If you like reading, annotating and clipping web content, you might be interested to know that Evernote has just released a new update to their Web Clipper for Safari.

The Evernote web extension is redesigned and includes Clipper markup tools to highlight and annotate content in different colors, as well block out content and add layered text on a page.

If you’re an existing user of the Evernote Clipper, restart your Safari web browser and the clipper extension should automatically update. If you have never installed the extension, click here to download and install the Web Clipper for Safari.

With the new clipper, annotated articles can of course be saved to your Evernote account. The clipper makes use of a smart filing system that selects the notebook and tags it thinks the article should be saved to. But you can change the selected notebook and tags if it’s not correct.

The clipper is similar to the Chrome version. When you enable the clipper it selects the main article and fades the other content behind it. Clicking on “Simplified Article” takes it into full distraction-free reader view.

If you prefer to save the entire article, click on Article and then save. When you click on Bookmarks, it saves the title, URL, a short snippet of text and a thumbnail image based on the article. You can also update saved articles with additional annotations. And as you might expect, the clipper allows you to share content to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Evernote’s updated clipper should be welcomed by Evernote and Safari users; however, this reviewer did find the clipper to be a little buggy and some of the tools tricky to use. Let us know about your experience with it.

    Update to the Evernote Web Clipper used on Windows, and in Chrome browser.

    Just installed Opera browser, Evernote Web Clipper extension for it, hey presto - email clipped - full email captured!

    Will try again later - see if it's still hanging on in there.

    Yes, apologies if I didn't make that clear. This does refer to the web version of Evernote clipper.
    When it first came out as allowing you to clip an email (full content) it was brilliant, then after a while I noticed it was only clipping a link, NOT the full email.
    Problem, because I thought it was clipping the email and therefore the content could be related to other items I was clipping, but no the 'thread' was broken.
    Hope this clarifies the situation.

    If it's similar to the Chrome version - it does not clip emails correctly - be warned!

      Hey David, thanks for letting us know this. Are you referring to clipping emails in the web browser, right?
