Wow, the new Evernote Web Clipper for Chrome that was released last week is beyond terrific! I loved the old clipper, but this incorporates the best of the Clipper, Clearly and Skitch all in one easy to use panel. This really streamlines the use of Evernote even more.
Once installed, clicking on the elephant in your toolbar brings up a slide out options pane on the right side of the screen. Choose to capture a full web page, just the main article on a page, or the URL with a snippet of the text. Or use the ‘Simplified Article‘ option to do what Clearly does – strips the page down to simple to read text with an option to highlight content. And finally, the Screenshot option comes complete with Skitch annotation options.
Select which folder to store the note in, tag it and save it. And oh so handy, there’s an option to share the note with others right there on the side panel. Once the note is saved, the confirmation panel even offers the option to set a reminder on the note. Did I say WOW yet?
I’ve been using Evernote since early 2008 and also teach workshops on Evernote. I’m impressed at how it just keeps getting better and better.
