We all like to surf the internet. Whether it’s looking for inspiration or checking some cool stuff we want to save it all for later. The worst case scenario is that we tend to forget what we saved for later. Another problem is that most bookmarking systems on browsers become messy and cluttered very quickly. This is where bookmarking tools shine.
These tools allow you to keep track of anything you find online, organize it and store it for you, being ready to access anytime and from any device with internet access.
Personally I’m using Safari bookmarks and they are enough for me. But until now I still don’t now why I’m using Safari, because it’s not the best browser. If you want to organise your work better check out some of the bookmarking tools I’ve found that you should know about. Hope you will find the right one here!
Dragdis is a free web app that makes collecting things nice and easy. It helps you to organize your resources as soon as you come across them thanks to an extremely simple sidebar.
