What's the best solution to Bookmark organizer?

I'm looking for a tool that could do what the Xmarks (xmarks.com) do and make things easy to Share with others, like Delicious or Pinboard

    I store all my bookmarks on raindrop these days. It has all the functionality I need and looks great. It syncs across devices, and you can share folders with other people.

      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.

    Better Than Bookmarks

    Toby is a gamechanger for me - a new take on bookmarks. I tend to 'bookmark' something and it's lost forever. Toby essentially combines the functionality of bookmarks and tabs. Highly recommend!

      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.

  4. Xmarks it is a great tool, but is old, the interface is boring and don't have so much updates in the last years.
