Rated 4 out of 5 stars
There have been many occasions when I very easily exceeded the 1000 character sharing limit, while just clipping the best parts of a web page that I really wanted to share.
Increasing the share limit to 2000 characters won't hurt your website at all. But, until you decide to loosen the leash, I will always be disappointed in Clipmarks.
Useful, but privacy? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I agree with the reviews about how useful and cool this addon is.
My concern is with privacy. I emailed the Clipmarks team a couple of times, asking basic questions like this and of technical details about the format of the storage, whether they'd consider a version that would store your data locally (like Foxmarks does so well). No reply.
I've uninstalled clipmarks, opting for a PIM like Yojimbo which suits me fine.
There is yet another plugin of similar functionality, and they also refuse to answer the above questions (sorry, I forgot the name).
This should make you concerned about privacy, if you care about your personal data and clips.
Unbelievable Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Gorgeous way to grab/save/send info. from websites.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I love Clipmarks. It's easy to use and works well w/ my blogger account. I haven't met 1 obnoxious user yet. In fact, I like this site more for how the users supply unique and intriguing links & clips than its capacity for me to save my own. My only complaint: I wish it permitted longer clips.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3).
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This is the most unbearably obnoxious extension I've found yet. The basic idea-save a portion of a webpage-is good, but this makes it overly complicated, and focuses on being yet another social networking/sharing tool rather than on basic functionality. The tool is annoying and rife with popup notices. The website is more annoying, and squeezes your clips (organized into "clipcasts", so help me) into tiny boxes where you can barely see what you were trying to save in the first place. And the condescending verbiage of the website ("Things I found interesting on the web!") was itself enough to turn me off.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3).
I prefer Google Notebook Extension for Firefox Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Clipmarks seems too intrusive for me. I have to click a button, then pops a yellow toolbar, then mark what I want to save, then another window opens with a lot of fields to be field and huge fonts.
With google Notebook extension for Firefox I just right click on a text selection and choose „Note this”.
Help? :-) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This seems like a really awesome extension. I can't get it to connect with my blog, however. My blog url is mcdaniel.baywords.com, which uses the WordPress MU, but when I enter my credentials it says there is an error. I know that Baywords is a new service, but does anyone know how I could make this work?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3).

Really useful thing. Thanks a lot for making it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3).

It's good, but I like Google Notebook better. My notes are synced across all browsers (or I can just view it from a web page without installing the extension or with IE), the UI is a bit better, and it's easier to keep organized.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.2).

I do not know, how did without it earlier. Thanks, very conveniently.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.2).
Great concept but... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It's a fantastic concept- 'clip' items of interest and intrigue from around the web- either for reference or for sharing ala stumble etc.
However, the 'back-end' bit- the Clipmarks pages for reviewing your clips, managing, sorting, sifting are just bloated and awful.
Overladen with useless features, it's too hard to get to what you want to do- for example the button's drop down menu doesn't have the brain numbingly obvious 'see my clips' button.
I know that _somewhere_ in the internet there is a nice simple list of the items I've clipped and tagged from web pages- but I'll be damned if I can find it.
It needs a lot of slimming down and scrapping of extra useless 'features' before this is anything but time wasting.
Too Bad - Clips are Static Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I am looking for a extension exact like this but clipping the dynamic content. Lets say a clipped Weater Icon or a clipped temperature (text) should always be actual. So I am looking for something clipping the Url and the Area but not the hard underlying content.
And too bad also, its not open source ... I can not change its behavior by myself.
If anyone knows a solution please notify me.
Love It Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is quite a lovely little extension. It's amazing and it works well, although it can be a little bit difficult at times.
Still, it's one of the best.
Nothing Better in its Class Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Clipmarks adds value to your browsing, browsing, clipping and sharing experience. Being a bookmark and hotlist afficionado, I was curious about ClipMarks. I already had del.icio.us, but I was drawn to the added feature of clipping quotable material.
I first added Clipmarks in early June, 2007 because it sounded like a great free tool for research. On the fly, I could copy snippets of the article I found important,as well as, properly quote and cite information for later use.
Being a teacher, I immediately could see the potential value for students researching a topic on the internet. When they found an article, they could clip it, store it online, and use it later for their research. I thought it would be especially helpful for teachers who ask students to find Current Event articles in their study area.
What I didn't know was that Clipmarks is a very powerful add-on program. You can clip snippets, pictures and save them to your online file. Also, you can tag your article in del.icio.us or magnolia. Your comments, are yours, they belong to you, so you can use them later in your research. Another striking feature is the ability to send your clipmark to your blog(there are several) or get code to embed in blogs, like MySpace, that are not supported. There are a vast array of other extras available in Clipmarks that you will want to use.
All your Clipmarks can be private, but by making your clips public, you have the added benefit of community. There is a community of "clippers" who can pop your clipmarks. The pop is a way to acknowledge your clip as intersting or important. They add your clip to their database...with credit to you. Also, people can comment on a public clip. Many times, clippers have led me to other similar articles.
Clipmarks is a wonderful online tool, with a tiny icon(w/dropdown menu) and a great community that is more agile and responsive than Digg!
You can lock in redundant bookmarking to del.icio.us, so I think everyone should add-on ClipMarks....
Did I mention that I love Clipmarks, and I am reviewing it after using it for several months? Yeah! It's true.

What a wonderful time saver - and great for accuracy, being dyslexic I really appreciate knowing that it has been copied correctly. Thank youThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.5).
Perfect for slow connections Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I think this is the greatest thing since Firefox!
If you have a super-SLOW connection/transfer rate like me (2.065-3.085 bps yes that's bytes per sec not Kb) You will appreciate this awesome add-on. It would have taken me weeks to find the interesting links and clips that other people have found for me on Clipmarks.
Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars
So far, so good.
SUPER!!! Love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I had no trouble installing, and it is so simple to use, ( forgive me) even a caveman can do it! ha ha!! I am now able to snag and share things I haven't been able to before. In my email, blog, anywhere, I love the freedom, and what this has let to my learning to do...
Thanks so much for this!!! Please keep up with FF and TB, I don't want to be with out it and I find other great things in the newsletters! Can you tell I am a fan?
