I wish there was a dedicated comparison tool for two-pane outliners/PIMs only, just like there is for wikis, such as the WikiMatrix (http://www.wikimatrix.org/). The more two-pane PIMs I see, the more they merge into an undifferentiated mass in my mind.

The only ones that seem to click with me are the ones that offer some specialist uses, such as Scrivener for outlining and writing or Surfulater for webpage capture.

But seeing the proliferation of two-pane outliners, notes organisers and PIM which on the surface seem barely distinguishable, I feel I must be missing something… I guess I’m after a resource that could categorise the 2-pane PIM out there on the basis of some essential distinguishing features.

This problem doesn’t seem to exist for single-pane outliners, as there are so few.
