Odd little alternative to del.icio.us

Icon 1 Comments
Ok I assume most of the readers have heard of, if not used, del.icio.us. Well its a Web2.0 app, more specifically a social bookmarking tool. It started of independantly but has been bought by Yahoo! (smart move that for the Y!) but has been kept mostly independant of other Y! services. However, I know there is a rebel creeping inside you, someone who wants to be different. For all such people I came accross this gem of a site - http://www.clipmarks.com/.

Clipmarks is a site which allows the user to clip certain parts of a webpage (mostly the most important bits) and then bookmark the clipped information + the URL. These 'clips' are then shared by people making it a unusually successful social bookmarking tool which is very good at summarizing information. They've got a pretty decent community with minimum spam and a very intuitive design. Plus the toolbar for Firefox which does the actual 'clipping' works like a charm. If you are tired of using del.icio.us and want an alternative, Clipmarks is worth a try.

Disclaimer: I don't know anyone who works for Clipmarks nor am I a very active member of the community. (Heck I'm not even being paid to write this :P )
