Once you’ve installed the extension in your browser, anything you search for on the Web will be aggregated automatically, with ‘stories’ created of your favorite content.

So, if you want to revisit some information you’ve previously read or browsed online that’s based on the same topic that you’re watching in a video, you click the ‘C’ button, and you’ll be served with a snapshot of stories you’ve come across over the years.
