http://www.evernote.com/ is definitely the most popular alternative. Others worth mentioning are Springpad, and Simplenote (especially if you use an iPhone/iPad). For task management, check out - http://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/1248/online-to-do-list-apps

Microsoft's OneNote I would suggest Microsoft's OneNote. Although this is a pay-for desktop app, you can use the online webapp version of OneNote for free at http://office.live.com/. You also get 25GB of storage with the free SkyDrive account, which is far more than what Evernote gives you free, and the interface is absolutely amazing*. NOTE: Amazing if ...

You might want to take a look at Google Notebook and Google Tasks Help (in Gmail).

There is a free, web-based version of OneNote (and Word, Excel, PowerPoint FWIW) at http://office.live.com If you've got a copy of Office (or your school uses Office) you can easily switch between the two. While you don't get quite the full MS Office experience, I've found that its quite capable.

Tagging - this isn't a standard function in Google Docs, I think the closest you can come is setting up folders. searching through the documents is pretty easy (as you'd expect from Google!) Clipping - Can't be done natively, I think I read about an app someone had produced that would do this, but I never tried it. Email - I think this used to happen, but ...

http://taskless.appspot.com/ has the interface you are looking for, tagging, and stores all of your data in the cloud. http://stickr.com/ is good for taking notes on webpages and seems to be more social-networking oriented. If you are looking for a more study-oriented way to figuring things out, lifehacker lists several index study card webapps.

That happened to me too. It also happens the other way sometimes (like it says you have 2 notes, but really you have 8). The number it shows you is a glitch. The correct number is the number of notes you actually have (so count it, if you really want to know). But there's also been a glitch where it removes previous notes, so maybe the number being shown is ...

Open a private posterous space ? You can add, edit, search, it's password protected, free, and handles syntax highlighting for code snippets or just plain gist insertions.

If you use Google's Task List, you could add the message as a Task and add notes to that. "Add to Tasks" is under the "More" menu. It's then added to your tasks, with a convenient link to open the original email message. Then you can edit the task and add information to the "Notes" field.

Your question represents a longstanding gripe among Evernote users, myself included. While they allow merging of notes, splitting them is not supported, and neither is the creation of separate pages within a single note. (The closest you could get might be uploading a multi-page pdf into a single note.) Apart from Note Taker for OS X, I can't think of any ...

I would try just using plain old microsoft word, and zoom out to a point where you can see both copies on the same screen. Then they can be printed on different sheets, and comments can be added as needed on microsoft word. If you need to use an online tool then there is google docs word, but then you can't see both at once.

After a bit of hunting, I found Trello. It's not strictly a note taking application, but it does everything I listed in the bullet points except for having a local install option. There'a an API available, and an export feature is being worked on, so I'm OK with that. It also allows you to sort notes into columns, which is nifty. Hopefully it doesn't fall ...

I've been looking for a Notefish replacement as well; something that will work in Chrome. The closest thing I've found so far is Corkboard ( http://corkboard.me/simple ). It's not as good as Notefish, but they are just starting out and open to suggestions.

This sounds like a job for Evernote. From their website: Put your thoughts, ideas, inspiration, and things to remember all in one place. Use Evernote for work, for play, and for everything that’s noteworthy. Here are a few suggestions: Snap a photo of a business card with your phone, and have an easy way to store and access contacts. ...

From Digital Inspiration the last question is: Q. Can I use Google Docs like Microsoft OneNote for taking notes and saving web clippings? A: Open a new Google Document in a separate browser tab and drag the clipping from another browser tab / window into this document. That’s it. Not sure if this works with Google Chrome.
