Some things just go together. Peanut butter and jelly. Time and tide. Abbott and Costello. Web Clipper and Evernote.
Using Web Clipper and Evernote together is sublime. Here’s why:
1) It’s kinda like cheating – If I think an article or piece of inspiration will come in handy one day, Web Clipper lets me make it mine. I don’t need to think about where it is because I know it’s in Evernote.
2) Bookmarks suck – Bookmarks don’t sync to mobile and bookmarking every good gif I’ve found would break my browser.
3) Sometimes you need to share – I don’t even like cats, but my friend sure would love this listicle of cat gifs. Bam. Sent. Right from Web Clipper.
4) It’s permanent and it’s yours – Even the best content rots on the internet. In Evernote, your pages will never be unhosted.
5) It keeps me on point – I highlight important sections with Web Clipper so that I can remember why I clipped in the first place.
6) Goodbye, copy + paste – I’ll never need to copy and paste from the web into a note again.
7) It cleans pages up – Web Clipper strips out the ads and social tools, leaving me with just the content I want. This works especially well when clipping from Gmail, Amazon, YouTube, and LinkedIn.
8) It’s smart – The Web Clipper learns which notebook I want to save specific pages to. It sends recipes to ‘Cooking’ and travel confirmations into ‘Travel’.
9) It makes Google better – By turning on a setting, my own personal Evernote results show up alongside Google’s. It’s a good reminder of what I’ve clipped.
10) I can clip on mobile – Web clipping is now possible on Evernote for iOS and Android. Now I can clip where I do my most meaningful browsing: the bathroom. I mean… mobile. Yeah, mobile.
I use a lot of great extensions, but If I were to use only one, it’d be Web Clipper. I’d go so far as to say that if someone is using Evernote but not Web Clipper, they’re not even really using Evernote yet. Get it, fall in love with it, and thank me later.
