Take Notes Inside of Firefox

Taking Notes in Firefox

If you do a lot of work online, being able to take notes as you work is definitely a good thing.  Rather than scribbling on random sheets of paper or bouncing between Firefox and a notepad-like program, keep it all in Firefox with QuickFox Notes. This multi-tab note taking extension is awesome.

Some of the features include:

  • Simple & Multi tab
  • Auto save notes
  • Check spelling
  • Changeable font size
  • Changeable background color
  • Easy search tool
  • Various keyboard shortcuts

Another nice feature is that it saves your notes in the bookmark files, so your notes will always be in sync, if you have installed one of the bookmark syncing add-ons like Xmarks or Mozilla Weave. If you are in need of a handy note taking application from within Firefox, give QuickFox Notes a shot.

Really Simple Notepad for Firefox

Need to jot something down real quick before you forget, and don’t want to be bothered launching another web site or program to do it?  The Really Simple Notepad bookmarklet is just what the forgetful web user needs.

Just drag and drop this link to your bookmarks toolbar:

Now when you need it, hit the bookmarklet link and up will come a popup window where you can type. The fun doesn’t stop there though. If you want to save what you have put in, just hit Ctrl+S to bring up the “Save As” menu. Make sure you set it to save as a text file and you have a simple backup of what you just wrote.

Thanks goes out to 7 is 7 for providing this hidden browser treasure.
