Sticky notes are handy as a temporary means to remember information. They are usually plastered around the monitor and computer desk but Note Anywhere for Chrome takes them to the virtual realm. Note Anywhere is a Google Chrome extension that can be used to created, edit and remove sticky notes from websites.

This can be helpful to note down contact information, research links, ideas and anything else that may seem important in regards to the website.

Here is how it works. You visit the website like you always do. The extension adds a small sticky notes icon to the Chrome address bar. A click on that icon adds a new sticky note to the web page.

The note can be moved around with drag and drop. Text is added with a single left-click to activate the note. Date and time are displayed in the footer automatically.

The notes stick on that page even after closing the browser or the tab. When the page is opened anew the note is displayed in the very same location it has been placed in by the user.

A right-click on the extension icon and the selection of options opens a configuration page. Here it is possible to access the notes summary which displays the web pages notes have been placed on and the extension settings with options to change the font and color of the notes.

Note Anywhere is a handy extension for Chrome users who sometimes need to have information at hand when they visit websites.

Update: The sticky notes extension for the Google Chrome web browser is still available at the Chrome web store. You can now place the post it notes anywhere on the screen. This can be useful as a reminder that you need to do something on the site, or if you share the computer with someone else, as a note to them. The style of notes can furthermore be changed, and it is possible to look a summary for all notes.

    Is there something that does this for mobile apps? I’d really like for the ability to put notes on linkedin that I can see when I view the same profile on my mobile. Especially since chrome mobile doesn’t support extensions yet
