It’ll be interesting to see if Google and/or Apple, assuming they someday try to offer a OneNote-like product (Google already had one, but killed it), will be as proactive on supporting the leading browsers. And yes, Chrome is next; see the final link below. As a counter-example of this sort of commitment, a post on the blog referenced below also notes “Due to the Adobe license limitation, the Acrobat Reader plugin to support Linked Notes goes to death.” Maybe we’re-more-open-than-Apple Adobe will address that issue someday.
One of the new features added in OneNote 2010 is the linked note taking. This is a great way to take notes and have OneNote automatically link back what you were viewing while writing those notes. You can read about it here:
- OneNote 2010 and PowerPoint 2010: Easy note-taking while reading presentations
- Take linked notes in OneNote 2010
Out of the box OneNote will link notes to Word, PowerPoint and Internet Explorer. However like many of you I use a bunch of different browsers and I wanted to point you to a Firefox extension which allows you to have linked notes to OneNote 2010. You can read about it here: Linked Note Taking extension for Firefox (direct .zip download).
A big thanks goes to Mao Chen!
