Let’s say you’re preparing for a big presentation. Or working on competitive research for a new product.

You’re online, searching the internet for sources and stats. But here’s my question for you:

As you find information on various websites, how do you organize your research?

Maybe you’ve tried:

  • Links in a word document
  • Keeping dozens of websites open in their own tabs
  • Searching your Chrome history three days later to relocate a source

If you’ve done any of those things, you’ll love Gmail Web Clipper, our newest free productivity extension for Chrome.

Using it, you can organize your entire project, simply and efficiently—directly within Gmail.

No need for Word docs full of links. And no need for a third-party note application to keep everything organized.
