Zotero connectors dowload page

Connectors allow your web browser to save citations to your Zotero library.

The Zotero downloads page should automatically detect your browser and give you a link.

Each browser has its own version of the Zotero connector, so if you use Chrome, Firefox, and Safari you'll need to install all three.
