Evernote is rapidly making efforts to become as pervasive as possible, with everything from its apps to a co-branded stylus and even a MacBook sleeve. The company has now updated its Web Clipper for Safari (Free) extension to get even deeper ingrained into your daily tasks. The plugin, which is also available for Chrome and Opera, brings features of Evernote’s main app, as well as Skitch, directly to your computer’s browser.
By clicking on the elephant head icon that gets added to Safari’s toolbar, you’ll bring up a bar on the right side of the window. Here you get the ability to clip and save single articles, the entire page, or just selected portions of the screen. The biggest update is the “Simplified Article” mode, which is a lot like Safari’s native Reader. Click on it, and all the material around the article will be stripped away, leaving just the text. Once clipped, your article gets saved to Evernote, and is accessible from any device on which you’re running the app.
