One of the problems with being a long-time member of the internet community is the stack of browser bookmarks which have grown out of control. Seriously. I have some bookmarks in Safari from the mid-1990s, pointing at sites which no longer exist. It isn’t that managing bookmarks in Safari is painful (it is), but it’s also time consuming and tedious, so through the years I’ve tried a variety of bookmark managers, including my latest, Momiji.
For Mac users with a convoluted mess of bookmarks, Momiji brings simplicity back to the forefront of browser bookmarks with a handful of automated processes to create and store bookmarks.
For example, Momiji has an auto-fill function for titles and keywords, which makes searching through a massive list of bookmarks much easier.
Fans of skeumorphism will love Momiji.
When capturing a bookmark Momiji automatically discovers certain page details– keywords, favicons, title, and a thumbnail snapshot.
If you have a few hundred bookmarks already Momiji can import those. Each bookmark has a place for notes and annotations, and it comes with browser extensions for Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. Bookmarks can be shared quickly using Twitter and Facebook.
Momiji’s website says you can ‘wave bye-bye to bookmark management.’ Well, you can’t. But you can automate some of the effort. For example, Momiji works with Pinboard bookmarks, works offline, and has an iPhone and iPad version to keep bookmarks synchronized between devices.
Therein lies my only gripe with Momiji. Sync between devices is handled via Wi-Fi or a local network. No Dropbox sync. No iCloud sync. Network sync works, but storing to Dropbox or iCloud to sync would be a great improvement.
