Iterasi is a social bookmarking site that lets you save the exact contents of a web page, like you can’t do using other options.
Unitl now, if I want to save a web page — let’s say page of where I’ve made an online payment on an e-commerce site — I can either take a screenshot, or save the URL of the page. Both options are somewhat problematic. Screenshots are images, and you can’t search the text within a screenshot. Links, meanwhile, often won’t take you back to the exact page you were on (the contents of www.venturebeat.com, for example, constantly change as we publish new stories).
To you use it, you sign up and install the Iterasi web browser toolbar (on Internet Explorer or Firefox). Then, when you’re on a page you want to save, click on the Iterasi “notarize” button in the toolbar — “notarize” is the company’s term for saving your page. Iterasi creates a reproduction of a page that it stores on its site. You can search the text of your saved pages on Iterasi, access JPEG or PNG images, live forms, transactions and receipts. You can also schedule automated captures of specific pages over a set period of time.
One can imagine the company making money from subscription services for heavy users, such as a fee for having thousands of saved web pages on your account.
The company, based in Vancouver, WA, will launch its service in the coming months. You can sign up here, in the meantime.
It has raised $1 million from angel investors.
