Journal improfane's Journal: Page Comments

I really need a way to easily comment on a web page, I'm not talking about a separate medium for comments, such as a service. I need to be able to locally add comments directly to a page. It shouldn't edit the actual web page cache but render upon it.

Perhaps a toolbar, where I click add a comment. Click somewhere on the page, a textbox should appear inline or as an overlay to the webpage and I should be able to comment on the page itself. It's a bit like those sticky note application in Office but on web page.

Sometimes I get an idea or remember something on a particular pragrapgh on a web page. Or perhaps a way to refine my thoughts on a issue without actually posting to the site author themself.

The comments themselves should be saved to my hard drive and when I reaccess the same webpage, I can see the same comment in the same place.

There should also be the option of viewing the text off the page, like all in one file, or as a sidebar in the web browser. Only problem is, what is the context of this comment? Perhaps a quotation of the element I commented on.

If anybody knows of any applications or extensions that do this please leave a comment in this journal entry.
