Legal Citation Firefox Addon

Jureeka is a Firefox add-on that looks for legalcitations in ordinary webpages and turns them into hyperlinks that lead to a free version of the cited source (mostly U.S. law). Jureeka weaves together dispersed sources, creating the impression of a rudimentary (but free) Lexis-like legal research experience on the open web. It also has a toolbar that lets you search for materials by citation, and a button that looks for HTML versions of PDF pages (so as to hyperlink the cites).
