A little-known feature baked into each version of Chrome is a note-taking application. It’s not going to replace a full-featured text edtior, or OneNote, anytime soon, but it’s handy to jot down a quick note while you’re on the phone, or listening in during a meeting. The feature is mostly hidden, but a simple text command opens it up whenever you need it.
1. Open Chrome.
2. Copy the following text:
data:text/html, <html contenteditable>
and paste it into the Omnibar.
3. Press Enter and type your message (or HTML) into the editor.
4. For a more permanent solution, copy/paste the text into a text editor or OneNote once you have the time. You can’t save it in the browser.
