It's mostly good but no direct way to import to BibTeX from the popup. It's good to find the paper without opening another window, when you actually click "Cite" in the popup itself, it only gives you 5 options. BibTeX is at the bottom, which you have to click and let it open in a new tab, which you have to close again. I wish there was an option to just have BibTeX or at least that with others with that at the top. I even enabled the "Show links to import citations into: BibTeX" under "Bibliography manager" but noticed no difference.

Love this extension! It helps so much when I need to quickly find the citation for a publication I am looking at. Favourite extension by far.
