For many note takers, Evernote is a bit too powerful, Google Notebook is going the way of the dodo bird and Notepad just isn’t an acceptable replacement. CintaNotes, which comes in regular and portable versions, is lightweight and free – and has some of the features that have made Evernote popular – web clipping and easily editable notes.
If you just need a lightweight way to take notes – and take them with you, check out CintaNotes. It does have a lot of features, including searching notes and hotkeys. CintaNotes works with Firefox, IE and Safari on Windows PCs.
