WebNotes helps professionals manage the staggering amounts of information available
online by making it easy to collect, organize, and share information quickly and
effectively. We also help save paper by reducing the need to print. Our customers
include law firms, marketing agencies, universities, and consultants.
WebNotes began as a side project during an MIT class on web research. At the time,
students were being instructed to use bookmarks, and copy & paste text into Word
Documents. The WebNotes founders knew there had to be a better way. After tinkering
with some prototypes and kicking around the idea for a few years, they decided to
formally start a company, and in 2007 WebNotes was born.
WebNotes is compatible with Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Safari.
It can be run either as a web browser plug-in or as a "bookmarklet" (a special link
that runs WebNotes without the need to install anything). Users' data is stored
online with the utmost attention to security and privacy, and can be accessed through
our web site from any internet-connected computer.
The WebNotes team is also behind crocodoc, a tool that allows people to
collaboratively comment on and markup PDF files.
