For anyone who does a lot of work of any kind on the web, it becomes apparent quickly that saving useful references can become cumbersome. For years, when I used Firefox, I used its built-in function for link saving, with 1000s of links organized by folders. At some point, either when using someone else’s computer or during cross-browser testing, I realized that I needed a solution “in the cloud.”
I considered a number options, but the solutions I actually tested included Google Bookmarks, Delicious, and ZooTool. I found Google Bookmarks inelegant and not particularly enjoyable to use. ZooTool was a little too UI heavy, and didn’t seem best for someone who saves lots of bookmarks every day. Delicious has a nice, clean interface (though it’s now a little more heavy on the UI), but its dev team was famously canned about a year ago, which created an exodus to the service which I now use, Pinboard.
