Zotero has announced it develops a standalone version of its software that can be used together with other web browsers such as Google Chrome or MS Internet Explorer. This is still a developers‘ version, and the Firefox add-on will remain the primary version of Zotero for still some time to come. However, this move seems to be inspired by the Mendeley Desktop system which already shares some, yet not all features Zotero also has integrated lately, most prominently, the web-based hosting of bibliogaraphic data and social networking tools.
