Recently, Google announced shutting down few of its services i.e Google Notebook, Google Video, Google Catalog Search, Jaiku, and Dodgeball.

The only service I’m going to miss is the Google Notebook extension for Firefox which I used a lot for taking quick notes and site links. I hardly ever visited the other services.

Alternatives to Google Notebook

Now, if you also miss Google Notebook (like me), and are interested in a good alternative, check out the note-keeping web apps I have found and start using the one that suits you best!



Springnote allows you to create pages, to work on them together with your friends, and to share files. Springnote is also a great tool for group projects as it allows group members to easily collaborate. Advanced search, numerous templates, and 2GB of FREE File Storage are only few examples of how Springnote can help you. [Springnote]



Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere. [Evernote]



UberNote is a knowledge management tool enabling you to quickly store and access your content from anywhere. Easily submit notes using email, IM, and mobile devices or clip web content with the browser toolbar. With UberNote you can instantly access your notes and benefit from your own knowledge.

Zoho Notebook


With Zoho Notebook, you can create content of any type of text, image, audio, video, etc. and embed content from multiple applications. You can share a whole book, page or just an object on a page by granting read/write permissions. [Zoho Notebook]



On Clipmarks.com, you can see clips of text, images or video about all sorts of topics that other people find while surfing the web. The idea is that through each other, we can learn more, know more and enjoy more than we could possibly do alone. [Clipmarks]



Zotero is an easy-to-use yet powerful research tool that helps you gather, organize, and analyze sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects), and lets you share the results of your research in a variety of ways. An extension to the popular open-source web browser Firefox, Zotero includes the best parts of older reference manager software (like EndNote). [Zotero]



Diigo provides a browser add-on that can really improve your research productivity. As you read on the web, instead of just bookmarking, you can highlight portions of web pages that are of particular interest to you. You can also attach sticky notes to specific parts of web pages. [Diigo]
