Behind the scenes, your browser creates an empty HTML page with only one editable element similar to an input box, but without any border. You can only add or remove simple text which means formatting of any kind (bold, italics, underlines, bullets .. etc) is not possible. Spell check will work though if enabled in the browser. You can also make your texts italic or bold.

The one drawback, however, is that if you close the tab, you’ll lose all your notes. If you jot down reminders or to-do lists which you don’t need afterwards, then this shouldn’t be a problem.  In fact, it may even be convenient as you can skip over the usual dialog reminding you to save the file.

But if you do need those notes, then you can easily save them before closing the tab.  To do so, just use Chrome’s “Save page as…” function from the menu and save it as an HTML webpage. You should then be able to access the file in any browser. The file is saved in HTML format only.

If you hated the hassle of opening up a second app just to copy-paste or record something, try this out. This little trick will help simplify the process and speed things up.
