Those who use Google Chrome and Evernote listen up for a minute because the the browser and digital brain service play very nicely together. First, for those unaware there is a nice Evernote Web Clipper extension available for Chrome. Of course that has been around for a little while now and many Evernote users likely already know about that tool.
But moving on, there is also a good way for Google Chrome users to search their Evernote account from the address bar. You just need to do a quick setup before you begin. To get started right click in the Chrome address bar and select “Edit Search Engines.” After that click the little “+” sign in the bottom left hand corner. Once you have done that just set up the search with the following parameters.
- Name: Evernote
- Keyword: Evernote.com
- URL: http://www.evernote.com/search?q=%s
After you have those fields entered, just click to save. That said, Evernote also has nice desktop versions of their software available for both Mac and PC’s which includes the ability to search. Personally I run the desktop software, but am in the browser more often than not so this little trick just seems to work better with my current flow.
