According to a January 19 blog post by Patently-O blogger Dennis Crouch:
[This] free web-based software uses the EPO's INPADOC patent family database to group a list of patents into "families." This becomes quite helpful when looking at a portfolio of patents. Although the program runs on a web-browser, you will still need to download a small program to make it work.
This free product is available here.
