Microsoft Corporation has announced the acquisition of the assets of Onfolio, Inc., a privately held, Cambridge, Mass.-based Internet research and information management provider. Onfolio's technology has been incorporated into the Windows Live Toolbar designed to enhance the way people discover, save, and reuse their personal and professional Web research.
The new Onfolio Add-in for the Windows Live Toolbar beta is designed to give people more ways to collect information online and organize it on their PCs. People can harness this information by saving it onto their computer so that it can be accessed for use in documents, email messages, and blog postings. In addition, new online information is discovered and accessed through Onfolio's integrated Really Simple Syndication (RSS) aggregator and reader.
The Windows Live Toolbar beta with the Onfolio Add-in is available now and can be downloaded from the Web site. Collections of Web content created with the Onfolio Add-in can be organized and annotated with research notes, flags, keywords, highlighting, and more.
