So what if I'm not for the ever offended?


I need a bookmarking service that work across different devices and browsers.

However, after having googled and browsed around a bit it is obvious that there is an ocean of possibilities.
One thing I already know is that I'm not interested in any social features.

Right now I use a combination of browser-bookmarks, feedly-saves and facebook-bookmarks.

What do you use and why?

Remember, you are not a salmon

Chrome syncs them across every device I use, so I use that

I use pocket and am happy with that. They have a plugin for pretty much every device out there. I can pull up something I saved for later on my phone, you can tag entries for quick search. All in all it works well for me.

I switched to pinboard awhile ago and have been happy with it. I switched because I was tired of trying to keep my bookmarks synced/organized between chrome and safari.

I have about 500 bookmarks. I imported them all into pinboard and spent some time going through and tagging them with general topics like programming/school/recipes/software ect. Then I deleted all my bookmarks from my browser to force myself to use pinboard, except for a few sites I visit frequently I kept on the bookmark bar. It took some getting used to but I like it a lot better than my previous solutions of just using the browser and a million folders. The tagging system is really nice and makes it easier to find bookmarks on a topic, I've been using my bookmarks a lot more now because I can just search for a tag and older bookmarks that I forgot about pop up. It also integrates with pocket and RSS feeds.

It's $11/ year for an account but I think it's worth it. There are also iOS/android apps for it but I haven't tried any out yet.

If you decide to try it out I use a few of the bookmarklets from here: https://shawnblanc.net/2013/09/pinboard-guide/

e: there is a social feature where you can search other people's bookmarks by tag but it's optional. I have all my bookmarks set to private and never use that feature.

What's different from Pocket? Seems that Pocket can do the same thing.
