Hey czechboy, thanks for the quick reply. Your suggestion of using Google or Zoho, even if offline, are good because they let you keep your files in a central location. Unfortunately, (though I may be wrong) that means I have to keep a browser or gears window open all the time. What I'm looking for is Windows Notepad functionality built-in to a FARR plugin for a quick, low-memory plain-text editor with no bells and whistles (like printing, text formatting, etc). A find and replace function would also be nice, but not necessary.
If this can be done without Google Gears installed, that would be terrific, but I can understand that plugins should appeal to as wide an audience as possible. Maybe my use of text snippets isn't so popular.
