Chrome Extension that turns your "New Tab" into a note taking tool


I am opening TextEdit, many times. Creating a new file, or maintaining one. All that just because of writing down some notes or text to copy. Need to save the file, sometimes forget to. I need to open the file. Need to switch between Chrome and TextEdit (or OneNote, you name it).

Sounds like enough of extra work for you? This is something I was trying to solve. So here it is.


I have made a new Google Chrome Extension that makes copying multiple texts between pages so much easier, or writing down notes, todos, ideas. Every edit is autosaved and can be seen in other Chrome windows as well!

The name of the extension is My Notes. And what it does? It turns your "New Tab" into a note taking tool!


  • Great for Notes, Todos, sharing text (Copy/Paste)

  • It works immediately after you open a "New Tab"

  • Every edit and paste is saved (and waiting for you once you come back)

  • It is Synchronized across every Chrome window you have open

Final words

I hope you will find this tool useful and it helps you be more productive.

If you have any suggestions, do not hesitate to send them.

Thank you!

Nice. Ridiculously simple code, too. (Yes, I peeked.)

Thank you, I like to keep things simple.

(Have to give some credit to Extensions API too, for the simplicity provided.)
