We have a special feature just for that. Simply press the “tab” key. A window will appear in which the input-field is already activated.

If you have the chrome extension installed and you are logged in you can right click somewhere in chrome. In the appearing menu select “crib.ninja”. One of the points in there will be “Set active Collection” where you can choose which one should be active.

The collection which is set there will be the one new pages will get saved to. Depending on that will also the ninja-icon change when you are on a page which got already saved in the selected collection.

By default it is set to “shift” and “right mouse button”. However that can get changed in the plugin settings. Simply click with the right mouse button on the little ninja next to the address bar and select “Options”. On the appearing page you can then select the key and button you want to use instead.

We currently declare crib.ninja as “beta” because it is totally new and we know that our product is not perfect yet. Some users will for sure have one or the other issue or maybe see an error message or two. When that happens please inform us we will then try to fix the problems asap. Thanks a lot for understanding and for your help!

To be able to display you the information of the apartments, we have to visit the website first our self. Like you know opening a page takes some time and and varies a lot between different website. This plus the time it takes us to find the information on the page, creating a screenshot, saving everything and then sending it to you can take a while. Depending on how many people are currently requesting pages there is maybe an additional delay because we have sadly not unlimited resources. However normally it should not take longer then 5-10 seconds.

We are always working on speeding up the process but are still in a very early stage so please bear with us. Thanks!

The permanent collection is for everything you want to save long-term and that you can share with others. You can create as many of them as you want.

The temporary collection is a place where you can simply dump some pages. That gives you the possibility to inspect them further. The ones you then want to keep can then get promoted to the permanent collection and all other ones can simply get trashed. Each user has only one of it and it can not be shared. The collection which is currently active while being in the temporary one decides where entry get promoted to.

People can get added to a collection by clicking on the three yellow dots right of the collection name. There you can then select “Share Collection”.

If you save an apartment from a page that does not work or not all needed information gets displayed simply inform us. This can be done by clicking on the exclamation mark in the top right corner of the entry. We will then try to add support/fix the issue asap.
