"A really useful tool for researchers and website..."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I don't usually review products because I usually couldn't be bothered to take the time out, but I really was blown away with this widget and decided to break my trend...

As a writer and someone who conducts web research, this tool allows me to find the top results in a whole bunch of search engines. Then compiles it in one easy to read notebook. If only I had this when writing papers! Darn.

But also, it's helpful to track where my articles are placed and how my website is doing in the search engines for search terms. SInce it compiles it all in a handy interface for offline viewing I can quickly scan the document to track performance.

One thing that I couldn't have figured out on my own (I had to read the description within the Version Tracker information) was that you can archive all of the pages using the script "Load MegaSearch" it takes all the links and copies that specific page with graphics and layout and all. A very sweet feature for researching so you can read dozens of articles or websites from within one document in it's original formatting.

I would like to see more customization, such as the ability to use other search engines or display more results, etc. Of course, you might be able to do this, but I can't figure it out yet. Also, it'd be great to have other search engines (say highbeam.com or magportal.com or findarticles.com , etc)

I've used Notetaker for a while now, a year and a half or so, and I haven't even fully used all of the features, it's pretty scalable for my needs at least.

Overall, a very simple but powerful widget that taps into the power of NoteTaker. If you use NoteTaker, it's a useful tool. If you don't use NoteTaker, it's a good thing to check out if you do research or write articles, books or take a lot of notes.
