There are many bookmarking sites, I have tried many. Blinklist is impressive, so much so that I have begun using it as often as my built in browser bookmarks. The point of online bookmarking is to be able to access your bookmarks from anywhere, many provide this service, few do it well enough to make me want to use it.
The Blinklist user interface has been very well thought out. It feels more like a native desktop application than a browser based system. You can very easily import your current bookmarks, from your browser or other online bookmarking sites. Take a look at the pop up menu items within your browser, on the right.
Like most, they provide a browser button to save web pages with one click. An interesting feature, is the ability to share links with only those individuals you choose. Much like you create a meeting within Google calendar and invite two others, you can do the same with bookmarks – individual or entire lists/folders.
Another interesting feature is that once you start saving web pages, BlinkList will automatically start recommending web pages to you. They attempt to recommend relevant pages based on what you have already bookmarked. These are provided in a list, just click and review. Over time their recommendations should be more relevant to you.
I write about Blinklist only because I feel it fits two criteria, the two that make me use it:
- 1. it is easy to use, more so than my browser bookmarks
- 2. it feels like a native desktop application with the same functionality
