I tried Onfolio, mentioned by Ray Ozzie this morning. Onfolio is an IE 'sidebar' for clipping information you find on the web and share them via e-mailing. You can save webpages locally and search them later. You can also launch it on its own as a 'deskbar'. Onfolio Publisher is just a simple HTML editor that saves in MHTML format. Standard version cost $20+ and Pro version costs $50 more. Publisher is available only in the Pro version.
Onfolio reminded me of a product I designed long time ago that allowed web users to record their browsing sessions online and share them with friends. Mine used a VCR metaphor so it's different from Onfolio in that respect but collecting and sharing is the same.
Onfolio is a neat product, but I didn't enjoy the UI at all. Sidebar UI was too restricting and deskbar UI had window overlapping problem. Online Publisher was too simple as a 'report' editor. Onfolio is written in .NET so I felt it was too heavy for the benefits it provided. .NET is cool but it's not yet ready for everyday desktop use, particularly if it is a utility running all the time. I think I would have like it more if it had more blogging support and smaller footprint. Too bad. [Don Park's Daily Habit]
