Web Research seems very interesting... how does it store the websites? Local Website Archive stores the html so you dont need LWA to view the articles you've downloaded. Does Web Research use a proprietary format?
To be honest, it has been a year or two since I last used Web Research, and I do not have it on the computer I bought this year. I was never all that concerned about whether it used a proprietary format, since I was interested only in retrieving and consulting information I had saved, not exporting it. I just went onto the Web Research website, and here's what it says about exporting documents:
Web Research offers various methods to export documents and folders:
Export as files in original format
Export as "Single File Web Page" (mht format)
Export as album (chm format)
Export as a Document Package
Create a Web Page Presentation
Copy the Web Research address of a document
Transfer to Microsoft Word
Programming interface (API)
External linking via Web Research protocol handler
Perhaps I'm not understanding the above correctly, but a couple of the items seem to suggest that the material is not saved in a proprietary format. I think you'd be best off writing to the company to find out for sure.
