The OneNote team at Microsoft takes a surprising step forward with the Web Clipper: From now on, it is open source. The code is visible to everyone and ambitious programmers may take part in the development.
It’s unclear to me why Microsoft chose to take this step. Also I am not sure what this would mean to further development of the Webclipper. But I’d like to see this rather optimistic. The result might be faster bug fixing, more features and faster updated. At least that’s what I hope for.
Here you find the Webclipper project on Github.
