Write Space: Distraction-Free Browser Based Text Editor [Chrome]

Ads by Google

I have used numerous online note taking  and text editing apps but I prefer something that is simple to use and stores notes locally. Therefore while browsing the web I use Notepad to take down notes. Now, thanks to Write Space, I do not have to leave the browser to take notes and save them locally.

Write Space is a browser based text editor for Google Chrome that I have found to be very helpful. If you use Chrome and want a note taking app to work within the browser, then Write Space is the perfect tool for you. After you install the app, you will be able to view its icon in the default New Tab interface of Chrome i.e. when you click on the New Tab “˜+’ button. Click on the icon and a note-taking interface will be opened that offers a simple background with white text.

You can put Chrome in full screen and start writing on Write Space completely distraction-free – typing and pasting text is supported. At the bottom of the writing space you will find the total word count, total number of lines, and total number of characters (including spaces).

While you note things down in Write Space, they are automatically saved locally. Things are opened exactly how you left them each time you open the app, even if you are offline.
