Searchengine Watch alerted me to an interesting tool –
“Furl”:http://www.furl.net/ – which makes it easy to add URLs I run across to an online library, lets me sort them by topic, share them, and search the text on each of the pages. I don’t think it will displace my favourite bookmark tool, “Powermarks”:http://www.kaylon.com/power.html but if you can’t run a stand-alone application like Powermarks because your computer won’t let you run unapproved applications this could be just the thing for you. And because it is on the web in a central database it will enable all kinds of interesting group sharing and rating. Well worth taking a look at.
