If you follow Maximum PC in print or online, it’s no secret that we loves us some Evernote. Why, in the past few days we featured the data collecting wunderkind as our Windows Phone 7 App of the Week. It shouldn’t come as any surprise then that given how smitten we are for what Evernote has to offer, we’ve also decided that Evernote Web Clipper should also be hoisted up on our geeky shoulders and declared our Browser Extension of the Week.
In order to rock Evernote’s Web Clipper extension in Chrome or Firefox, you’ll need to have either a free or premium Evernote account. It’s only fair: It is their extension after all. After installing Web Clipper and signing in, users are given the ability to save content any website they’re visiting with the click of a mouse. How much content you save on a given page is up to you--Just want to clip a single article? Web Clipper can do it up. Need to tuck away the whole page and read it later? Evernote’s got you covered there too. If you’re feeling indecisive, you can also opt to simply clip the page’s URL and stash it away in your Evernote account for future perusal on your PC, Mac or the smartphone platform of your choice.
Thanks to Web Clipper’s well thought out interface, once you’ve decided on what information you want to capture, your new data can easily be categorized, tagged and annotated for later review. Evernote Web Clipper is a must-have extension for current Evernote users or for anyone that wants to collect a staggering amount of web-based information at break-neck speeds.
Be sure to check in with Maximum PC every Thursday for another edition of Browser Extension of the Week.
