Some people use their blog as a personal diary, and don’t mind other people reading what they're up to. For others, personal diaries are still something private that should be kept secret.

If you're among the latter of these groups, you're going to like Efficient Diary. With this app you can have your personal diary right on your computer, but at the same time keep it away from prying eyes thanks to its password protection.

Efficient Diary features a traditional interface design, with a folder structure on the left side to browse entries, and the right side reserved to display selected entries. It also has a rich-text editor to write your diary, which means you can apply text effects (bold, italics, colors) and insert images. However the editor fails to recognize web and email addresses like other similar tools do, and only accepts multimedia files as attachments.

With Efficient Diary you can organize your entries according to their data and also in customizable groups. The program features also a backup/restore utility with which you can easily create backup copies of your diary.

If you'd like to have a personal diary on your computer, this is the program you need.
