Re-search Your Web History – Hooeey Webprint Launches A New Avatar

We profiled Hooeey longtime back and now Hooeey is available in a new avatar with robust search, multiple filtering methods, easy navigation and faster upload to cloud services. Hooeey claims to have over 1.5Mn downloads till date.

Hooeey Webprint is a desktop application that captures your web browsing history. Hooeey sits in the background to automatically capture screenshot and text of the pages you are visiting, in real time. Once captured the content can later be searched, tagged, shared or uploaded on Google Docs or Amazon S3.

Hooeey is like an automated bookmarking service, though storing every trivial browsing history makes its search tedious and also ends up using a lot disk space. Current version works as a plugin for IE and Firefox. Though, Chrome already has a native full text search for web history but doesn’t help offline. The browsing data on Hooeey is still available once you clear your browser history, not sure if it’s for the good or bad.

Hooeey also offers a cloud storage service at $5/month for 1GB space. A collaboration tool for work groups is also launching soon.

Do give Hooeey Webprint a spin and let us know if it is useful.
