, ac.elscdn.com, www.sciencedirect.com, download.springer.com, link.springer.com, delivery.acm.org, proceedings.mlr.press and journals.aps.org.

It is not too difficult to add a new domain, and I'll them upon your request!

A bonus feature: Click on the extension’s icon and you can download a bib file containing (a nice formatting of) the DBLP bibtex records of all papers added to the favorites.

Security: People are usually concerned with installing extensions and they have good reasons for that. The extension I wrote does not leak any information to me or and other third party. I do not know how to reassure that this is indeed the case other than giving you my word and publishing the source code online (see Github link for the sources).

I'd be glad to hear any feedback.
