Using zotero for referencing.

I've just installed and I've been using zotero which is a free Firefox plugin.

It's seems very good at storing references (just 1 click is needed when reading an abstract on PubMed) and, if you set vancouver style as the default, you can just drag and drop a fully formatted reference into a web form. Like this1. OK it doesn't do the author names exactly like we are used to on our diabetes diploma course but in the zotero record in your library the reference also includes the PMID, the DOI, the ISSN of the journal and so on. I think it is very useful.

Has anyone else had any experience with zotero? Or are there even better ones out there?
