I have an account in all the above tools. Of them all, I really like two: furl and Filangy. Furl, as many of you already know is a web-based bookmarks manager that is shareable. Nice. I do not like del.ici.ous because those tags can really grow like weeds. But, Filangy, in the past couple of weeks I was trying out, really hits the sweetspot for me. There have been countless times in the past when I used to bust my gut trying to remember websites where I saw some information that was very interesting but not immediately relevant and hence not bookmarked; as it usually happens with such events, a few weeks later, you really need that info and you cannot remember the url of the webpage for the life of you. This is where Filangy comes in. It works quietly in the background and indexes every page you visit that is publicly available (it does not index all the pages which have restricted access like your bank statements, email accounts etc.). If I had Filangy 3–4 months back, this post would have been far more easier to publish. I just could not remember where I saw the new product diffusion rate variations across EU countries. I had to search the wbe for a couple of hours to get some information that could do. With Filangy, it would have been a cinch!
As the filangy blurb says:
Using Filangy is simple -- you don't have to do anything for it to be of use to you. Just use the web as you normally would and let the Filangy toolbar do the rest. Filangy automatically indexes the pages you visit or WebMark and stores your previous searches for ready reference.
Oh by the way, I have a couple of invites to Filangy in case any of you are interested. Drop me a comment here and I will set you up.
Update: I am all out folks.
