you can later on view all the saved text by signing into your google notebook account. your notebook can be made public so as to allow users to search the notebooks, you can create more than one notebooks in a account too.
the beauty of using the extension is that you do not have to open a new window to login to your account and a new window just pops up when you try to save something.

* stay in your browser window.
* organize your notes from the web page you're on.
