It looks like the pasting code gets confused by this. I'll file this as something we need to try and work around in the future. Thanks for letting us know about the problem!
It does look like OmniFocus' clipping feature handles content from the address bar in Chrome, though. You get the page title as the name of the action, with a link back to the page in the note field. Does that work for your purposes?
I have just gone from mac mail to gmail and find gmail is better on Chrome than safari for a bunch of reasons. Sadly though the elegance of the omni clipping service in Safari ie - highlighting text on a web page, hitting my shortcut key, and have the quick entry box appear with highlighted text as the title with the url in notes - doesn't happen in chrome.
Several features in Chrome eg a plugin that allows css in email signatures don't exist in safari. I can't take advantage because the ease of clipping gmails via safari is too valuable to me to lose. If you guys can fix it I for one would be really grateful.
