New Web Clipper

Evernote lets you clip and save web pages right into your account with
a single click. With the Evernote Web Clipper you get more than just a
link, you get context too, including images, text, and the source URL.
Now, whenever you see an article, blog post, recipe, product, or
travel destination that you want to remember, select the interesting
information and click the clipper button. Everything is sent directly
into your Evernote account so that you can access it whenever you want.

This is a major milestone for the Evernote Beta, and we could not have
achieved it without your suggestions, ideas, and support.
