What is your favorite app/plugin to save and organize sites/links in your web browser?

I'm currently using Bookmark OS in Chrome but I find it quite ugly. I need something to save a lot of articles and sites for later brainstorming. Any helpfull sugestions?

    I've been using Pocket since 2011 across all my devices and browsers - Google Chrome on my desktop, Android phone, and Android tablet, Kindle Fire and more recently on my iPhone as well. The sync is maintained beautifully across devices. Love the one click to save and recommend features.

    Big fan of Instapaper! I save any interesting articles and links to Instapaper. Now with all the premium features available for free, it's a great way for anyone to organize and search through all of your saved links. I often use the Chrome extension to quickly save links and stories I stumble upon and use the mobile app to read stuff I've saved for later. Also the minimalist design is a plus.

    All in one bookmark manager become even better

    Thomas LeitermannProduct Manager, inovex · Written
    Found this on PH and really like it!! Super easy integration in all well-known browser, automatic sync between all devices, lists to share with others, quick dev team - really can't say anything bad! Currently I'm on the free plan and absolutely fine with it, although I'm eying premium for the nested-folder option - but its working out nicely even without.

      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.

      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.

    OneTab

    Save 95% memory by converting all your open tabs into a list

    Scott RosenblumPresident/Founder, LEVEL PR · Written
    I was tipped off about OneTab many years ago and I have been an ardent user ever since. Not only does it save memory in the browser (er..um..ahem...Chrome!), but it is a neat way to save open tabs for later, organized initally by the date and time you saved it. Plus, you can also go into one tab and move various saved pages around, in case you want to customize/group as you see fit. Nice option for links that you might need again in the near future, but not worth preserving for a later date in Pocket.

    OneTab is great especially if you sometimes need a bunch of sites open for a project and switch projects. You can have tab groups that you open together or organize. It is now a pinned tab for me that keeps everything organized for quick access.

      I wish that I could create groups of tabs. If I have a group of tabs that are all related to one subject, I want to group them together within the onetab list.

      I used is for well over 1y and it's OneTab that I always keep opened. Whenever I let loose browsing and I know I have to get back to my focus - right click and move to one-tab for later. Thanks OT team for making this amazing tool.

      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.

    Evernote

    Note taking gets even simpler

    Andreas DuessCCO, Nourish Food Marketing · Written
    Evernote might be a piece of bloatware, but as a web content saving machine, it has no equal. I specifically like the ability of the web clipper to remove all superfluous content, like sidebars and ads, even going as far as just saving the text and images. I also like that it creates a local copy, so if a page goes offline, the content is still saved.

    Evernote is great for clipping articles, tagging them, and finding them. The best part is the actual clipping portion which can pull stuff in different formats (simplified "reader" mode, or full page, etc). Very effective and useful

      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!

      Evernote is a platform that allows you to organize, store, share and then search your information. Evernote impacts a business's productivity by streamlining the collection and distribution of critical information by enhancing its retrieval. Evernote's gives your business enhanced control of the information you own or information already collected by your employees. It's your business. It's your information.

    IF you tightly organize your browser surfing sessions tab-for-tab THEN I suggest @session_buddy... By simply right-clicking on any page in Chrome you can save your current browser session.. @session_buddy saves the current entire set of tabs making them easily exportable and retrievable using TEXT, CSV, MARKDOWN, HTML, or JSON formatting. As your brainstorming continues you can simply open the session you previously left off with and continue finding new web resources, then export this new session and remove the previous one. If you don't care about exporting your session and sharing or working with it's contents later, and just want simple links with tags then use @Pocket; It offers a tagging system to just tag your links as you save them. I prefer exporting the session.. it removes dependency on an app for managing links and gives you the raw links as a set that can be sent to Cloud, Local Directory, or even Physical External Drive if you need. I find myself sharing exported JSON format sessions with others often. Also, if they don' t have Pocket then it's more difficult to get your session to them. Assuming you're doing research that requires others, I would choose @session_buddy.. otherwise if it's just all personal links that only you will need, use Pocket.

    Papaly

    Personalized social bookmarking manager

    Reasons: Drag and drop. You can make multiple boards and columns. It even has the option of following other people's public boards when they add bookmarks (e.g. entrepreneur, web design tools etc.) I personally make this my first pinned tab when opening my web browser to gain access to my most frequently opened websites such as Gmail, Trello, Twitter etc.

      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.

    Dropmark

    All your stuff in one simple, visual, private place.

    Juan VaamondeSenior UI/UX designer at Channel 7 · Written
    Over the last decade I've tried many apps to organise my bookmarks, due to needing to save new links almost daily for design and tech, articles, work stuff, inspiration, project stuff, etc. I've tried using the native bookmark feature across Shrome and Safari, Pinterest with its lack of customisation, the clipping sites via the note focused Evernote and pocket adding pages via the non-syncing Inboard, and the late Ember App, but nothing truly satisfied my desire to have one place to organise all links, for many topics, be searchable, be shareble, and have customisable tile views. Dropmark does all those things. Only thing left is for them to complete their iOS app which is perpetually in development, but their chrome extension is perfect.

    I found this bookmarklet via PH. It does exactly what it says on the tin. The best thing about EmailThis is that it helps me turn my email inbox into a todo/to-read list. I use it to save bookmarks/links that I need to read in the near future and I use Pocket to basically save everything that I might need someday.

    • Enjoy this better than any of the "send email link" extensions. A funny side effect is that it has cut down on how many articles I share with friends as the email must come to me first before I forward it. This gives me a "cooling off" period to rethink who I am going to share the article with, rather than impulsively sharing articles I have merely skimmed before forwarding on :).

    Pocket, Trello, Inbox and Pinterest are all good, but Diigo is definitely the best. The highlighting and commenting is great. It comes with a reader function. And then you can read, compose, and organize in the web app itself. As a writer, it's one of my most important tools.

      If you're a minimalistic approach lover then you should definitely check Wunderlist. It's doesn't eat much resources if you keep it open all the time. Lists of tasks, starring tasks is the best simple and productive way of tasks' prioritization. It also has a great feature of adding a task or searching for a task without going to the main window. Just use a keyboard shortcut for this.

    • Alex PasternakLead Software Developer, Kronos

      I've tried this app many times, but really fail to see what people see in it. It fails my basic use cases of even a grocery list, where I need to complete an item, have it hidden, then uncomplete it when it's needed again, easily.

      But then again, Todoist also fails this. Perhaps these are great for one-time use and throw away items. I use AnyList, and would otherwise use Paperless on iOS (or now Ikiru) before either of those.
