From the mind-blowing to the mundane, our daily web routine is packed with moments of inspiration and learning. In the span of a few minutes, we may discover a new design direction, plan our next vacation and make progress on research. Each of these activities is important and needs to be captured, but sometimes simply saving isn’t enough. You may want to add your own thoughts to the saved pages or share your findings with friends.
That thinking led us to completely redesign our popular Evernote Web Clipper for Chrome. It’s all new, super powerful and amazingly simple. Let’s take a look.

The All New Evernote Web Clipper 6 for Chrome
The new Web Clipper combines the classic features you’re used to with new capabilities from across our family of apps, all wrapped in a sleek, new look and feel.
The Big Redesign
The first thing you’ll notice is the Web Clipper’s new look. When you click on the elephant icon, the Clipper panel slides in from the right, exposing all the features from top to bottom. Some sections, like tags and notebooks, pop out to let you conveniently choose what you need.
New Ways to Clip
Let’s take a look at both the familiar and the new clipping options.
- Article: Clips the body content of the page, including images, links and styles
- Selection: Clips the text and images that you highlight
- Bookmark (NEW): Creates a note containing a snippet of the page and the URL
- Simplified (NEW): We brought in features from our Clearly extension to strip the page of all distractions for easy reading and clean clipping
Markup and Screenshots
We’re bringing features from our Skitch app right into the Web Clipper to let you overlay shapes, arrows and text on top of the page you’re viewing. Choose from the available markup tools to point out something interesting or to give design feedback to a coworker. When you’re finished, you can either save or share your work. If you change your mind, hit ESC and you’ll return to the original page.
One important note: when you start using a Markup tool, the Web Clipper takes a screenshot of the visible screen area only. It doesn’t capture the entire page.
The Web Clipper has always been great at saving the things you find interesting. Now, it lets you share them as well. Anything you do, from clipping to markup, can be shared with friends and colleagues over email, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Smart and Simple
We’ve added a ton of new capabilities in this new version, but we kept the Clipper as quick and smart as ever. If all you want to do is clip the page, simply click the icon and then click Save. The content will be saved to Evernote and our Smart Filing feature will make sure that the page is organized within your account just the way you like it.
Add a Reminder
Frequently, we clip things just to have them, not because we’re looking to take any specific action. Other times, those clips are directly related to upcoming projects or meetings. In addition to organizing your clips, you can add a Reminder to make sure nothing falls through the cracks. To add a Reminder to a clip, click on the alarm clock icon in the popup that appears after you finish clipping something.
More to Come
Big redesigns always come with big opportunities for expansion. We’ve spent the past several months building the Web Clipper 6 and there’s still a lot more we plan on doing. Get it today and let us know what you think.
