Detailed list of changes
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.
Research means collecting and evaluating
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
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
- Existing Server Archives can still be used in Web Research. It's
not necessary to change anything on the server.
are the Firefox extension or the Outlook Add-in affected?
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.
- To see a detailed comparison of both Web Research editions,
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.
