Notepad Online – Take all your notes online

    Welcome to Notepad Online – The free online notepad.

    Notepad online is a completely free to use browser-based text editor. Notepad online allows you to create and edit multiple plain-text files as well as rich-text files from within your browser from anywhere in the world with a working internet connection.

Logging in comes with the advantage of keeping documents saved for you, so you may save online and access them later. However, Notepad Online gives you the option of downloading your created documents directly to your system, or phone and resume from wherever you left off. The documents are stored and retrieved in .txt format.

    The great thing about Notepad online is that your content is being autosaved very frequently, so that if you experience a browser crash, you will be able to retrieve your data from where you left off and resume working on it right where you left off. Notepad Online is just as accessible from your home as it is from a supercomputer, from anywhere in the world from any device.
