OrangeNote - A must-have text-clipping productivity enhancer!

Barry's Best works hard every day, raking through the dusty soil of the Internet, to find Internet tools and applications that you will find useful. Some get me more excited than others, and this is one of those.

I frequently find that I can get more done faster if I save text clippings for repetitive use, and especially if the means of finding and pasting them is simple and efficient. This application has these attributes. From the developer:

"A full-text index means instant retrieval and as-you-type results. No more scouring your hard disk for the famous Lost Text File. Plus, the ability to quickly insert text clippings into any application using custom key combos is great for email, web forms, customer service, developers, gamers, you name it!

OrangeNote even keeps a fully automatic history of all clipboard activity on your computer (without slowing it down) so you can keep track of everything you've copied. Click an icon beside a previous clipping to instantly set it as the active clipboard, or use one of the 10 built-in hotkeys for pasting previous copies.

OrangeNote works great as a text backup utility, too. For example, if you're writing out a lengthy reply or post to a web page and want to make sure you don't accidentally lose what you've written (it's happened to me!), just copy it to the clipboard! It's as simple as that—OrangeNote will make sure a copy of it is kept safe and sound in its index. Each time you copy, a new note will be created so you can never accidentally copy over the text on the clipboard."
