Clipmarks is a useful website where you can conveniently store anything you want as you browse web. It let’s you clip(means ‘save’) complete webpages, partial items from the webpage(images, sentences, paragraphs or whatever you want) and even bites from several webpages in one note(aka clip). For instance, you can create a clip with your favorite site logos, or a clip with you favorite jokes as you browse joke site.
To start clipping you need to install clipmarks browser plugin(available for firefox, flock and IE), if all goes right you should see following icons on your browser toolbar
To get an idea how system works I recommend checking out demo on How To Create Clips. It may take little time to get used to it, but if you like the idea it’s totally worth it. After you start clipping you can view all your clips in your clipmarks account. There are some cool features available within the account; you can print clips, email them to friends, save them to your PC and much more. Your account is also a doorway to a social community of clippers, and there are many of them out there.
What I love most about Clipmarks
I am not an active clipper but I am definitely an active clipmarks user. I visit clipmarks whenever I need some inspiration for an article or simply want to read some really interesting stuff. You see whenever someone clips something, there is an option to make it either private or public, if it’s made public then every member can view, comment and even give it a POP(something like + or Thumbs Up). Clips that receive most POPs are featured on the clipmarks.com and can be accessed from ‘Top Clips’ link. Most of the stuff that makes to top list is quite interesting, check out top clips for the month, week or today. There is also an option to browse top clips or recently POPed clips by category (ex. humor, entertainment, technology, religion….. ). And by the way there are RSS feeds for everything, so whether you want top clips of the month or most recently POPed entertainment clips you can get them right to your feedreader(what’s feedreader?).
It’s a cool site check it out.
