When you only need to refer to a part of a web site, a clipping tool allows you to "clip" out and save just those parts: text, photos, etc. They then create a single web page or notebook-type page with all your "clippings" on it. These make it easy to refer back to notes you've taken from web pages!

  • Webklipper   Clip pages and make notes using highlighting and sticky notes. Can also share with others.
  • Zoho Notebook   Can add text, images, video, html, files, links, etc. Notebook pages are sharable.
