We’re lucky enough to have readers from all over the world like Piyush from India.  Regarding our article about the ability to draw on webpages in the new Spartan Browser, Piyush wrote: I am using Chrone Browser. How do I highlight or draw circle on a web page?

Now you can always do this in any browser by taking a screenshot of a web page and opening a program like Paint to add circles or highlights, but if you’re using Chrome, there’s a handy extension for that.

Open your Chrome browser and click Apps in the upper-left corner.

If you’re looking to highlight, there are several extensions available, including Yawas Web Highlighter.  You can find them in the Chrome store and install them much in the same way as Page Marker.
