What are you using for your bookmarks these days?

Wondering what service/techniques folks are using to store/browse their bookmarks and resources these days.

    Pinboardall day. There's so many integrations and apps so I have my bookmarks anywhere.

      The $25/year fee for caching the every bookmark is worth it. The way it caches pages is better than Evernote, and it doesn't bog down my Evernote library with tons of heavy notes.

      Yes, this. Besides, it's just so simple, no flashy crap, no lag. Well worth the sign up fee and I also agree that the bookmark snapshotting priced at $25 per annum is worth it too. Very useful.

    Bookmark Manager from Chrome. It's awesome.

      I really want to use Stache, but it's locked to the Apple ecosystem. My primary computer is a MacBook Pro, but as a designer + developer, I use all kinds of different devices. I have a Surface Pro 3, a linux netbook, my primary phone is an Android... And my primary browser on all of these is Firefox. Stache doesn't appear to work with anything outside of iOS, Chrome and Safari*.

      So I opt for Pocket instead because it's truly platform agnostic.

      edit: just found a Firefox extension, so that's encouraging.

    Hey Brandon! You might like our app, Stache for Mac & iOS — http://getstache.com

    Stache makes it quick and easy to collect and re-discover pages you find useful, interesting or inspiring, in a beautiful, visual and fully searchable library.

    Stache for Mac stores full page-screenshots and web archives so you'll always have the page design and content to reference. Both the Mac and iOS are capable of full-page content search making it easy to find pages in the future, even with a vague search term.

    Happy to answer any questions!

      +1 for Stache. Love it.

      I only wish I could set the tags and which category within the Chrome extension upon adding :)

      How's optimization now days? I have over 1400 bookmarks (yes, it's a ridiculous amount), and Stache didn't know what to do once it reached 600 bookmarks the last time I used it.

      Hey Oliver,

      Stache is $4.99 on the mac app store with 2 stars

      Stache is $0.99 on the ios app store with 2 stars.

      Stache is the chrome store with 3 stars.

      what's going on ?

      why we paying ? and why are people not liking this ?

        Hey Jonathan - iCloud has caused us some problems with sync, all which can be resolved by following our troubleshooting steps and running the latest version of iOS. Unfortunately people take to reviews rather than contacting us to help them. Also there were some bugs in the early days causing processing issues which have now been resolved.

    I'm using https://raindrop.io to quickly grab URLs and if I find any collected sites really useful that I know I will revisit regularly, I put them in the default safari bookmark.

        Yeah, as a Firefox user I was pretty displeased about that, and bookmark export is giving me an internal server error, so guess those are gone.

        Back to Kippt for me. :(

      I love Dragdis, and still use it. But they've seemed to be a bit wishy-washy on what they're building recently – supposedly building it from scratch again which is quite worrisome as a user of it.

      The drag-drop functionality is invaluable, but the grid layout could use some more options for sorting/organization.

    Although I've tried lots of services before, I now just use Safari's bookmarks (synced between Mac and iOS), and the native Reading List.

    I like that I can close tabs on my other devices while using a different device (in Safari).

      Wait, you can close tabs on other devices? How?

        I believe you need to be running iOS 8 and Yosemite.

        If you're on a Mac, just go to the tabs overview (zoom out on a page while already fully zoomed out) and you'll see a list of the tabs open on other devices at the bottom. Hover and tap the × to close it.

        If you're on an iOS device, go to the tabs overview as normal, scroll to the bottom and you'll see a similar list of tabs open on other devices. Swipe on one of the items and a "Delete" button will appear.

        I hope that helps :) It's rather fun to watch a tab disappear when you close it on another device!

      Same here, for now. It's performant and always works. Really enjoy the suggested tags. Though, I'm still trying to find something better, preferably with visuals snaps of the content I bookmark. Raindrop seems close.

        Leave it.

        If I need to remember I think deeply and search on Google for associated keywords. Most times I wasn't able to find anything in my book marking tools anyway because of the noise. I had 1000+ bookmarks.

          I'm yourself in the past, with 1000's of bookmarks. I'm still trying to manage them because most times my thoughtmaker can't rummage that deep to find the keywords of that one link I know I visited two weeks ago that will change the course of my life if I find it.

            Export to HTML and remove all the bookmarking tools and bookmarks from your browser.

            It's like email, inbox zero. Only this time you decide 100% what's in your inbox and what's not. I keep mine at zero. ;)

    I used Pocket. I reached 5,000 bookmarks in 3 years and I've only checked 200 out of them. So I stopped bookmarking and keep the tab open and force myself to read it at the end of the week.

    I use bookmark folders in Chrome (synced to all devices) to manage my go-to's and then save everything else to Pocket (http://getpocket.com/). It's not a perfect system but it's been working well for me.

    Chrome bookmarks + Dragdis for things like "Wish list" and useful plugins I want to re-visit later. I've looked at other services for bookmarking but no one has really figured it out yet.

    Another vote for vanilla Safari bookmarks and syncing between devices. Used Readability and Instapaper, but the essential thing is that I simply don't need an "interface" for bookmarks. I just need access to find, save and do minimal organizing, and it's built right into the browser.

    Then with Quicksilver (or Alfred or other similar utility), I can access those bookmarks no matter what application I have open.

    Kippt has been great for me this year. There's an iPhone tool you can buy too that'll let you keep tabs on your links too and there are multiple lists you can share. My biggun is wanting to share what I link in an easy way for people who might not be as savvy and it's been nice for that.

    Also using Pocket, though not as much of late.

    Instapaper. Because it now lets me also highlight text; I'm a big fan of highlighting. That way I remember why I bookmarked the article.

    I just bookmark the URL and archive it.

    Pocket for anything interesting that I don't have time to read. It integrates well with Chrome and iOS 8, so it's a breeze to use.

    As for tech resources, I usually just bookmark it in Chrome, and that syncs with all my computers and my phone.

    I use Stache to archive design resources, code snippets, and anything worth preserving. The full-page archive is invaluable to me.

    Before anything gets "stached", it usually sits in my Instapaper queue for about a week. Gotta read it first before its permanently saved :)

    Links I visit everyday are saved to my Favorite Bookmarks in Safari.

    Hello everyone.

    We're a small team based out of Sydney Australia. We have a bookmark-related project that we'll be launching very soon!. The project is called Marvelogs.

    Our need was that we bookmark different things in different places (e.g. videos on YouTube, photos on Instagram etc), so we wanted to create a tool that keeps them in a single place.

    It's just a sign-up page, but we'd love to hear your feedback + thoughts.

    Im using Readability to bookmark articles and websites. When I see a page I want to remember it is only a keyboard shortcut away from being sent to readability. There is search, archiving, and staring and for the most part it works for me.

    Fully aware that this will likely be buried, but my co-founder and I are building a next generation bookmarking application called Linkship. It's designed with organization and ease of access to information in mind. We're all about saving people as much time as humanly possible.

    It's Chrome only at the moment, but we'll be bringing it to Firefox and Safari as well soon.

    If anyone would like to give it a shot you can contact me at kyle AT getlinkship DOT com

    Love the premise. They recently went open source on Assembly which I think makes the barrier of entry a tad more difficult but really into the idea behind it.
