Google launched a Drive feature that may indicate that it's ready to challenge Evernote.

In a Google+ post, the search giant said that it is launching a "save to Drive" extension to its Chrome browser. The general idea is that you can grab content from around the Web and store it. Images and links can also go to Drive.

The feature sounds a lot like Evernote to some degree. Evernote stores notes, pictures and other items to its cloud. Now that Drive is offering a clip service to go with its Docs, Google appears to be at least pondering a challenge to Evernote.

What remains to be seen is whether Google can become a viable threat to Evernote. There's something to be said for focus. For instance, multiple companies are eyeing challenges to Dropbox and Box, but both of those services keep plugging along. In the Evernote case, one key perk is that it works on multiple platforms. For now, Save to Google Drive is limited to Chrome.
