When I have a new task/project, it is often required to research existing solutions on internet.
Usually I do a Google search, open a few links, quickly browse them and want to save urls for future references.
The simple and convenient way is in IE create favorites subfolder for the project and save URLs as favorite.
However it has two disadvantages- 1. Favorites are stored locally on the computer and not easily shared between home and office or with collegues/friends. 2. You can’t add extra notes for the link.
There is a web FURL
tool to create shared/private favorites, but UI is not user-friendly enough.
Update: I am using http://del.icio.us/mfreidge and it is acceptable, but not as simple as IE favorites and not as flexible , as your own document with links and free format comments.(See also similar link-sharing sites like DZone )
The best approach that I found is to create a Word document, copy and paste links that I consider interesting and add extra notes or group links as you wish.
I’ve noticed that Google recently added “Note this”(Notebook)
link to their search results, that looks quite good, but I didn’t use it yet.
