Evernote has been on a tear lately, revamping all of its applications across the various platforms - iPhone, Android, and Web for example. Today, it's the turn of Evernote's Google Chrome Extension to get an upgrade in functionality.The note-taking app
The Evernote Chrome Extension allows you to clip and save Web pages to your Evernote account, and the update includes a redesign of the extension's interface. This makes it easier to handle the data you typically will want to add to these notes - titles and tags for example.
The improvements to the extension make clipping articles from the Web a lot easier. Now, instead of having to highlight the text of a post you want to save to Evernote, the extension will automatically select the body of the post. From there, you can just "Clip Article" and the information is saved to your Evernote account.
If you do want to save just a portion of a Web page or blog post, you can still highlight the text you want, just as you would have before today's update.
Improved Searching and Browsing
You can also now browse through the notes in your account via the extension, as well as see the notes you've clipped from various domains. If you're on a particular website, you'll be able to easily pull up the notes you've clipped from that site.
And one of the most useful features of the extension - the ability to include your notes as part of searches when you Google something - has now been extended to include Bing and Yahoo searches. In other words, whichever of these three search engines you use, your search results will also include any Evernotes you have saved on the topic.
The newly updated Evernote Chrome Extension is available now from the Chrome Gallery. Evernote says that it does hope to extend these capabilities to other browsers too.
