When surfing the Web, it’s all too common for us to find useful bits and pieces of information that we want to save and possibly share. We end up bookmarking tons of websites and forget about many of them — even if we have our bookmarks meticulously organized! With Clipboard, you can easily “clip” the key portions of the websites you visit including text, images and even videos. Instead of bookmarking or emailing entire pages, you can clip only the pieces you would like to save, email, or post to your webpage or blog. With a free Clipboard account, you can save clips to your own searchable library as well as create a ClipCast slideshow consisting of the Web clippings you’d like to compile and share.
First you’ll need to install the Clipboard browser extension for Firefox or Chrome: located here. Once you follow the installation instructions, the Clipboard button will show up in your Web browser’s toolbar.
When you click on the Clipboard button you will enter “clip mode” and instructions to clip will appear in your toolbar. You can email and print your clips from your toolbar; however you will need to set up a free Clipboard account in order to save your clips, publish to a blog or webpage, or create a ClipCast. Check out the Clipboard How-to-clip page for further instructions and helpful information.
