Topiq is a knowledge management tool based on topic maps. It can be used as a desktop database with built-in entry forms for notes, books and media. Thanks to the topic map organisation you can order your entries into multiple hirarchies like projects, document types, categories etc. Spezial features are a language-independant fuzzy search and an automatic sort function based on word similarities. User Interfaces are available for Linux/KDE and the SHARP Zaurus SL5000. The current KDE version is spezialized on managing bookmarks. It imports and exports Netscape, Mozilla and KDE2 (XBEL) bookmark files and imports KDE1 bookmarks and Windows IE Favorites.
