I love Evernote, I’ve even written about it before, but I’ll be the first to admit I’m not using it to it’s full potential. I primarily use Evernote to take clips notes from my browser.
By highlighting a section of a blog post or article online I can “clip” it and save it into Evernote. Evernote allows you to organize your clippings by folder but also tag them with key words making it easy to find that quote or statistic later. I still use Delicious for bookmarking (more on that later) but I prefer Evernote for online note-taking.
I also use it to clip things people have written about me online. Mostly nice stuff (because some days you just need the warm-fuzzies) and interesting stuff too like that time that Facebook used one of my blog posts in their smear campaign against Google.
As I said I don’t use Evernote to its fullest so I have included this video and some recommended reading if you want to explore its potential.

I love Evernote and I’ve never actually done any web clipping so you’ve prompted me that I must re-investigate. I use it as an electronic notebook at work for meetings, projects, classes, things I’m researching – pretty much everything. It’s easy to use, easy to search, mobile-friendly and also I can use it via the web when I’m sitting on the library desk and not at my own desk. What’s not to like!
