I'm a huge fan of Refind (here's an invite). It integrates with Google search, so I can find my bookmarks right inline, it supports tagging and collections, a "Read It Later" feature like Pocket, and a New Tab extension that recommends new links to view based on links I've saved to my profile.
I use Keep It on mobile and as a Mac app.
It works pretty well. I use Safari on mobile so with the little share extension it adds, I can easily add bookmarks from my mobile web browsing. It’s all backed up to iCloud and syncs well across my Apple devices. It also lets me add tags to each bookmark, letting me search and filter through tons of bookmarks quite effortlessly.
I’d love a good bookmarking tool. My bookmarks are mostly from the early 10s.
I’m a big fan of Pocket and think there is an opportunity to do something similar with bookmarks.
I bought a lifetime deal for Qlearly, and I have really enjoyed using it so far. You can create various boards and then multiple lists on each board. It's very Trello-like.
I'd like to see a notebook function in GSuite. Google Keep had big promises but it is a letdown. My need for bookmarks is always framed by time and the project I'm working on. Saving bookmarks in Chrome is messy.
Mine are all done in Chrome, sync across all devices.
Its a pain though having to manually clean them up ...
I use the Bookmarks toolbar in Chrome for all my shortcuts - so I have access to pages at a single click. But beyond that I don't have favorites.
I thought that is what Google was for?
Goold old Firefox! It syncs between all my devices and it's easy to keep them organized.
I use browser (in Safari) for my most frequently visited sites—and the browser bar for bookmarklets (though I don't use them as much as I used to).
Then, for years I saved longer websites (longform reading, recipes, reference stuff) to Evernote with the Evernote Clipper, then used Pinboard and Apple Notes for that for a bit, and now sometimes use Notion. Often though I'll just save articles to Instapaper to read later and trust I can find them through Instapaper's search if I want them again. I'm bad about saving links, figuring I can just re-find stuff via Google again later, which is a bad habit so I should get back into bookmarking.
I've been a Pocket user for years and I'm very satisfied. The fact that it was acquired by Firefox means a lot to me. It's pretty rare to see nice SaaS being merged with other organizations than GAFA. Anyway, Pocket allows me to read my content offline which is the main reason I use it. However, I would love to be able to create groups/categories of links I could publicly or privately share.
Also, nowadays, saving links is a no-brainer. However, to my eyes, finding them when you need them most is the next step.
Let's take this simple use case: I've saved a link about how to write cold emails with the tag "Cold email" in Pocket. In the future, if I'm looking for tips about how to write cold emails in my search engine I would like Pocket to notify me about links I've saved contained keywords contained in my research.
I use Google bookmarks, but project-specific, adding them to Notion lately as well
I'm in the Apple ecosystem, so I pretty much just rely upon Safari.
For stuff I want to utilize multiple times, like a color generator, I created a few main category folders and then a ton of subcategories using folders for bookmarks.
If it's just an article I want to read later, I throw it onto the reading list in Safari.
Been using gettoby.com for the last couple of days and really enjoying it! they have some good assortment of keyboard shortcuts for mac as well!
I am still "in love" with bookmarks. I bookmark websites in Google Chrome and have it basically "connected" with a Word Document. So for every bookmark created their is an entry automatically created in a table in word, that has the Link, "Name" of the page and date. I always wanted to change the workflow to a private website, that basically replaces the Word Document in this workflow, but the editing is way faster and easier in word, as you have all formatting tools. I would always recommend at least three sorting structures of bookmarks: 1. By content 2. By date 3. By Favourites.
I was an old fan of delicio.us a long time ago and I have never found any bookmarking tool with all the features that I wanted. And trust me I tested almost all (Pocket, toby, raindrop, diigo ...)
However I found two years ago one of my favorites bookmarking tool called Bookmark OS and I stuck with it. I'm using Bookmark OS almost every day and I really love it.
Hope it helps!
I just use Chrome, it gets the job done. Autosuggest in the address bar in Chrome solves many of my old bookmarking needs.
I use the basic bookmarks in Chrome for mundane things like links to searches in BitBucket's issue tracker. But the real bookmarking tool I use is Evernote's Web Clipper. That actually keeps me using Chrome as my primary browser. I have over 45K notes in Evernote of which around 38K are clipped.
Evernote gets some criticism but there are easy things you can do within it to make a smarter product. I use saved searches a lot but also heavy use of home pages around a topic, that link many clipped pages together. I also use casual linking to clipped notes in my own writing in Evernote, which gives me a contextual bookmark as I write which I can be confident is not going away.
I've been using pinboard.in to save my bookmarks for a decade now. I like that it's a small, independent business that isn't going to disappear like del.icio.us did. For articles I plan to read later, I'll save the link in OmniFocus or Instapaper. Articles I need to read go to OF and articles I'd like to read–but likely won't get to–end up in Instapaper.
I’m also a fan of Raindrop, like the visual bookmarks and being able to access them from any device/browser.
If I find something interesting that I might have use for later, I’ll add it to Raindrop.
If I find something interesting that I think I should be using I sign up for an account. Pretty much everything has drip marketing, so they’re going to remind me to use it.
I learned about Toby for Chrome (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/toby-for-chrome/hddnkoipeenegfoeaoibdmnaalmgkpip?hl=en). Has anyone tried it?
I save bookmarks right in Chrome. Thanks to the Humble New Tab Page extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/humble-new-tab-page/mfgdmpfihlmdekaclngibpjhdebndhdj I can see all the bookmarks when I open a new tab.
I have been using qlearly which nicely imported my Chrome bookmarks to use as a start page. Easy to organize and replaces the scrolling from using the Toolbar Chrome bookmarks.
Markdown is the most popular way to format plain text. Add common characters like asterisks and dashes to text, much like how you might format a quick store list in your notes app or add emphasis ...
