While browsing or researching for any topic, people usually prefer to take notes, jot down ideas and save links of websites. By doing so, they can make sure they don’t forget from where they got the ideas or information. Note taking can be a time consuming process if you are using a pen and paper. But for Chrome users its not. There are tons of good note taking applications available in Chrome Web Store which can help users take notes right inside Google Chrome.
Users can even take notes in Windows but what if you want to access it from another PC? For example, if you researched for your project at home and now you are at your friend’s place to finalize it, think how much trouble it would be to look for all the material.
Anyways, we have gathered a list of few which help users manage tasks and take notes in Google Chrome. Check them out below and use the one which suits your needs best.
