    Net Snippets

    This is a must have utility! It works very smoothly for me and is great for saving pieces of or whole web pages for easy reference. There is a free version and some paid versions, depending on your needs:

    A similar utility set is offered at Cogitum LC -
    Image Co-Tracker 2.0 and Cogitum Co-Citer. Both <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> for personal use.

    Not quite. You need two separate programs to seemingly do what net snippets does with one. Net Snippets saves everything together, text and images, sort of like the MS .MHT format for saving webpages. NS also lets you set keywords for searching and add comments. The one thing none of the additions seem to offer is mark-up functionality.

    I do think they are asking too much for the upgraded versions (standard is $79.95 and professional is $129.95). Too many companies are too full of themselves and limit the popularity of their products and their company growth by charging excessive $$ for their products. IMO, the standard product should be priced at $29.95 and the professional at $59.95. They would probably get a lot more business at these price points.

    If memory serves correctly, the fact that there a two separate Cogitum programs is inconsequential to the user. It just means that the save functions, which appear in different (appropriate) contexts, connect back to two components rather than one. I don't use it anymore because I use my proxy (Proxomitron) to insert my desired markup - date, description, URL etc. then save as .MHT as you mention.

    I agree that some companies appear to charge too much for too little, but that depends on their target market. They may, for instance, be marketting for business clients, who often don't care about the cost, since it's all tax deductible.

    Just to clarify, what I meant by markup was the ability to make notations upon the page. Things like circles, little notes, etc. directly on top of the web page itself. Date, descriptions, tags, etc. are not generaly considered markup.

    I always refered to such "notations upon the page" as annotations, and HTML (hypertext markup language) tags as markup. But I see what you're getting at.
