Simple Notepad is a Chrome Extension that allows you to create notes as you browse the web. It is a very simple notepad for Chrome with sync functionality. It helps you to synchronize your notes automatically or manually. If you have Chrome installed across your multiple machines in which you login with same id, then Simple Notepad will sync notes across all of them. It allows you to create numerous synced notes across Google Chrome. Not only that, it enables you to choose between classic Simple Notepad layout or Opera Note style layout.
The best part about Simple Notepad is that it remembers the session of writing; keeps the position of the cursor and the selection unchanged when you aren’t working on it. That helps to remind you what exactly you were doing in the previous session. It allows you to create new notes and delete the same as well, just with a single click.

I found Simple Notepad chrome Extension as a convenient notepad to write text while browsing your web. But at the same time I found it very confusing when I was copying multiple notes from the same page. I had a problem with the link connectivity as well, I had to type or copy paste the entire link in the browser. The synchronization time delays my activities as I have to wait for minimum 10 minutes and at the same time I also found manual sync time taking. It is a simple Chrome extension and I won’t mind having it in my browser.
