Daniel Escapa's OneNote Blog : Linked Note Taking & Linked Note Taking extension for Firefox

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:

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!
