Google Docs vs WordPad opinions
Most users think Google Docs is a great alternative to WordPad.
flcferreira It's not a native stand-alone app. You need to run it in your browser. Should it work as a native app without overloading my poor hardware with a browser, I would consider it a good option.
use your Browser as your Notepad, take notes while you are browsing. From now on for notepad, you don't have to go anywhere, convert your browser into your favorite notepad. Customize it as you like it. TabNote is free and offline.
TabNote is a free and offline chrome extension which can use to take notes while you are browsing the web. 🤗 🤖 You can customize your TabNote by setting up font size, font color, font family, background color, spell checker etc.
