Nothing too fancy. Just a plain-text editor with a beautifully crafted minimalistic interface that helps you stay focused on what you need to write.


Never lose your notes with its auto save feature. Every time you make changes, it will automatically store the data locally within your browser.

Word Count

Track how many words there are in your text document with real-time word counter. The number of words will update as you type and make changes.

Find & Replace

Find and replace allows you to quickly seach for a word or phrase in the whole page and substitute it with something else.


It takes advantage of your browser's native spellchecker to instantly find spelling mistakes. Simply right-click the red underlined word and choose the correct spelling.


Getting a hard copy of your notes has never been easier. You can prepare the document for printing or save it as a PDF file with a single click of a button.


Online Notepad is a free browser-based text editor that allows you to create and edit multiple plain-text files in your browser. No registration and login required. It is great for writing quick notes and printing a simple page. What makes it special is the autosave functionality which saves your draft every second. This prevents data loss in case you accidentally close the tab, or the browser window suddenly crashes. The document you're working on will be automatically restored when you visit back, even when you close and reopen your browser. There's also support for saving documents directly to your computer. Online Notepad is packed with core features that your common text editor provides, including undo, redo, copy, cut, paste, find and replace, font formatting, character map, insert date and time, emoji list, spell checker, word counter, open and save files, and print page.

How does it work?

Changes are saved automatically as you work thanks to HTML5 localStorage API. It grabs a copy of the content from the text editor and saves it to your computer. With this method, your data never leaves your device. The default time interval at which draft is saved is 1000ms or 1 second. Your notes will stay in the web browser until you clear the cookies and other site data. You can try it out by typing anything in the editor and refreshing the page.
