Quick Note is a free Chrome extension that helps to create notes using context menu. It provides an option in context menu to create a new note or add selection to new note. Thus, you will be able to write and save notes from any webpage. All notes are saved automatically in real-time which makes it more interesting to use. On main interface of this extension, you will find all your notes.
Quick Note not only saves text content, infact it can save images and hyperlinks (only selected image or hyperlink) available in webpage as well. This makes it more handy than many other similar Chrome extensions.
You can also access your notes offline. Apart from this, Quick Note also lets you save notes to cloud using Diigo account. All notes are synced automatically so that you can access them from any PC.
In above screenshot, you could see notes saved by me using this handy note taking extension.
Note: For some webpages, this extension didn’t provide Add selection to notes option even after selecting the text content which was surprising for me. You can try and see if you find the same problem.
