If you bookmark lots of websites, then at some point you’ve fruitlessly searched for a specific page that you bookmarked years ago with your browser. Not fun.
Diigo is a bookmarking tool that lets you build a searchable archive of websites that interest you.
Like Delicious, there’s a social-media component to Diigo. You set up a profile, follow people, set up groups, and view popular Web pages. And just like Delicious, when you bookmark a page, you add tags.
But Diigo makes it a little easier to find those bookmarked pages. It saves a cache version of the page, so you can do a keyword search of the actual text. That’s important if you forget how you tagged a certain page, but remember some key phrases. You can also highlight the particular sentences on a Web page that you find interesting.
What this all means is if you want to find a Web page you bookmarked years ago, you can find it by typing words or phrases you read on the page. Diigo will remember it for you. That’s certainly better than a frustrating search of the dusty old bookmark folders in your Web browser.
