    • It is far and away lacking many features of onenote, most noticeably the ability to have sections and subsections of notes in binders. Making it not good for keeping ORGANIZED notes.

    • I tried it on my chromebook nad as a extension it does not allow to have more than one file, everything is in the same file. This may not be the case with another os but for the one I have this is not an alternative. That's not to say it is not good if that is what you're looking for, It does what it does well.
