glossed.it (or Gloss) is an online text highlighter service that helps to save important text and read saved highlights later on. You need to create a free account so that you can highlight any online quote and can access saved quotes from your Gloss account.

You need to click on that bookmarklet to highlight and save the required text. After this, that text will be saved to highlights on your account.
It’s bookmarklet can be installed on any web browser. I have tested it with Firefox and Google Chrome and it worked absolutely fine.
