Cool tool: Opera Notes

Something I didn’t pay much attention to until a few months ago is the Notes functionality built into Opera (desktop). I used to use Notational Velocity or SlipBox, which are both excellent.

Since I spend about 80% of my computer time in Vim and Opera, and since Opera is my primary browser (and e-mail client), using this functionality instead of a separate app works well for me. I don’t notice any difference in speed compared to Notational Velocity; the way they work is similar, but I like Opera’s integration with the browser, Opera Link and e-mail.

For those not familiar with Notes, I tried my hand at making a screencast.
