a chrome extension "clip to moo.do"
Then we could collect the title and url to moo.do very quick and easy.
** WORKAROUND** I found a chrome extension called Format Link (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/format-link/pocemhmkmchpgamlnocemnbhlcjcbjgg) which on left click does copy the page title and url in markdown. When you paste this in Moo.do you will get the page title with the url as link. Very very helpful for fast bookmarking pages in Moo.do
Evernote does a great Job clipping content from the browser. I hope that one day Moo.do can replace Evernote for me.

I've been using a workaround. I tried the Chrome extension for both Workflowy and Dynalist. The Workflowy one doesn't format the copied link the way that Moo.do likes it but the Dynalist one does. So, to add a link to the tab I'm currently in to Moo.do, I click the Dynalist extension. (it takes me to a Dynalist tab in Chrome if it is already open, or creates a new instance if it is not). I ignore that and click on my Moo.do tab (or the Windows app) and paste it in Moo.do wherever I'd like. It formats nicely with the title of the page as the item name with the appropriate link. Not a perfect solution but it gets the job done for now.

In the interim, the Email This chrome extension is a great way to clip content into Moo.do. Content is sent to your GMail inbox with formatting on par with the Evernote Web Clipper. From there you use all of the existing Moo.do functionality to make it useful (Move to Outline, Calendar, Snooze, etc.).
I combine it with a GMail filter to label the inbounds emails for easy archiving.

Example of Asana's Chrome extension:
Adding this feature would be much more useful if rich text or markdown links were supported in some way: https://feedback.moo.do/forums/274238-general/suggestions/6993725-hyperlink-text
I personally would like to see the text be the page name, linked to the URL, with the selected text in the note.
If a simple add API was provided lots of folks would happily write this for us:
This option is VERY USEFUL. Just right-click in Chrome, choosing the option 'Moo.do: Save to Inbox', and voila: the Title + URL + Selected text as item Note, would be saved under the Moo.do INBOX item. If the INBOX item is not present at the Outline, could be created automatically at the same time.

Yes ! Exactly like the "add to outline" fonction in a Gmail panel.
I think this is becoming more important. Inbox by google now has added a "save to inbox" extensuion. It already hss the snooze feature I want to continue using moo.do, but the clipper is a big deal for me
