    wallabag vs Instapaper opinions
    Most users think wallabag is a great alternative to Instapaper.

    Self-hosted, Open Source -- data is owned by users. It can import data from Pocket and others and can export (download) content in several different formats. I especially like the sense of total control with no risk of the service just disappearing.
