TreePad Lite

TreePad is light-weight Data Storage Program. It is the light version of TrePad. It stores data is a ascii(text) file, and is almost completely intuitive to use, so there are no learning curves to struggle with before running it.

It's a very good program for storing small to medium pieces of data in one place. It works very well for copying parts of web pages, for further use or study. Its layout looks like a windows file explorer, and you have complete control over the folders and the structure. One of its finest windows features is that it doesn't muck up your system. It is a stand alone executable.

An extension for Mozilla/Firebird based browsers looks promising. It allows wysiwyg editing of mediawiki pages from within a browser. Unfortunately, it is still bug-ridden. Not recommended for persons unfamiliar with beta-testing Mozilla extensions.
