Onfolio Announces Free Web Research Tool for Distribution by Microsoft
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- Oct. 20, 2004 -- New Express Edition of Onfolio Web Research Tool Chosen by Microsoft to Showcase Innovative Applications Built on the Microsoft .NET Framework
Onfolio, Inc., an independent software company committed to helping people manage information found online, today officially launched Onfolio Express, a new edition of its popular search information manager to be distributed free of charge as part of the Microsoft Partner Pack for Windows XP. Onfolio Express is designed to help the fast growing number of PC users who need more powerful ways to capture, organize and share the information they find while doing research on the internet. Onfolio Express was chosen by Microsoft to be included in its Partner Pack , which was announced today as part of an initiative to highlight the benefits to end-users of downloading the Microsoft .NET Framework onto their PCs.
"Internet research has become an important activity for tens of millions of Windows users," said JJ Allaire, co-founder and CEO of Onfolio, "Onfolio Express will give these users a free tool for managing their links, and as they get more serious about collecting information they will be able to seamlessly upgrade to more powerful information capture capabilities in our Standard and Professional editions. Without the development productivity we have been able to achieve using the Microsoft .NET Framework, we could never have given our customers the breadth and depth of features we have delivered in the Onfolio product line."
Tightly integrated with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Onfolio Express builds on familiar methods of browsing and searching by adding the ability to quickly organize links to important information at the same pace as they are found. Onfolio Express helps people build collections of Web links to which they can add their own comments, annotations, categories and priority flags. With Onfolio Express, collected items are available in the browser though easy to manage folders and a fast search tool. Sharing links and comments using Onfolio Express is made simple through intuitive methods of publishing into Microsoft Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, emails, Web pages and more.
"We're excited to have Onfolio Express in the Partner Pack for Windows XP because it fulfills a need in the fast-growing area of search information management." said John Montgomery, director of product management in the developer division at Microsoft Corp. "The integration with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office makes Onfolio an excellent choice for people who need to collect information from the Web, quickly find that information later, and then use it to make decisions, create documents and communicate with colleagues."
Users of Onfolio Express can easily upgrade to the powerful web research tool Onfolio Professional, which uses the same basic interface as Onfolio Express, adding additional capabilities for collecting and publishing a broader range of web content. With Onfolio Professional, customers can to capture snippets of text, local copies of Web pages, Microsoft Office documents, PDF files and digital images.
