elan19 0 Posted February 25, 2009 Share Posted February 25, 2009 I would love to be able to take notes (in a side bar or perhaps some kind of popup - but this typing is getting saved to a note while I'm doing it) while reading within a browser (I use Firefox). It would be best if I could do this in a way that allows me to continue reading with minimal interruption. Flipping back and forth between Evernote and the browser causes too much interruption to the flow of reading (especially something more than a few hundred words).I've come up with a so-so way to do this already, which I mentioned in reply to a different forum note.I installed the Firefox extension QuickNote. The way I'm using it is to have the widest possible Quicknote sidebar on my Firefox Window. I take notes while I'm reading something long that I feel like taking notes about (I also may jot down ideas to further research, so that I don't get distracted from finishing a long article by the ever present temptation to look up a stray thought).When done, there's a few ways you can choose to get things into evernote.If all you want is your notes, then select the note text and clip it into Evernote.If you want these notes plus the link, then paste the link first into the quicknote sidebar, then clip to Evernote.If you want your notes along side the thing you were reading, then use the printscreen key to capture the entire browser area (this obviously works best if what you're reading fits completely onto the screen).I'm guessing it would not be technically difficult to incorporate some of this functionality into Evernote's Firefox extension, which means users of any platform running Firefox would benefit.
