Finding information on the Web is the easy part. Organizing the resulting heap of links, graphics, and text is the real trick. Onfolio does a good job of both. In addition to standalone Deskbar and Publisher interfaces, it installs as an Internet Explorer plug-in, allowing you to capture text, graphics, and Web pages with a single right click. The program stores clippings in a lovely blue-and-white IE sidebar, organized in a hierarchical tree structure. Onfolio categorizes each clip by name, flag, type, and date, and lets you sort and search for them the same way. The program has its flaws, though. You can't capture mixed graphics and text fragments by right-clicking in IE, though you can through the sidebar. The program takes an enormous 36MB of memory, and there seems to be no way to exit the service. However, those are minor quibbles. By and large, Onfolio makes a fine Internet assistant.
