How to install browser connector

A connector is an icon added to your web browser that automatically detects content that you may want to save to Zotero.  You can install connectors for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.  Safari's connector is bundled with Zotero, so you will need to enable it from the Extensions pane in the Safari settings.
