If you've ever spent time searching for a half-remembered web page, email or other document, then a software-based solution is available now.

Onlife Public beta 5 is available now. It's a Mac OS X application that keeps track of user activity in Safari, Mail and iChat. It keeps an eye on what you do - tracking visited web pages, for example. It records the information in an indexed and searchable list, so it's easy to track down an information asset at a later point.

The beta software is available now for free download for beta-testing purposes.

"Originally the plan was to release four betas and then shoot for a 1.0 release, but thanks to user feedback, we have uncovered a few more things we would like to address", said Edison Thomaz, the Onlife project lead. "This is a stabilisation release."
