What is a web clip?
Web clip is a copy of a web page, or a portion of it, saved for later use.

Scenario:

  • Let us say you have liked what you saw on a web page such as an article, a picture or a video.
  • You want to save the URL or page contents for use at a later date.
  • Or, simply, you want to return to the page later when you have more time.
  • You clip the page. You snag it, or copy it.
  • Save it on your computer or any mobile device.
  • Save it using a web clipper program such as Evernote.
