The presentation of the links is important, a quick summary follows each one and there is not a lot space used for tags, buttons and options. This works and it works well, so why fool around with it?
Diigo is why I have to fool around with it. It also offers a account of bookmarks online, complete with an embedded tool in Firefox, it’s just as easy to use as Spurl. But it also provides tools to highlight pages and even leave sticky notes on sites. I discovered Diigo a little more than a year ago and used it mostly to forward sites to other people, which can be done with just a click and an address. Diigo is mostly tag based, and when I imported the Spurl bookmarks into Diigo, it assigned tags based on the folder names. When I come across a good site now, I have to decide whether to add it to Spurl or Diigo. Although there is a Diigo option that will automatically throw a Diigo bookmark into Spurl, it will not land in the correct folder.
Several months back, Diigo added a “list” feature which could be used to create the same sort of unit page of bookmarks provided by Spurl. But the presentation is not the same.
All that space and you can only see one bookmark, there is no way to quickly scan and review fifty sites. There are no sharing option that provides just the name of the site and a short description. So as much as Diigo excels with some features, it fails in others. Not only that, those tags assigned during the import from Spurl are going to take some time to clean up. Is it worth the time? Should I use Diigo or Spurl?
