Windows only: CintaNotes is lightweight, web-friendly portable manager for your notes and web text clippings. CintaNotes offers basic cataloging of notes by date and tags, but offers convenient supports URL retrieval from Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari. In other words, if you clip a paragraph from a web site that has links, the links will remain active when CintaNotes picks it up. You can also configure CintaNotes to vanish to your system tray and activate from a hot key anywhere you want to call it up. CintaNotes is freeware, Windows only. If CintaNotes doesn't fit the bill, check out the Hive Five winners for best note-taking tools.
