Gerald Bäck & Max Kossatz. archify
archify archives everything you see on the web or in your social streams (Facebook, Twitter etc) – then lets you search it quickly. The tool is seamlessly integrated into most browsers and runs automatically, so there’s no need to bookmark or manually save information. Nowadays people don’t have time to trawl through their browser history and twitter feeds to find the article they read ten days ago. They want to search across multiple devices and through all their personal data streams.
