Free Chrome Extension Simplifies Web-Based Research

When you're researching a topic on the web, you're constantly coming across interesting little snippets of text or images that you need to collect and collate in one convenient place.  Most people do this by flipping between a word processor and a web browser, copying items of interest.  The process works, but can be slow.

So here's a neat idea.  Browser Clipboard is a free extension for users of the Chrome web browser, which you can get from https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/browser%20clipboard.

Once it's installed, drag selected text to the clipboard, or right-click content from a web page and choose Copy To Browser Clipboard.  You can then drag stored items from the browser clipboard onto any web page.  For example, a web-based note app such as Evernote, or your own blog.

Be aware that the clipboard is stored only in your browser, and is deleted when you close your browser.  So make sure that you copy those items that you want to keep before you close Chrome.
