Request: suggestions for web research editor
I do a lot of researching on the web. I look for new programming tools, stock market research, etc.
Buy a full copy of Adobe Acrobat - not just the reader.
Hmm, sounds like you want E-Quill. It's a plugin for your browser that lets you do all that. If I remember correctly, it stored the annotations etc along with the URL that you edited on their server then produced an URL that you could send to people. When others went to that URL, it sucked the page through their server, added the annotations and stuff and then sent it on to their browser so that they saw the edited version without even needing a plugin. All for free too. I remember thinking that it was really cool when I first saw it three or four years ago, even though I couldn't think of any time that I'd actually use it. Unfortunately it looks like they've sold up and moved on... http://www.e-quill.com/
I was looking for an alternative to E-Quil and came across this - http://delver.org/dave/eqcolo/01.html I guess the guys that built it were kind of sad to see it go.
Another vote for Adobe Acrobat. That's how I work. I load a page into a PDF file, highlight, annotate, and have a copy to keep. It's very handy. If you catch some place like Office Depot with a coupon, you can get it for a reasonable price.

Google Cache provides a unique URL with highlighting, in a general sort of way. No annotations though.
How about the obvious... Microsoft Word? One click of the W in the toolbar and Word opens with the current web page. It can then be edited and saved locally as a doc, htm, mht, or whatever.
NetSnippets is pretty cool and easy to use.
