(Archived) Lack of information about web clipper minimum requirements


Recommended Posts

If the web clipper had to be rewritten for Safari 5.1, there are two (kind of) usability or information design issues:

1. a minimum requirement for Safari version 5.1 needs to be clear before any download, let alone permitting it to be installed (and failing) on Safari < 5.1

2. there are several posts about it failing on Safari 5.0.6, but with the assertion that these users should upgrade, yet Safari 5.1 won't install on OS X 10.5.8, which many users still have, and - worse - the previous version of the web clipper that *did* work on older Safari is no longer available.

I suggest:

1. make it clear on the download link that Safari 5.1 is required, and prevent installation if attempted;

2. make the previous version available for those with older versions of Safari.

These two points are fairly common for other installs, so I'm a little disappointed that Evernote doesn't adopt the same practice - especially for what is such a popular and otherwise excellent service.

Update: strangely, I just used the 'remember' link at the bottom left of this forum post to 'web clip' the page to evernote?? It's unformatted (no CSS) but has been added - is this the same functionality?
