Furl: A web page filing cabinet
January 26, 2004 5:51 AM   Subscribe

Furl is an elegant application that acts as your web filing cabinet. Store, rate and categorize web clippings with the click of a bookmarklet. Once collected, search, share or publish your links via email or RSS. (via Inter-Alia.)

I used to use a service like this one but it went bust after about a year. And there went an awful lot of carefully collected links. Dunno that I want to risk repeating that experience.

Also check out del.icio.us. Kind of a collaborative bookmark project.

If you can publish as rss, you won't lose your links if the service fails.

I'm ignorant of rss, but I'll try to educate myself.

Must your links be public?

Blatant self link: FarFetch is the same sort of thing, but bookmarks are private, and you don't have to install anything, you just have to drag a bookmarklet to your toolbar (or not).

Is there anything like Furl that you can run on your own server?

Probably nothing, as long as you only use one computer and have no interest in sharing your bookmarks.

B. is an awesome app if you have your own server to run it on.

Before you start dumping all your favorite links and their associated content into Furl, you might want to read the Terms of Service and their Privacy Policy.

Actually, I'll save you the step. Both are "Coming soon!"

(Insert dire scenarios re. your information here.)
