WebNotes is an online service that offers tools to annotate, organize and share your annotations with others. It is different from usual bookmarking sites, it allows you to post notes on any web page or highlight the text you want for later reference.
WebNotes works as a browser add-on or a simple bookmarklet. Using the webnotes is easy, install the toolbar or bookmarklet and when you want to annotate or add notes to a web page select the tools like sticky note ot Highlighter from the toolbar and start annotating. The highlighted text and the notes automatically synced to your webnotes account. The notes can be categorized using Folders, tags would have been a better choice instead of folders for organizing annotations.
You can also access all your folders and associated notes from Firefox sidebar using Organizer button on the toolbar. The added annotations can be easily searched using the search function both in browser sidebar or from webnotes account. The added annotations can be shared with others either by email or via URL. But others can’t edit these pages without registering to the service, a good option will be allowing others to edit these annotations via a simple password protection or something similar.
WebNotes is currently in beta and they have provided me 25 invites to share with our readers. Leave a comment if you want to get invited to the service, make sure you leave valid email address while commenting.
