- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 12248567, vor 4 MonatenI paid for premium. My tags aren't showing up in the tag management area. I've made multiple attempts to contact the company. The web app indicates I'm supposed to have premium support. I also tried on Twitter/X. Since the boomarklet says to rate the app, I'm posting here to see if they finally respond to me. I'll give it two stars because it's got so much potential, but this total un-responsiveness to paying customers is weird.
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 13790394, vor 3 JahrenNo longer works in latest version of Firefox: doesn't load my tags or my outliners. This is now useless to me as my main browser is Firefox.
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon 234523, vor 3 JahrenWell - it works, but beware that when you're on the Free plan, you have a limit of 500 annotations, and it's not mentioned on their webpage or during the sign-up process, which is shady.
Keep in mind that you can still make annotations after you hit your limit, but making a new one will force you to dismiss a popup box that tells you that you're over quota, and will nag you every time you visit their webpage.
The premium subscription is priced ridiculously, at 40$ a year. It certainly DOES NOT cost them 40$ a year to host small text files and a few megabytes of cached content. Developers should be paid for their work, but what they're charging is far too much for such a basic service. In contrast, you could get 100GB of Google Drive storage for 25$/year, and Apollo Ultra costs 10$/year, and that developer actually communicates, updates the app and is transparent about their billing practices.
Not only that, but updates are extremely rare (just take a look at their blog page, the last post is from May 2018), and their "Groups" social feature looks like it hasn't been updated since 2008. It's also filled with spam.
All I want is an extension that allows me to annotate without connecting to any cloud-based service (Seeing how they barely update anything, security is a concern).
Alternatives to Diigo are relatively hard to find. I would have thought that extensions that let you highlight, annotate and tag would have been more commonplace, but the only actual alternative I found was hypothes.is. That service is updated much more frequently, and costs nothing for non-LMS uses. The main drawback to that, however, is the rather clunky UI that doesn't play well with NoScript and the lack of an official Firefox extension, as well as the constant cloud connectivity.
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 13574424, vor 3 Jahreni am a paying client since 4 or 5 years, the Firefox version of the highlighter works in 80% of the pages in chrome works perfect. Updates come every 2 years or something like that? ...painful. I continue paying because there is no decent alternative, it's a pity
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon grahamperrin, vor 5 JahrenDiigo service is excellent, but modern versions of the Diigo extension are troublesome.
Prefer legacy Diigo Toolbar 126.96.36.199, with Waterfox instead of Firefox.
Current version 188.8.131.52 seems unable to bookmark PDF URLs, and so on.
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 14051933, vor 6 JahrenI am continually told that Diigo Web Collector is slowing down my Firefox browser. Is there a solution for this as I like using both products.
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 13764530, vor 6 JahrenThe capture feature interferes with my audio transcription work with the annotate feature sitting right on top of the audio slide, which makes it sometimes impossible for me to re-listen to portions of the audio. There doesn't seem to be any way to turn it. Although I like the webpage archiving, I am seriously considering finding another way to save webpages.
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 13394531, vor 6 JahrenThis update has made Diigo all but useless to me. The only reason I'm keeping it is because the "email link" function, while slower now than it was before the update, is still faster than any other I can find. As soon as I find a faster one I'm out of here.
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon WebDevTony, vor 6 JahrenYES, the missing toolbar does suck! But I can get over that. PLEASE, JUST ADD THE STICKY NOTES TO THE NEW DIIGO BUTTON!
The sticky notes are an extremely useful tool that I use often to cache arbitrary data on a webpage. I'd say it deserves to be in the main menu, more than the "Annotate PDF" or screenshots or whatever...
Thanks though, great tool

Rating down to 2 from 5
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon MaryAnne1383, vor 6 JahrenI've used this tool for years and I pay to use it. Why would you take away wonderful paid features? Please bring them back. I use these features daily!!!
- Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternenvon Curt, vor 6 JahrenThis may have been one of the add-ons that kept me using Firefox before this last update. Integration into the toolbar allowing me to access my bookmarks without requiring me always go through the Diigo website was one of the main features that kept me using Diigo and Firefox. It was built into my daily routines. Without it, I now have to look into other alternatives. I have not fully reviewed the entire latest update so I will continue to review it, but as of now I am looking for better options.
