If this application by Yahoo actually comes to fruition, it sounds like an online researcher's dream!
From the post at the Yahoo! Search Blog:
"Search Pad tackles this problem [the problem of using multiple programs] by intelligently detecting users’ research intent, automatically collecting visited sites, and providing simple tools for users to organize and add notes – all in one place. Users can easily edit, delete, and re-order notes they’ve taken on a topic, and then print them out or email them to friends and family. They can also save the notes to access later by logging in with their Yahoo! ID."
If any readers already have access to this program please let us know! We' love to see a live demo.
