y-notes is a simple system which allows you to specify spots in your web pages to which your website's visitors will be able to stick notes. For the the web user, y-notes provide a convenient way to add annotations to a web site without having to go into the messy business of managing a large set of bookmarks. Also, the notes are kept at the server so that users can retrieve them at a later time and use them as a navigation aid. For the site maintainer, y-notes provides an easy and automatic way of gathering user feedback and improving the site design. The main component of y-notes is a tiny Java(tm) applet. Notes are stored on database managed through a CGI interface written in Perl.Visit publisher site: y-notes

This is an excellent little sticky notes app that really is little. The java applet loads quickly in the slowest of slowest PCs (mine). The ability to place their own personal notes on a web site's pages will encourage users to return often. Setup of the files was very easy and presented no problems. I looked around for web-based sticky notes and found none until I saw this one, and since then I haven't felt an urge to look around for any others. This is definitely a nifty little app. And hey, it's free... you can't beat the price!
