Technology has evolved so extensively and you can see the difference by checking out different activities that you were used to doing about 3-4 years ago compared to how you do them today. Do you even remember when was the last time you’ve used a pen and sheet of paper to take down notes from the Internet or to write down your ideas? Do you ever write down web page URL’s on a sheet of paper anymore like the old days when you used to tell people about websites and write the full link to share with them?  I don’t even know when I had used a notebook or paper to take down ideas. That’s the power of technology which is evolving day by day.

When it comes to browsing the Internet through Google Chrome, there are plenty of note taking extensions available on web store to ease the pressure of clipping and remembering snippets of information not just bookmarking pages.
