Evernote’s new browser extension called Clearly has arrived on Firefox. The add-on, which offers a better reading experience on the web by removing ads, links, navigational elements and other clutter from websites, was first released for Chrome users back in November.
Now the extension comes to its second platform, along with three built-in themes, and, of course, the ability to clip articles to Evernote for later reading.
Clearly takes on similar products like Readability or Instapaper, but the tie-in to Evernote makes it pretty handy for those who are already dedicated to the Evernote note-taking/clipping service. Once installed, you just click the extension to transform the site into an easy-to-read, ad-free layout. And when clipping an article for later reading, the extension is smart enough to aggregate multi-page articles into one single page.
On Firefox, the extension includes three built in themes (Newsprint, Notable and Nightowl), but if none of those fit your personal preference, you can build your own theme in the app’s settings.

Evernote allows users to capture, organize, and find information across multiple platforms. Users can take notes, clip webpages, snap photos using their mobile phones, create to-dos, and record audio. All data is synchronized with the Evernote web service and made available to clients on Windows, Mac, Web, and mobile devices. Additionally, the Evernote web service performs image recognition on all incoming notes, making printed or handwritten text found within images searchable.
