Exactly… I’m flip-flopping between UR and Web Research for capturing web pages. UR is without question the more powerful product, but UR falls down on capturing web pages. UR took a big step forward with the addition of adding a window for selecting the location of the capture.

However, there are 2 other areas that need attention:

#1. Properly saving the web page…

Too often UR will not save all the content. WR on the other hand captures the page correctly 99% of the time. So it can be done.

#2. Speed of capture…

I have personally timed both UR and WR side by side. WR is considerably quicker than UR. (up to 5 times faster on some pages) So speeding up UR seems possible.

Obviously #1 is more important than #2.

In my mind UR is soooo close to the being the perfect information manager… I just wish they would address these concerns in the next release. (along with the AV issue)

Just to add my voice, I found Web Research much more reliable and much faster at screen capture.

Nontheless, I have abandoned Web Research because it does nothing else. UR's advantage of having everything in one place, so that I can mix screen captures with other types of information, for me far outweighs the speed of capture and occasional mis-capture.

But I echo the view that it would be great if UR could in the future match Web Research which I now see as the gold standard for web screen capture.

Also Stephen, Kinook made some browser adjustments that has -- at least -- sped up resolving websites on my machine. It may also affect other web clipping issues.

There is something in my opinion that should be made (and soon I should say) or UR will be known worldwide for what it shouldn't, slowness.

I have experimented myself this slow behavior in some of the functions: capturing web pages, storing documents, compacting. Apparently the culprit is the way UR indexes and zips. For example it took me around 3 hrs to compact my database of 400 MB absolutely containing only stored docs, no links at all, and I have a fast machine. Anyway and besides this annoying behavior, I continue to think without any doubt that UltraRecall is the best product of its kind, a grandeur, so much so that it will probably some day (and soon) will be the standard for any serious PIM. Only that this sluggish thing should be tackled with efficacy.
