Webstractor 1.1 Fulfills Promise

Send Article to a Friend

Webstractor 1.1 Fulfills Promise -- "First children," my father used to say, "are like first pancakes; you should throw them out and try again." Software, too, often needs a revision or two to achieve its proper form. In my review of Softchaos's Webstractor 1.0.1 (see "The Simple Brilliance of Webstractor" in TidBITS-737), I raved about this innovative program, which functions as a kind of combination Web browser and scrapbook - it stores copies of Web pages as you browse, and enables you to edit those pages to create your own document for reading or PDF export - but I noted that Webstractor was a bit slow, and predicted that attention would be given to performance in the next revision. Version 1.1 has borne me out - it's lightning-fast. It also boasts numerous small but significant interface improvements, such as letting you categorize and sort downloaded pages, and better navigation. Softchaos has clearly been listening to users and paying attention to detail, and overall the program now feels effortless and intuitive. If you hesitated to try the demo earlier, you should try it now. This is a free update for registered users. Webstractor costs 50 British pounds (about US$85) and requires Mac OS X 10.3 Panther.
