Today, we have some great news. Evernote Clearly, our browser extension that creates a beautiful online reading experience for blogs and articles, is now available for Firefox.

Install Evernote Clearly now »

How it works

When you come to a site that you’d like to read, click the Clearly lamp icon in your browser bar. The page is transformed—all distractions are removed, leaving only the content you want to read. Then, once you’re done, click on Clearly again and you’re back on the regular article.

Imagine getting through an article without clicking on a bunch of links before reaching the end. Now you can, with Clearly.

Save it to Evernote
If you don’t have time to finish the page you’re reading, click on the Evernote icon in the Clearly sidebar to save it into Evernote. In Preferences, you can also set a tag that will be associated with the pages you clip.

Multi-page clips
If you click Clearly on an article that’s broken up across multiple pages, Clearly will put everything into a single, long page.

Themes
Clearly arrives with three attractive built-in themes: Newsprint, Notable and Nightowl. If you’re a fan of customization, you can make your own by going into the Preferences.

Enjoy!

By removing distractions, Clearly makes reading online truly pleasurable. Enjoy.

    That’s great! I’m really enjoying Clearly in Chrome. But when I go to install it in Firefox it says that it requires Firefox 10. When I go to the Firefox download site it says that the current version is 9.0. What’s wrong with this picture?

  • Evan Gore

    The folks at Clearly should be hearing from the lawyers at Pixar pretty soon. I’m looking forward to the app though..

  • Brad

    OMG … I didn’t get past the first two sentences before i installed this. Thank you!

  • Kaos

    Finally, I’ve been waiting patiently for this to come to Firefox. So far it’s working like a charm. Thanks for all the hard work guys.

  • Ignacio

    Please make this available for Opera Browser! =)

  • Drag0nR3b0rn

    Great to see this finally available for Firefox as well. It’s working great – almost replacing two different services for me!

    Now if I might add a couple suggestions – so that clearly would be able to completely replace both Instapaper and Readability for me:
    1) It’d be great if I could import the links I’ve saved to Instapaper into Evernote – in the same, content only, format as results from Clearly.

    2) Please allow me to choose the notebook to which Clearly saves pages.

    3) It’d be awesome to be able to use Readability’s system for supporting authors with Clearly, is this possible?

    Keep the great work, I can’t imagine myself not using it anymore =)

  • Paul B.

    Opera here too. Maybe this the the backdoor for Evernote to finally support opera? Meantime, go to tastefulwords.com and use Readable, which Clearly is built on.

  • Arc

    Awesome stuff! Any chance you could make it restartless? It doesn’t look like something that depends on a component that would fail without a restart.

  • kevindlove

    Need to see if this works on Kindle Fire once Santa makes good on his promise to give me a Fire tomorrow ;-)

  • Dave

    Nice job =)

    I’ve asked for a few years now but is there any way to get a “remember last position” option (at the very least on the mobile versions of Evernote)? Running a 15 page article through Clearly works flawlessly but when reading it in evernote and closing it to do something else (or when you get to the front of the line) it loses your place…. difficult and frustrating.

    If you could get this implemented I could ditch Instapaper.

    Thanks!

  • Matt

    Will you guys make it available for safari? If so, that would be awesome!

  • Bryan

    Pls make it support for safari ! Thks

  • Kaixi

    Evernote Clearly is very CPU intensive. It uses 10% of cpu even when Firefox is idle.

  • Cecily T

    Just installed it…seems great on FF9, but I’m looking for a way to tag the notes like I do with the web clipper within clearly. Can I do that?

  • Nicol

    Is this available for Opera Browser?

  • rdsu

    I also would like to have it on Opera browser…

    Hope you can make it soon… ;)

    Regards

  • syla

    Nice extension, but why not for the Opera browser? same story with clipper… :-((

  • Thomas Zacchi

    This is such a great extension. I run an intoto online marketing company and the number of webpages I read have just been made a lot more agreeable.

  • Thomas Zacchi

    Oh, would love support for Safari please.

  • werner stickler

    Very nice!

    One thing: pls forward the Clippings to the FF-Evernote-Addon.
    Then its possible to add tags, choose the notebook, clip all or just the url.

  • Jabari Adisa

    Are there any predictions for when you’ll get your extension working under Safari 5.1+ again?

    Thanks.

      I believe Evernote bought Readable. :O http://techcrunch.com/2012/01/24/evernote-bought-four-companies-last-year-and-almost-nobody-knew-about-it/

      With your features you are suggesting above, I would also propose them to add to Clearly. It would totally replace Evernote Web Clipper.

  • Carley Knobloch

    This is a fabulous extension that I’m using all the time (and not just cause that’s ME in the example article!). Great work.

  • DAW

    Awesome! I am a shameless “browser nomad” who constantly switches his primary browser back and forth between Chrome and FF (FF is winning at the moment). While using FF, I really missed this extension so I Googled it and voila.. it was ready!

    Thanks so much Evernote!

    -D.

  • Ravindran

    Nice add-on. Please make it available for Opera also.

    Of course, readable bookmarklet works well in Opera browser. However, clearly is more finesse.

    • Startsev

      Use normal browser – Chrome/Firefox …

  • Keith

    Evernote folks: Clearly is BRILLIANT! Another great tool – my Evernote crush grows bigger everyday, even after 5 years of using evernote.

    One suggestion: Add a context menu item to display a story in clearly. When using an aggregator, I click twice: once to open the story, another to view in Clearly. One step would make this sweet.

    Thanks again for another great tool.

  • Dmitry

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clearly/ – do not exist

  • Startsev

    Today, the application is not found. What happened ?

  • Norman

    Clearly leaves me a bit suspicious. This plugin appears to be doing “something” constantly–using CPU–even while your browser sits idle. Try it, look at you CPU with *Clearly*, then disable and see if your CPU don’t get some rest.

  • Bob Stocking

    The link no longer works … is there an issue between Evernote and Mozilla?

    • Kasey Fleisher Hickey

      It should be back up and running shortly!

  • Jason

    Did it get pulled from the Mozilla Add-On site?

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clearly/

    When can we expect it to come back? Best Plugin ever.

    • Kasey Fleisher Hickey

      It will be back up shortly!

  • Tom Err

    Just wanted to suggest that since Clearly works so wonderfully, maybe it’s time to add a feature to have it on constantly!
    Sometimes I’d like to browse only in Clearly mode and don’t want to re-click it everytime.
    I would suggest implemanting such a feature, or even develope a clutter free web-browser! That would be truly innovative!

  • Arturo Linares

    +1 for the opera extension

  • Gian

    Please, make this available for Opera Browser
