Mindmapping -- you either love it or hate it. In case you belong to the former camp, you might want to add MindMapIt to your productivity toolbox. This simple web app lets you create mindmaps on the fly without leaving the convenience of your favorite browser. Since MindMapIt is a mix of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, it requires no installation, and it will happily run in any browser. Clone the project's GitHub repository, open the index.html file in a browser, and you are good to go. Of course, you can also deploy MindMapIt on a web server if you prefer to access it via the web.

MindMapIt is not exactly overloaded with features, and it's stupidly simple in use. Write an outline in the left sidebar, and the application automatically generates a mindmap in the main pane. To save the mindmap as a PNG image, right-click on it and choose Save Image As. That's all there is to it. Obviously, MindMapIt is no match for full-featured mindmapping applications, but it can come in handy when you need to whip up a simple mindmap with a minimum of effort.
