    It cannot be used to highlight web pages. This is the main idea of Diigo.

    Totally free, works intuitively and gives me a bunch of other ways to organize and re-find articles and quotes that are useful to me.

    Because Memex annotation and search features are completely free for private use (as opposed to lifetime 100 in Diigo). Also, the annotations have a much better UX than Diigo. No other Annotation tool exists that allows users to create unlimited free annotations, and protects their privacy through offline-first approaches.

    Tagpacker vs Diigo opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    As a librarian and former cataloguer, I have to say that it's the best available free tool of all listed here. Container Tags (called feature) is an interesting mix of hierarchical classification and facet classification. Even if hard core user might wish it allows for more classification, it's certainly seems capable enough, and a far more preferable alternative than to create your own SQL database.

    Tagpacker is totally free, and provides a cleaner interface than Diigo for presenting bookmarks. I like it because it automatically grabs an image found in the page we bookmark, and when it fails, we can provide a link toward an image. There's also a feature that suggest tags, and autocomplete tags.

    Hypothes.is vs Diigo opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Hypothes.is is a great alternative to Diigo.

    It is an open source software for highlighing, commenting and discussion. All the annotations can be freely shared. This comes in handy when reading research articles online. Diigo's highlight feature is good but is limited in number in the free version
