Chrome: Right now, Evernote is probably the best way to clip and save items on the web. But if you want something simple that works with your Google account, then Piconka is worth a look.
Like Evernote, Piconka is a web clipper. The free Chrome extension is easy to use. Select text or an image with your mouse cursor and drag it to the centre of your screen. A small green box with a "+" will appear. Drop your selected data in it and you're done.
To check out all your clips, hit the Piconka icon in your toolbar for a good-looking pane where you can also drag-and-drop those items. You can also hook up the service with your Google account so that all the clips are saved directly in your Google Drive in a custom folder. It seems that Piconka is also planning to add the option to save to your Dropbox or Box account in the future, as those options are currently greyed out in the Settings.
