Evernote adds "Related Results" to its Chrome app

Evernote has become a prevalent part of the lives of many of us. It works on the web, with browser extensions and across mobile platforms. Think of something you need to add to your shopping list? Add it on your computer and when your are at the store it will be there on your smartphone. Now the company has updated its popular Evernote Web Clipper extension for the Chrome web browser.

The new update brings a unique feature -- a related results option that will appear next to search results. What does this mean? Andrew Sinkov of Evernote explained it this way -- "Now, Evernote users will start benefiting from all the smarts built into search engines to find memories and notes stored in their Evernote accounts."

If you already have the Evernote Web Clipper installed in Chrome then you will notice a new option the next time you click on the extension icon to sign in (provided you have restarted Chrome since the update launched). It is simply a check box that says "Show Related Results when you search the web".

Once enabled you can head to Google or Bing or whatever your choice is and try doing a search. If your search involves something that is stored in one of your Evernote notebooks then a message will appear to the right of the search results.

If you haven't used Web Clipper then let me explain a bit more. The extension allows you to save images of the web pages you visit.

Once on a site that you want to save for future reference you click on the icon in the menu bar at the top right of Chrome and choose from several options -- shrink selection, expand selection, move selection and clip article. This allows you to get as much or as little of the page as you want.

Evernote is free and cross-platform compatible. There is also a pro version in case you find yourself needing more space or features.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between name.com domains and files for instance.

    @Ashwin–Thankful you delighted my comment; who knows how many “gamers” would have disagreed!

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
