Is there any site/tool that get a web page URL and generate a BibTeX entry for it automatically.

Zotero will do this after some steps, but I just use Opera and Zotero has not not an Opera-Extension (yet).

I am looking for a web site like ottobib.com. It is given an ISBN an returns citation instantly. I need a site that simply get URL and return web citation.

@HarishKumar Its Web Importer works with opera, but it just import articles no wepage and no-bibtex – PHPst May 21 '12 at 4:11
Borderline for on/off-topic: seems more about web applications than TeX in many ways. – Joseph Wright Jun 2 '12 at 21:53
@JosephWright BibTeX (just) is used in TeX world. So is it not better that all question about BibTeX be asked here? So where is better place for this question? – PHPst Jun 3 '12 at 1:46
@Reza The issue here is that an answer seems to require web programming and some insight into the data formats of webpages/online databases, rather than into TeX, BibTeX, etc. As such, the question is 'is it likely that someone with expertises in TeX be able to answer'. I'd certainly say this is a borderline case (I can see arguments in favour of the question as well as against). I suggest you open a question on the meta site, pointing to this and making the case for reopening. We can then discuss it there. – Joseph Wright Jun 3 '12 at 7:52
