BRILLIANT! Indexes all visited websites and bookmarking with the sidebar is blazing fast. Just type "m" and then "t" to set tags or "m" and then "b" for staring. open-source, local-storage, many filters available, hotkeys … search for any word on every website you've visited, if you've seen it, you can find it!

  • pro-privacy; mostly free and open source.
  • keep track of your links by tagging, collections that you can share. very good highlighting and annotation functionality.
  • has UI/UX issues that slowly are getting corrected.
  • very noticeable performance issues for queries which they won't work on any time soon because now they're trying to better integrate with services like notion.
  • unstable

It is a good software, but they are changing the license of the project. The developers have been very very quite about the change in the license modifications:

I suggest being very cautious about your data as considering their $150 price tag, they might also start locking your data into their platform (they would not be the first project to do this). Use it, donate, but be cautious.

It's one of those "you gotta get used to it apps" vs having things right out there in the open even after clicking the icon. Maybe that's different after you sign up. I tried a shortcut key and apparently it conflicted with something else. I made an annotation, but didn't see an easy way to drag it onto the website.

It seems like a very worthy successor/alternative to Diigo ( <3 ). I'm anxious to try it out more. Looks great so far.
