It's amazing that browsers are still so primitive. I've been thinking of
making a researchers' broswer encapsulating internet explorer and keepiing
the results in a dtabase. Keep the pages too, and check them automatically
for updates.

Then dynamically keep a favorites web page like you say, with the ability to
write a note on each web page as you tag it , view the notes with the
favorites, search the notes,a nd search all the pages or just the
interesting pages oyu have viusited in the last x days. Or forever. disk
space is cheap, and the text part of web pages is generally pretty small.

What else shoudl be in ther?
