What is it?
One of the greatest features of Evernote is the web clipper. The web clipper allows you to save content from the web to your notebooks. It is an extension for your web browser. It is not a separate application, so you do not have to worry about installing an additional application. You use this feature right inside the browser that you already use.
Browsers you can use
- Internet Explorer
All of the above browsers are supported on both Windows and Mac computers except Internet Explorer.
Why is this a benefit?
- One place to go for all saved information - No more searching around for which browser you bookmarked the page, what application you copied and pasted the content or where in your 8,542 pictures you took a screenshot
- Access content no matter what device you are using
- Save different types of content, from a simple web page to a PDF attachments
