HovText is a small freeware and open source Windows application that removes any formatting from the clipboard and it also works as a simple clipboard manager. Any text in the clipboard will be pasted as raw text without any HTML code, font size, color or layout etc. HovText remembers also the last 10 copied texts (both formatted and unformatted) and you can filter out whatever text you need with regular expressions.

A typical scenario is to copy a qoute from Internet Explorer and paste this quote into Outlook or Word. In the most cases it will paste the formatting along also and that is often inconvenient as it spoils the current formatting. Some applications has their own way of importing the unformatted text, but with HovText ALL programs has this option and it works in the same way all the times.

Another typical scenario is that you need to copy all email addresses on a webpage or if you want to grep all movie links from a web-directory, then you just apply a filter and paste this into eg. a WGET script or Outlook and so on.
