Yawas for Google Chrome lets you highlight web pages in multiple colors and all your highlights are stored automatically in your Google Bookmarks.
When you revisit pages you have highlighted, Yawas will recreate the highlights for you.
All functions are available from the context-menu.
To highlight, select some text and choose the color from the context menu. To delete a highlight, right-click while your mouse is over and choose "Yawas - Delete" from the context-menu.
You can also quickly access all your bookmarks with "Yawas - Search" or edit the current page's bookmark (including its labels/tags) with "Yawas - Edit".
All options are also available through keyboard shortcuts. (e.g. Ctrl-Shift-Y for Yellow and Ctrl-Shift-D to Delete)
