Web clips are portions of webpages that you can store in Dashboard for later browsing. Unlike something like a picture clipping these clips are updated as the webpage is updated, so let's see how that works. File > Open in Dashboard. You'll be given a little rectangle and you use this to select portions of the website that you'd like to keep track of. So I'm going to choose this, which are the three hot stories of the day, and click on it. That's now selected, if I wanted to I could resize that box but the current size is good. Now I just click Add at the top of the window and that clip appears in Dashboard.
Now keep an eye on it. You'll notice that as it sits there it updates itself. Here's is our second headline, and here's our third headline. Just like any Dashboard widget you can drag it around, and if you want to hold down the Option key and you can get rid of it, and back to Safari with a swipe. And honestly that's it. Where you will getting benefits from Web clips is using them for portions of Webpages that are updated fairly regularly.
This allows you to view updated information without the other clutter that may fill that page. It's an often overlooked Safari feature but one that can be really helpful.
