Millions of users love using the Web Clipper for Chrome to collect the web because it’s incredibly fast and simple. Today’s updates to the Web Clipper (version 6.2) make the experience of saving online content even more streamlined.

We’ve completely redesigned the Web Clipper to let you be more efficient at each step. Let’s take a look.

Thoughtful Layout

The footprint of the Web Clipper has been reduced to display only the most important functions for any given moment. The new, more compact design is also a better fit for any screen size, so you can view more of your content while clipping.


Distraction-free clipping
The save button is more prominent in the Clipper’s new design, and it’s also been mapped to the enter/return key so you can clip without even clicking. This efficient layout and function lets you quickly clip what you want and get right back to what you were doing.


Straightforward annotation
Annotation tools are hidden from view until you take a screenshot. Once you’ve selected the area you want to mark up with the crosshairs, they pop to the forefront.Untitled-2-1

Do more with your clip
Once you’ve finished clipping, you will see a panel that allows you to set a reminder on the note you just created. This lets you notify yourself and others who have access to the note to follow up and revisit the clip later. It’s a great way to remember plane and hotel reservations, gifts for birthdays, and other time-sensitive information.


You can also share your clip with a friend or colleague from this screen.

Options for Advanced Clippers

You don’t have to be a pro at using the Web Clipper to appreciate these updates, but in 6.2 we’ve added some much-requested features that avid clippers will love:

Improved notebook selection
Find notebooks and tags faster in the new drop down menu, which filters to display possible options as you start typing each word.

When you decide to clip an article, full page, or simplified article, the Highlighter is automatically selected by default so you can mark up pages without missing a beat.

Default behaviors
No matter your preferred workflow, the new Web Clipper has a range of options to make clipping web pages as rich or as light as you want. You can hide or reveal related notes to focus in on your clipped content, or, for an even lighter experience, you can hide the post-clip panel entirely by selecting ‘Automatically close Clipper’ in the After Clip section.
