The Evernote Web Clipper is amazing at helping your save the things you see online. But that’s not all it’s good for. Recently, our Web Clipper for Chrome got smarter than ever with a completely new Related Results feature that will discover useful content in your Evernote account at exactly the right time. In addition to this feature, we’ve added a bunch of new capabilities you’ll want to check out.
The new Related Results
For many of us, search engines are at the core of our Internet use. They’re the go-to resource for any and all questions we have. And thanks to years of development, search engines are uncanny in their ability to understand what you’re looking for and show you the correct result. Now, Evernote users will start benefiting from all the smarts built into search engines to find memories and notes stored in their Evernote accounts.
When you enable Related Results in the Chrome Web Clipper, either at login or in the extension options, you’ll now see some interesting things pop up alongside your search results in Google, Yahoo!, Bing and other search engines.
Let’s say you type “hiking” into Google. Google will provide you with a set of search results. Meanwhile, Evernote will look at the entire page and feed it into our Related Notes algorithm, then present you with three notes from your Evernote account that are most related to the search results. This gives you a great, unified experience for finding what you need both across the Web and inside of Evernote.
Great for Business
If you have an Evernote Business account, then not only will you see Related Results from your account, but also from your coworkers’ Business notebooks that you have joined or that are in the Business Library.
Open in Evernote on your Desktop
We’ve also made opening notes that show up in the Related Notes section a great experience. In the extension options, choose to open notes in the desktop client. When you click on a note, Evernote desktop will open up with that note in view.
The first time you do this, a popup will appear asking you to confirm that you wish to open an application. Check the checkbox in the popup to make sure that the message doesn’t appear every time.
We’ve also made the Web Clipper more powerful by broadening the type of content that you can save, along with lots of other behind-the-scenes improvements. If you have the Web Clipper for Chrome installed, the update will happen automatically. Otherwise, go to the Chrome Gallery to install it.
