vivaldi bookmarks vs pocket/wallabag
our bookmark system is superior to any other browser i've found.
my question is can it effectively replace something like pocket or wallabag which are read-it-later apps?
i find pocket clumsy, though i really like their help-desk people.
wallabag is of interest because i can put it on my own server at some point (from what i understand).
however, i can bookmark easily with vivaldi.
more than that, i can tag and even write notes (can't do that with pocket!) - though i haven't figured out how to see the note unless i edit the bookmark.
additionally, i can sync my bookmarks with other devices using vivaldi!
so while it's not as simple as pushing the pocket extension icon - and it doesn't actually save a permanent copy - it's still a pretty effective system, imho.
i would appreciate hearing from people who contemplate bookmarks and read-it-later mechanisms and the merits thereof.
I feel the use-case with Pocket is for individual articles rather than websites as a whole. For a list of great websites that you like to frequently visit, bookmarks win. For a list of great articles/videos to read/watch, Pocket seems to be the better option. But of course, everyone uses them differently.
You're right, though highlighting is possible in Pocket, writing notes isn't. I've had to rely on Pocket+Diigo. Pocket for saving articles/keeping track of my to-read list, Diigo for highlighting and adding in my own comments to the text. The current situation is that each tool does part of what we need to, so we have to use multiple tools. Pocket syncs the items you've saved, much like Vivaldi.
I'm happy with the current setup I have with Pocket & Diigo. If you want more control over your data, a self-hosted option like Wallabg is definitely the way to go.
much appreciated, akhiluk!
the insight you present regarding bookmarks vs pocket was most helpful!
wallabag does seem to be the solution - once i setup our home server!
