Joliprint


Today’s link is to a very useful web application. Joliprint is a bookmarklet that allows you to turn a normal website page into a PDF document. I have only just discovered this one and added it to my bookmarks. I think it will prove very handy in times to come.

StumbleUpon


StumbleUpon is a social network for web surfing and sharing webpages and sites that you particularly like and find useful. You can easily surf the web by ‘stumbling’ along – that is, by clicking the stumble button on the toolbar that you can install, allowing you to visit random sites in the categories you choose to explore. As you visit sites, you can like/dislike them, allowing StumbleUpon to learn your likes and dislikes as you surf the web via StumbleUpon.

Being a social network, StumbleUpon allows you to share the sites you visit with friends and others within the StumbleUpon community. Of course, StumbleUpon can be used as a bookmarking type of site, by adding the sites you like to StumbleUpon in a similar way to that of adding favorites/bookmarks to Delicious or your browsers favorites/bookmarks. It’s up to you.

I tend to use StumbleUpon as a surfing tool and haven’t really added a lot to my favorites (I generally forget to do that). For this purpose I have adjusted the settings within StumbleUpon to reflect the topics I like to explore while surfing the web. So it isn’t such a sharing tool for me, as a recommendation tool for the various categories I have checked.

Delicious


Delicious is a bookmarking/favorite web application, in that it saves and archives the URLs that you like. Of course you can save your bookmarks/favorites in your browser, which I do with Google Chrome (Bookmarks). I use Google Bookmarks for mine, as well as Delicious (which I use for my public bookmark sharing web application). I also use Wonderpage (see https://onetoday.wordpress.com/2011/02/02/wonderpage/ ) to visually show my Delicious bookmarks as thumbnails of the page.

Why do I use both Google Bookmarks and Yahoo’s Delicious (currently owned by Yahoo anyhow). Well there are a number of reasons. Firstly I prefer to use the Cloud for most of my Internet tasks, which will generally always allow me access to my data no matter what computer I use and/or wherever I am. Using both also allows me to have a readily available backup – which is always wise I think. Of course I also like to allow visitors to my Blogs, websites and so on, to have access to sites that I think are fairly useful and valuable.

Anyhow, have a look at Delicious – it is in my opinion the best bookmarking application in the Cloud.

Wonderpage


I suppose there is no real reason to actually use this web application (not that you have to use any I guess). Most web users generally have some form of bookmarks or favorites as a mechanism for remembering URLs. Wonderpage is a means of visually remembering URLs, with a thumbnail view of the web page being remembered in a grid/list of other such URL memories. Wonderpage is just another way of sharing your favorite bookmarks with others (or for yourself).

There is an add-on for Firefox and an extension for Chrome. You are also able to import bookmarks in an HTML file and from Delicious.

If I have to be critical, there seems to be no way of receiving much in the way of online help – FAQ, etc. It is also difficult to see just how you can link to your public page/profile.
