    Diigo vs Liner opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments
    xxxxx

    the sad thing: development is stalled, there is still support but no new features for years. the good thing: even though development is stalled, this is still the best bookmarker/annotation tool/highlighter on the market. it just works great. better than hypothesis or memex (diigo is just faster, and the highlights presentation is better more compact. liner's highlights are somewhat similar). can save webpages, images, pdfs, import kindle highlights, works great with ifttt.
