NetXtract Personal helps you organize Web and document research into your own database. The interface is plain, but it's easy to use with a tree menu on the left with designated folders and a viewing window on the right.
Buttons at the top of the page make it easy to add a new entry, print, or select how you wish to view the information in the database--either by date, URL, or keyword. There's a button to share databases with other users, but it's only available in the paid version. Adding a new entry is simple; just click on the New Entry button and a prompt at the bottom of the window guides you through the process of filling out the title, category, and body.
There are a few customization features offered via the Preferences menu, such as the ability to change the font and background color. You also can decide how many entries you want to appear on a page and you can even assign hot-key combinations to easily and quickly activate the add-on. Though it's free and claims no limitations, some features are available only in the registered version. Even so, anyone involved in basic research will certainly appreciate NetXtract Personal's organizational help.
This Internet research productivity tool helps you to quickly pinpoint information within Web pages and documents. Save information to your own personal desktop knowledgebase. netXtract automatically indexes each document displayed by IE, extracts all contexts for any key term you choose and allows you to 'jump' directly to the context you find most interesting. Once you've found relevant information, you decide exactly what to save for future reference in your Knowledge Base. NetXtract's Knowledge Base (KB) Manager allows you to categorize, maintain and query your Knowledge Base. Selecting any entry saved from a Web document returns you directly to that point in the original online document. You can also save to your Knowledge Base from any other application (MS Word, e-mail client, and so on).
Version 3 has full IE 7 support and includes key phrase indexing, word definitions, knowledgebase data export (HTML, XML, MS Access formats).
