EndNote vs EndNote Web - what's the difference?

You may be already using Endnote, but did you know that there are two different versions of EndNote? EndNote and EndNote Web. EndNote is an application that runs on your computer. EndNote Web is web-based and it's FREE. Both versions do many of the same things (save citations, create bibliographies automatically in Microsoft Word, etc) but have some differences.
