Today, Evernote’s Firefox Add-on becomes more powerful, versatile and easier to use than ever. If you already have the Add-on you can go to Tools> Add-ons> Extensions> Find Updates. Firefox will download the latest version.
If you haven’t installed the Evernote Mozilla Add-on yet you can download it from the Mozilla site.
New options and customizations
You now have the ability to customize many of the Evernote Add-on’s features by selecting Add-ons from the tools menu and clicking on the Preferences button for the Evernote extension.
One of the settings allows those with Evernote installed on their desktops to choose whether to have web clips go the desktop version or to Evernote Web, which opens a confirmation popup in the browser. The browser popup is nice if you like to do some quick, light organization of your web clips (add a tag, choose a notebook) and then continue browsing. If you prefer to go in and edit your clips, then sending to the desktop is your best bet.
One thing to keep in mind, if you have Evernote installed on your desktop and you choose the Evernote Web option, Evernote desktop will need to sync for your new notes to appear immediately.
The browser popup also gets a new search feature, which lets you search through all of your notes right inside the popup. Access the search option by clicking on the green tab bottom along the bottom of the popup. This is great for quickly finding that note you’ve been looking for without going to Evernote Web or Evernote on your desktop.
As you type into the search bar, it auto-suggests tags, notebooks and saved searches that you have in your account, making it easier and faster to get to the notes you want. Of course, you can always ignore that suggestions and type in any search you like. It’s up to you.
