One of the cool things about Chrome is its huge repository of extensions that make your work life easy. Take for instance DashNotes. This handy Chrome extension from RocketFuse lets you take notes while you’re browsing and save them, or rather pin them to a new tab in your Chrome browser, which of course makes it mighty nice when you want to quickly access it later. If fact, the extension even lets you save HTML videos from YouTube or other networks and access them later at your convenience. Let’s see how DashNotes works.
DashNotes is a Pretty Pinboard for Chrome
Just as with any Chrome extension, head over to the Chrome Web Store, download DashNotes and install it. To start using DashNotes, just carry on browsing in the new DashNotes tab and when you find an article, text, links or images you want to note down, just right click on an empty space or select the text and right-click to see the Add to DashNotes option. Everything that you save on DashNotes is only saved on your computer and not in the cloud. If you want to add a video to your new DashNotes tab page, right-click on the video and select Add video to DashNotes. Remember, only HTML videos can be right-clicked and added to Dash Notes.
All your notes, links to pages, images and videos will get neatly pinned to your new tab page, so the next time you open a new tab, you will find all your little bits of notes neatly pinned up on the dashboard. As far as videos are concerned, you can play them right within your pinboard and don’t have to navigate away from the screen. You can also add your own notes and reminders by hitting the + icon at the top right corner of your screen. Deleting is just as easy. Just hit the x button at the corner of your pins to delete them.
DashNotes is a simple concept that is beautifully executed. It has attractive background scenes that alternate every time you open a new tab. It is light and it pins your notes and extras neatly making it so much more intuitive to put together ideas when you are working on a project.
