(Chrome) Bookmarks mirrored in Evernote

Recommended Posts

As a longstanding Librarian, I have amassed an enormous number of bookmarks that have followed me from one browser to the next (Netscape to Chrome).  As a diligent Evernote user/packrat/information manager, for nearly 5 years, I often wonder how I can make my bookmark collection more actionable through Evernote.

 

On the cloud front, once upon a time Delicious predated Evernote in this regard with respect to one's bookmarks, at least in terms of tagging.  Proprietorially, Microsoft Windows 7 (maybe XP/Vista before) allows free-text searches of one's "Favorites" provided they are in Internet Explorer (which I have moved on from) - brilliant, but limited.

 

Has anyone else pondered, or attempted to facilitate such a convergence with Evernote?  Is there a 3rd party program that accomplishes this?

I don't know if there is a 3rd party app that coordinates with Evernote or not. You might want to search through the app centre as per the below link:

My personal favourite is Diigo, a cloud based bookmarking service/research tool, that allows you to do so much more than merely saving a link. You might even be eligible for the free educator's upgrade. Below is a link to the Diigo's homepage and another about the free educator's upgrade:

I agree with Wordsgood - I've been juggling a growing number of bookmarks between different browsers (I used to use Firefox [Fx] and then found Chrome's clipper had better features so I moved to Chrome.  Now I'm back to Fx because it saves clips to my desktop rather than the web) and different machines - two laptops and a 'phone.  Keeping the bookmarks harmonised was becoming a major task.  I was looking to move the whole library to Evernote so I could access it anywhere,  then got bogged down in how best to list and tag the bookmarks.  So for the moment at least I'm with diigo!

Gazumped, did you know you can mass import your bookmarks to Diigo from other places, including EI? Just discovered that myself and thought I'd share on the off chance you didn't know.
