AnnoPad for Chrome – annotate webpages like a pro [Freeware]


Keeping track of webpages when doing factual research can be a tricky task, and although you can use bookmarking and clipping apps, there’s none quite as straightforward as one called AnnoPad for Chrome.

AnnoPad focuses on letting you bookmark webpages and adding notes along with them, making it a perfect tool for citing references from the web. While bookmarking tools give you lots of options to save and organize URLs, this Chrome extension makes it simpler by letting you take notes along with a webpage’s link, just like you would a notepad.


The handy extension is accessed from the top right corner of the browser, and you can work directly in its pop-up window interface. Just click on the icon when you’re in the webpage you want to save and click on New.

AnnoPad automatically copies the URL of the current page and provides a text field for you to add your notes. You don’t have to bother hitting a Save button, because it does that automatically.

When you close the notepad section, you’ll see the button with a number indicating how many links you’ve saved. That’s it — no fancy tricks, good old note-taking with URLs.
