Are you tired of saving articles to your browser’s notebook, only to get annoyed by ads and other elements of a page that prevent you from easily reading the content you were wanting to in the first place? Well, here’s the good news, Evernote recently released an extension named Clearly for Firefox.
The digital notebook company had originally released the extension on Google Chrome first, which is like Safari’s Reader function. When Clearly is enabled, it will remove ads and other distracting and redundant content from a page for you to read only the articles, not the other stuff around like calls-to-actions, promotions, etc.
If you are the type that enjoys downloading PDFs to read at a later time, it can also be very helpful in this area. Clearly is determined to help improve users’ ability to read the content they want without wasting time avoiding unwanted ads and other junk.
Additionally, because it is an extension from Evernote, it also provides other features, such as coping articles to your Evernote account. You have three reading formats, various font sizes and a night view.
In order to access Clearly, you will navigate to the menu in Firefox, select Tools and then go to Clearly. Alternatively, you can get there by using the extension’s button located in the Firefox toolbar.
While using the Clearly extension for clipping an article of your choice to your Evernote account, it will be sending over a read-only version to the default notebook. What this means is that you will not have to continue to strip the clutter from clippings that you have saved to your Evernote account, or your notebook.
But, as mentioned above, in order to use the Clearly read-only clipping extension, you will need to register for a free Evernote account.
