- Been using Raindrop for years after Delicious was spoilt. And still it never let me down, I always recommend it to edit, organise and manage large collections of bookmarks.
I used to use Stache for my bookmarks before d3i abandoned the product (despite being paid). Stache was amazing for a couple reasons: when you bookmarked a webpage they captured the HTML and a really good full-page screenshot. They used the HTML to search and to render a preview of the page later if you were offline, and the screenshot was used for a thumbnail and to let you view the page as it was when you captured it, even if it changed or died since then. Alas, syncing broke in Stache a couple years ago and I switched over to Raindrop.
Raindrop initially had new features coming out frequently. It seemed like they were going to grow fast and start charging money once they had a healthy user base in order to hire on additional people. They did grow fast, but I think the single developer lost interest in developing it so the product stagnated and a traditional support channel never materialized. They did add a paid subscription, but with a modest additional featureset.
Most unfortunately, Raindrop has failed to figure out how to properly capture and resurface bookmarked pages. Thumbnails are often a small icon from the page blown up into pixelated oblivion and then cropped square. There is a feature to capture a screenshot of a page, but there's zero UI feedback once you opt into it on a given bookmark and it frequently doesn't work. Search is even worse: results are sorted by recency, there isn't an option to use relevancy, and Raindrop doesn't capture page content so only the page title and description are searched. Tags aren't even searched unless you specifically add the hash symbol, making the benefits of tagging limited.
I'm sure something else will come along and replace Raindrop for me eventually, but for now, I'll continue amassing useful links in an utterly unsearchable form in hopes that they'll suddenly become useful one day.
I've used this pretty much since it first launched and I really love this app, I use it frequently throughout my day on all my devices. I love that I am able to have various collections, customize them and just really keep my bookmarks synced across devices. It's a handy and very useful app, I highly recommend it.
- Pinboard is about as close as you'll get to Delicious for long term bookmarking. Pins are sorted via tags, can be marked to read later, and can be set to public/private. There's great 3rd party developer app support too - my recommendation is Pinner for iOS.Only one where you have to pay to use, so there's high chance that it won't be turned off anytime soon. Great apps, really fast web service, IFTTT support, wonderful blue icon. If you want to save something to read and forget about it for the rest of your live, that's the service you won't regret.
If you like stuff that works and works well you'll love this
The interface is fairly spartan; I suspect this is the first time this developer has had to design their own product. There aren't any bookmark thumbnails or colors. Your bookmarks page is just a list of several hundred mostly-identical items, and they don't have real search, just “filters”, so you aren't going to get relevancy ranking, which is a bummer because it's built into tools like Postgresql. Yet another bookmarking tool that focuses too much on the bookmarking experience and not enough on resurfacing and utilizing those bookmarks later.

- Bookmarking everything with Keep. Super simple with chrome extension. Everything is in the cloud, you can make keeps public/private or share with friends by adding collaborators. Revoke access when needed. Also, there are apps for Google keep for mobile/tab access.
Downloaded. Couldn't even try it stopped by request to register account. If every minor Chrome extension would require registration for usage, it would be nightmare. There are OneTab that does similar job very good with no need to provide an email.
This one looks like hustling to get your contacts and spam you.
Downloaded the product, looks great and perfect for a big problem I have had for years with bookmarks and then later realized that my brownser home page had change to toby?!?! what?? not cool. If you will change a setting in my browser you HAVE to let me know, and if you did let me know then it was not clear AT ALL.
- Great to organise your bookmarks by tags. And also great to discover great new content. Though it still only allows to sign up if you are recommended by an already user. I can send free invitations for anyone who wants to register, just send me a tweet @yakinbozek and I will invite you back.
I've been using Refind for a week or so and I have read so many good articles. The quality of the posts Refind finds is amazing.
Sometimes the amount of good links results in lower productivity :/ I'm working on this.
Kudos on the makers, this is a very useful tool.
Amazing app, keeps getting better. Superb design aesthetics, works in every browser. I miss a dedicated iphone/android app for refind.
Love this tool. I've sent numerous tickets to support that go unanswered. I've added suggestions to the forums. I am not the only one. Some others experiencing this slow down have gave up waiting for a fix. As I have. Finally making the move after a year. It saddens me.
I used Papaly. It was very good web app, actually still very good. But Papaly has not updated for a long time, and no recent sharing their social accounts. Probably, developer team burned the project.
- Drikerf made this productI've been looking for a good bookmarking tool for a quite some time. I've realized that a good visual impression is important for me to get an overview of my bookmarks. Klart allows me to save bookmarks together with a full resolution screenshot, tags and notes and this suits me perfectly. It's also good for collaboration since you can create collections for teams. Disclaimer: I made it 😊
Absolutely love Evernote. Use it for work and personal use and that is easy with the ability to make notebooks. Tags are super helpful as is annotating a document or editing a picture with Skitch. Makes my life easier and more organized!

I've enjoyed every aspect of this product, even at its early stages. I've used this to create quick layouts of my blog posts and will use Additor for my studies. I'll keep thinking of the pros and cons. (Phoenixfirelotus / ElegantAdventure)
I really like Additor.io, because it is perfect, it's the best way to keep looking for new boowmarks or other links and keep in order & orgazined.
