I’m Chanpory, and this is my site on how to live and work better as a designer.

diigo logoI’ve sung the praises of social bookmarking service Diigo in the past here at Lifeclever. It archives a full cache of every page in case the original goes down, lets you highlight and annotate Web pages, and it publishes your links to all the other social bookmarking sites automatically. What’s not to love?

Well, I guess some people are perfectionists, because the team at Diigo has just a launched new and improved version 3 in beta. I’ve been playing with it for a few weeks and, for my purposes, it offers a few nifty improvements. Tags are listed alphabetically by default, and the Diigo plugin for Firefox offers a “Twitter This” option which sends your link to Twitter as a tinyurl link.

The new Diigo also offers spiffy social networking/recommendation functionality, but that’s not my bag, although it may be yours. Either way, there’s really no reason anyone should use the Yahoo’s stagnant Del.icio.us service anymore. Diigo’s much prettier and it runs faster too! Go import your Del.icio.us bookmarks today.

    Is the captcha not showing up for anyone else on the signup page?

    too much bloat to stand between me and my links.

    … spiffy social networking/recommendation functionality, but that’s not my bag, … nor mine. Diigo is a superb personal research tool. (I am slowly getting the social aspect by occasionally browsing others tags and have been surprised by the results. )
