Detailed list of changes

  Why did ContentSaver get a new name?

  • The new name Web Research is more meaningful and easier to understand, sounds more interesting, and no longer primarily focuses on archiving but on research.
    means collecting and evaluating information for (later) reuse. Much more people perform research activities than just save and archive Web pages. Thus, the new name should create more attention and attract a broader group of people.
    And finally, ContentSaver has always offered more than just being a "saver" for "content", which its name implied.
  • Research on the Web is often just temporary—for example, before buying a certain product, and the information is no longer needed after the product is bought. Therefore, it's not always necessary to permanently archive Web pages, which was the main focus of ContentSaver (thus, the data files of Web Research are no longer called "archives", but "collections").
    Web Research now covers the whole usage of content captured from the Web: for short-term and long-term research projects as well as permanent archiving.

  What will happen to my existing archives?

  • Your existing archives will be preserved while upgrading and automatically reappear in Web Research.
  • The file format of the archive files doesn't change. Web Research archives are backward-compatible and can also be used by ContentSaver users.
  • Existing Server Archives can still be used in Web Research. It's not necessary to change anything on the server.

  How are the Firefox extension or the Outlook Add-in affected?

  What is "Web Research Personal"?

  • Web Research Personal is a new edition of Web Research that contains fewer features at a lower price.
  • If you've already licensed ContentSaver 2, you already own a valid license also for Web Research Professional, the premium product of the Web Research family. Thus, the Personal edition of Web Research should not be relevant to you.

  Do I need a new license for Web Research?

  • If you've already licensed ContentSaver 2, your license is also valid for Web Research Professional.
  • It's not required to re-enter your license data when switching to Web Research. The license already present on your computer will continue to be used.
  • If you later need to reinstall Web Research, Web Research will accept your ContentSaver 2 license data when you enter it.
