    Is there anything for the Mac which will let me instantly save information about accessed websites, such as date accessed, url etc, for use in bibliographies? Something similar to the feature in OneNote, where if you clip any text from a website it will give you the URL, title, date accessed etc. Its just thaT im writing many papers this year at Uni, and want something a bit more powerful than merely adding the bookmark.

    There is this application called 'onlife' that sits in the background and tracks all your activities on each particular day. Google it. :)

    Wow, thanks.
    I already have Onlife, but never thought of it as a reference tracker. I assigned a hot key to tag a webpage as 'research' or 'reference', and you can mark it in Safari. Then going back to Onlife just filter Research tags and all of my links are there with date and time accessed. Very nice. All I need now is for it to spew out the info in Harvard referencing format and im set :)

    I am starting to wonder what else it could do for me beside tracking what my sis does on my computer. :rolleyes:
