Do you find it difficult to save stuff you find online for accessing or looking into its details later? Maybe you found a good piece of content and you want to save and share just a part of it? Try Nimbus Web Clipper. Highly reminiscent of Evernote Web Clipper sans its annotation elements, this Chrome extension from the developers of Nimbus Screen Capture lets you save any content from a webpage to an online account, allowing you to access it from another PC or mobile device, anywhere you want. You can capture a full page, images, full article or any custom snippet of your choice.
Setting up Nimbus Web Clipper is pretty easy; once you install the Chrome extension (via the link provided at the end of this article), you can create a new Nimbus account for automatically synchronizing all your clips to the cloud. The sign up process comprises of simply specifying your email address and choosing a password.
Now that you’ve got it all set up, you’ll still need to learn how to clip your content. Fortunately, this process is quite straightforward too; when you find something you want to clip, just click the extension’s button besides the URL bar. A horizontal bar pops up at the bottom, letting you choose the content type to bookmark. For instance, if you want to clip a snippet, click the section of the page you want to save. The blue selection box will wrap the content, and you can click Save followed by giving it a name and optionally, a tag and description to store it to your account.
Nimbus also lets you store all the images in a page in one go. To do that, click Images, followed by making your image selection. It displays all the images from a page that you’re able to save.
Once you’re done saving your desired web clip, you can clip more on that page or another, keep browsing the internet for saving more content, or go to your Nimbus dashboard. Everything you’ve ever clipped using the extension can be found in your Nimbus account. From there, you can view all your clips, manage tags, move unwanted clips to trash, and create new notes for more content.
All in all, Nimbus Web Clipper reminded me of its Evernote counterpart every step of the way. Although, Evernote’s offering is much more feature-laden, Nimbus also offers handy web clipping options, and is more suited towards those who don’t need the advanced features of Evernote.
