When you install Office 2010, it installs the OneNote 2010 add-on for Internet Explorer as well. This add-on allows you to easily send text to OneNote from directly inside the IE8. The advantage of using this add-on is that you do not have to manually copy content form IE and then paste it in OneNote. The add-on is enabled by default in IE.
