Computer users have several choices when they need to take notes. They can write the notes down on paper, try to remember them, use a text editor, use a specialized note taking software, use a gadget that sits on the computer desktop, post the note in an email, text field or use a web browser add-on.
That’s lots of choices which all vary in how convenient, accessible and speedy they are. Chromepad is an interesting extension for the Google Chrome web browser that can be used to take notes directly in the browser.
The extension places an icon in the Google Chrome address toolbar that, when clicked, will open a text form that can be used to enter notes.
The extension supports text notes; no BBcode, no HTML or any other formatting options. That’s a limitation as it would be more comfortable if there would be an option to format the text so that links become clickable or important text can be emphasized.
Text can either be copied and pasted into the text form or entered manually by the user. The text is saved by the extension so that it is available in future browsing sessions.
Chromepad can be helpful for users who regularly work with the Google browser. The extension does have a few limitations at the moment. This are synchronizing notes, exporting notes into a text document, tabs or another form of dividing notes and the already mentioned formatting options.
