When we surf the web, we usually find lots of interesting news and information. This, in turn, allows us to acquire more knowledge. We can learn about a variety of topics and even life as a whole. We get to learn new quotes as well as new facts about the world. The thing is we can’t really retain all of this information especially when our focus is on something else.
Fortunately, there’s a way for you to easily create snippets of almost anything that you’ve learned while surfing the web. There are web apps and extensions that can help you do that. One good example is Nuggets for Chrome.
