There are plenty of good note taking and clipping tools around — like Evernote — but maybe you just want something lightweight to help you gather research or quotes for use in a project. Webclip is a handy little extension for Google Chrome which is up to the task. It's got a single purpose: to save Web page text you select to Google Docs.
Once you've installed the extension, just highlight text on a Web page and press the webclip icon in your browser actions area. You'll see an OAuth dialog the first time, but from then on clips will be added directly to a document called 'webclips'. The extension even uses Chrome's notification system to tell you when your text has been successfully saved. As you can see in the screenshot, details about the source are saved as well. The page title, URL, and date of your capture are all inserted before your copied text.
Webclip has a lot of potential. With the addition of support for more than just text — say images or rich formatting — and the ability to save to more than one webclip doc, it would be a killer extension for Google Docs users who browse with Chrome.
