    "Chrome's bookmark system has many usability problems, the​ main one being that​ you need to click three times to save one link in a specific folder"

    It depends on how you organize your bookmarks bar, in my case, I just drag them to the specific folder (desktop, of course).

    Also: " They have already failed, becoming weird, accumulating useless features, prioritizing recommendations ​rather​ than helping ​users​ collect and save links." Not this one: http://www.pinboard.in. It´s an old model, boring page, but lighting fast, love it!

      But imagine you don't need to think about save a link, every time will remember some content that you read or GitHub repository you want to find again. Boom it's already there!

        It´s an interesting discussion. First there are some privacy issues, but let´s put that aside.

        Google already has something like this if you are a heavy user of their services and products. It´s a little burried in your settings. Here is the url: https://myactivity.google.com/myactivity.

        In this page you can search, browse, filter by product and range of dates of all your activities including navigation.

        I fully understand the concept and I think it´s useful in some situations. But I really prefer a more controled way of organizing my bookmarks.

        Both concepts can easily cohexists IMHO..
