Docear is a unique solution to academic literature management, i.e. it helps you organizing, creating, and discovering academic literature. Among others, Docear offers: 1) A single-section user-interface that allows the most comprehensive organization of your literature. With Docear, you can sort documents into categories; you can sort annotations (comments, bookmarks, and highlighted text from PDFs) into categories; you can sort annotations within PDFs; and you can view multiple annotations of multiple documents, in multiple categories – at once; 2) A ‘literature suite concept‘ that combines several tools in a single application (pdf management, reference management, mind mapping, …). This allows you to draft your own papers, assignments, thesis, etc. directly in Docear and copy annotations and references from your collection directly into your draft; and 3) A recommender system that helps you to discover new literature: Docear recommends papers which are free, in full-text, instantly to download, and tailored to your information needs. And did they mention that Docear is free, open source, available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, not evil (open data formats such as BibTeX and XML, no registration required, no lock-in), and offers PDF metadata retrieval, free online-backup of your mind-maps, a monitoring function for new files (PDFs, images, etc.), a free MS-Word add-on, …?

Brave Web Browser

November 21, 2017

Brave Web Browser
http://www.brave.com/

Brave is a web browser built to safeguard end-user privacy against tracking companies and intrusive advertisers while also providing a way for content producers to be paid for their work. According to Brendan Eich, co-founder of Brave Software, the web currently faces a “primal threat” caused by a growing conflict between users and the advertising companies so often necessary for authors to be compensated for the work they put online. In addition to their sheer intrusiveness, ads and trackers also increase the “page weight” of sites, which can lead to increased data charges for mobile users. The Brave homepage presents data showing that these costs add up to about $270 per year for the average mobile user. By default, Brave blocks these ads and trackers. Users may instead opt-in to a monthly contribution that Brave Software will distribute among sites the user has visited. Brave for mobile is available for iOS and Android devices. Beta releases of Brave for desktops are available for Windows, macOS, and several Linux distributions. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™.
