Chrome: Albeit a little late, Evernote has jumped on the improved web site readability bandwagon and introduced a new feature called Clearly. Much like most browser extensions and bookmarklets, it takes a given web site and converts the layout into a more readable format. This makes clipping web content to Evernote a lot nicer as you won't have to deal with improper formatting as the page transitions to your notebook. More »
Evernote's Chrome extension might not be quite as powerful a tool as Evernote's Mac and PC apps, but it does make a great addition to any note-capturing addict's browser toolbox. The latest update adds common Evernote actions to Chrome's right-click menu, making grabbing a clipping or starting a new note even more convenient. "Clip this page," "clip selection" and "clip image" are now just a right-click away.
Evernote for Chrome has also gained the familiar "snippet view" from Evernote's desktop and mobile apps. To browse the compact snippet versions of all your notes, click the Evernote icon in the toolbar. For extra note-browsing efficiency, there's even a tab that shows your saved notes from the site you're currently viewing.
Smaller tweaks include speed improvements and background clipping. Yep, clipping now happens in the background, so you don't have to wait til your clip is saved before you leave a page.
Serious Evernote junkies will probably still want to feed their addiction with a desktop app, but the Chrome extension is great for work computers and other situations where it's not practical to install desktop software. It's also just plain convenient, especially now that you can save a clip with one click!
Once you sign in, the extension icon in your Omnibar will display a small, green dot to let you know it's ready to store your notes. When you're on a conversation which warrants a note, simply click the icon and enter your text into the pop-up and click save. You're limited to one note per message at the moment, but it's still a handy way to add a reminder to your conversations.
They're saved into your Google Docs storage, so you can access your raw notes from there as well. They're not very useful without the context of your Gmail conversation of course, but it's certainly a logical place to store the data.
Google Chrome: Chrome Notepad is an effective extension that syncs notes and even the last place you left off in your document across multiple computers, using Chrome's built-in bookmark sync functionality. More »
