After recently launching Evernote 5 for Windows desktops, the popular note-taking and archiving utility has updated its Web Clipper extension for Google Chrome browsers. The Web Clipper 6 update adds features from its various services, such as markup tools from Skitch, and a reader-friendly view from Clearly. And yeah, it’s got a whole design refresh too.
Now when you click the Evernote Web Clipper icon in the Chrome toolbar, a panel pops out of the sidebar, showing you all the features. You will see shortcuts to sections like tags and notebooks. As always, you can clip whole pages or selections.
So here’s what’s new in the update.
Share: From now on, Web Clipper isn’t just about saving information, it’s also about sharing it. Any clip can be turned into a personal URL that you can share with others, including non-Evernote users.
Markup: The popular screenshot annotation tool Skitch is now pretty much integrated into Web Clipper 6. So you can immediately clip the section of the page that is currently visible and then annotate it with markup tools like highlighter, pixelator, stamp, text, arrow, marker and crop.
Reminders: Clip a page and set an alarm to remind you to use that page later, whether it’s for a project deadline or something else.
Bookmarks: Save a page by creating a bookmark and adding a note from that URL.
Simplified: Based on the Clearly app, this will strip down all the unnecessary elements from an article and reformat it for a better reading experience.
Evernote Web Clipper 6 is free to download from the Chrome Web Store. If you aren’t using it already, Evernote is what you should use to remember everything. Also, if you’re looking for more Evernote tips, make sure to check out our always-useful Evernote manual.
