Recommendations for utility to paste plain text?

one of my pet peeves is different formatted texts. Is there an easy way in windows, firefox, or chrome to copy and paste unformatted text. My current strategy is to leave an instance of gvim open and us it as an intermediary, but it'd be nice if there were an easier way.

In some circumstances, paste-special can help. One of the choices (In Win7 at least) is "Unformatted text".
