TMO at Macworld - Softchaos Shows Webstractor with New Radar Capability

by , 10:20 AM EST, January 12th, 2006

SAN FRANCISCO -- Softchaos, maker of the web content capturing and processing application Webstractor, was showing the new radar feature added to the software during this week's Macworld Expo show. Reza Farhad, CEO, took some time to walk The Mac Observer through the product and highlight some of the major features.

Webstractor acts as a personal librarian and archivist, watching as you use the built-in browser and keeping track of all the Web sites you have visited. It saves the content of each Web page for future access, and it maintains a history of all the sites you visited in a session.

Where Webstractor really shines is that after you are done surfing, you can then use its editing tools to remove and rearrange content, allowing you to focus on your task. Of particular note is an attribution feature, so you can give credit to the sources of your information. When you are done editing, you can then publish your work as a PDF document that anyone can use.

New in version 1.5 is a radar function, which can monitor and update web pages for keywords, and update the captured version of the page when an update occurs. Webstractor retails for US$79, with a special show price of US$69.
