Bookmarklet for Brave, please (really, all browsers)

Idea

Hey, y'all. I'd prefer to just sling the current page into Evernote quickly and without a browser extension/applet that sniffs all my traffic and keystrokes. Which is one of the reasons I use Brave.

I'm a paying Evernote user.

Thanks.

Also using Brave and clipping pages using the Evernote clipper add-in.  I don't see why you'd trust a bookmarklet produced by the company that already says it doesn't track your use of the clipper... (which needs to see which page you're on so it can copy some or all of the content...)

You could always just copy and paste...

It is my understanding that a browser extension/plug-in basically can see all of your traffic and everything you do in the browser all the time, regardless of which  site you're accessing, while a bookmarklet is passive and only does something when you click it.

So, yes, I want a bookmarklet.

And, yes, copy-paste is what I do now. ctrl-T to open a new tab, click on the address bar, type in "ever" TAB, W A I T for Evernote to load, click on "new note", click on the tab containing the original link I want to store, click on the address bar to select the url, hit ctrl-c to copy, click on the tab containing Evernote, click in the note text area, hit ctrl-V to paste, click on the note title area, either type in a title manually or click back to the tab containing the original page I wanted to save (and click-drag ctrl-c to copy the headline, click back to the evernote tab, click in the title area, hit ctrl-v).

I'd prefer a bookmarklet.

After installing official browser extension I feel that my browser works slower, so yeah - I want bookmarklet too. Usually I copy/paste.

You think your browsing activity is being transferred to EN servers at all times?  Don't know that I've seen a statement from EN as to what Clipper is doing when not selected, or logged in for that matter.  Are there other extensions with which we should be concerned?  Just wondering.

Since the new, improved Evernote (which is a lot slower), I'm not 100% sure the user is #1 in Evernote's view. I feel like the newimproved web UI client is doing way too much, and I don't see, with that philosophy, why a browser extension wouldn't also (attempt to) do too much. In Evernote's case, I'm not concerned with privacy so much as I am performance and reliability. Since Brave blocks ads, if Evernote wants to sniff my traffic and sell my surfing habits to advertisers (the user not being the most important figure, in Evernote's view), I don't care.

I'd be suspicious of EVERY browser extension, and extend trust to only a few.  (In fact, now that I think of it, it's really high time for me to uninstall a few extensions (from Chrome, not Brave) that I really don't use any more.)

Okay, not sure I have the same concern with the Clipper, but I could be wrong.  OTOH, I use a VPN with a built in ad/tracker blocker.  And Brave.
