The Evernote Web Clipper is the easiest and best way I know to save, organize, and share your web content. Period.

To use the Evernote Web Clipper, you do need to have an Evernote account, so go to and sign up for the free 60 MB storage account. Evernote does have a Plus plan, $35 per year for 1 GB of space, and then they top off at $70 a year for 10 GB of space.

Click on the add to Chrome, the extension will install, and you’ll have a little icon that looks like an elephant’s head on your browser window.

Let’s take a look at what the Evernote Web Clipper extension can do.

First, find a piece of web content you want to save to Evernote. Click on the little icon for the Evernote Web Clipper, a small pop-up window shows up with an array of menu choices. You can save the web content, as a Full Page, Simplified article, Article (which I prefer), Bookmark or Screenshot.  For example, selecting the Article option for a blog post will remove the sidebar and navigation and will only capture the post.
