So many times while jotting down some text quickly (especially over a during call) we search for windows notepad. We forget that we have a full fledged browser always running which is a great software to do anything. In fact I have composed Gmail drafts and sometimes typed in Google to temporarily note down phone numbers and addresses. I found a trick to turn the browser quickly into a text editor/notepad
- Open a new browser tab
- Type the following in the address bar and hit Enter
data:text/html, <html contenteditable>
- You should be able to type in the web page now.. You can also paste text here from your clipboard
- To make it easily accessible bookmark it on the bookmark toolbar
- Optionally you can save text like a web page from the browser with Ctrl + S key.
