Our Web Clipper allows you to save all the great pages and content you find online with a single click. Today, we have a big update to our Safari Web Clipper that makes this process easier and smarter than ever. Here’s what we’ve added.
Get the Safari Web Clipper »
If you already have the Web Clipper installed, then it will automatically update to the new version.
I have a bunch of sites that I visit all the time, from Uncrate to Smitten Kitchen to the Onion. When I see something that I want to save, I’ll clip it and organize it using notebooks and tags. This update adds Smart Filing, which automatically suggests destination notebooks and tags for your Web Clips. Of course, if you disagree with the suggestions, you can easily change them. This lets you keep browsing, rather than thinking about how your Web Clips should be organized every time.
Your Evernote account is getting smarter and smarter. Today’s update introduces Related Notes to the Safari Web Clipping experience. Whenever you clip something, Evernote searches for notes that are somehow related to the item you’re clipping, based on a variety of attributes. You’ll see three Related Notes displayed right in the clipper popup immediately after you’ve captured something from the Web. Related Notes are a great way to find connections and rediscover all the things you have in Evernote.
The Web Clipper detects the body of the pages you’re clipping so that you don’t have to worry about highlighting and selecting content. We’ve adding a new feature that lets you use your keyboard’s arrow keys to select more or less of the page. No mouse required.
Clip into Shared Notebooks
Working with friends, colleagues and classmates is an important part of the Evernote story. Now, you can use the Safari Web Clipper to help you with group projects by clipping directly into Shared Notebooks. You’ll find the Shared Notebooks listing in the clipping popup’s notebook selection dropdown menu.
Simultaneous Search brings Evernote results into your Web search. After turning it on, searching in Google, Yahoo, Bing, and others will also search inside your Evernote account for matching notes. You’ll be surprised by how often you find the answers you’re looking for inside of your account.
In addition to all these great new features, we also made the Safari Web Clipper faster and more reliable than ever, and added a new options page, which lets you change Clipper settings at any time. Enjoy!
