- Rated 5 out of 5by macindog, 5 years agoI've been using this for years now, when the downfall of del.icio.us was on the horizon. It makes it simple and easy to collect a tagged directory of web links, annotate pages or just flag stuff to read later.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13764530, 5 years agoThe 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.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 13761471, 5 years agoThe ease with which one can highlight, tag and save material is remarkable. If you need to find stuff in the future for research purposes or just for fun this is a terrific extension.
- Rated 1 out of 5by emmadaiou28, 5 years agoI use Diigo mainly for simple bookmarking and tagging functions. The 'redesign' of the extension has made it nearly unusable even for that, and the add-on seems broken at times.
1) The sidebar was the most useful thing about it, and that's now gone. The only way to access bookmarks is to actually go to the website, making the add-on largely pointless (for my purposes) other than as a shortcut to create or edit bookmarks.
2) Just now, I had to bookmark and tag the same page FOUR TIMES, because every time I clicked 'save' it brought up a pop-up ad about upgrading to a paid Diigo feature (a feature unrelated to what I was currently doing, fyi). When I dismissed the pop-up, it obviously canceled the bookmark save function along with it each time. (This was using the keyboard shortcut to save a bookmark. I ultimately had to do it by selecting the function from the toolbar icon menu instead, which did not prompt the pop-up upon saving.)
3) When a page is bookmarked, a little bar shows in the top right corner with (theoretically) tools for annotation and whatnot. Only most of the time that bar is completely blank (broken). There is no way to dismiss it, but it often ends up blocking important parts of a webpage (such as a logout link).

- Rated 5 out of 5by Levitation Edge, 5 years agodiigo is the best annotation tool (!for team knowledge sharing specifically!) we've come across after evaluating many extensions both for Chrome & Fox. They make a distinction worth paying attn to on their website - look at how long they've "been in the game" compared to other such apps & services. It may not have all the shiny bells and whistles, but it's a powerhouse of productivity underneath if you dig in.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 13694245, 5 years agoJust wanted to say that you guys are doing a great job. I just spent countless hours trying to develop a new personal & professional workflow for knowledge management when it comes to the web and after a healthy fight with pocket, evernote, instapaper, feedly, and a few others... I am going to position Diigo as the center of my knowledge management universe -- "the bucket" that captures everything.
So, I hope you guys the best and wanted you to know that your 12 man team is amazing. And that by the simple fact of listening / observing how social features were not in tune with your audience is another credit to not following the easy path that most other quick-buck companies have. In other words, seems like you guys are really trying to deliver something super useful as a primary goal. Thanks - good luck - keep it up.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 13650418, 5 years agoI absolutely love this add-on. It helps me locate websites based on my own brain associations. That way It can help me relocate (find) sites that I find valuable based on easily recalled decriptors. It also helps me keep organized lists of curriculum (websites) that my students use based on subject matter. Its a great tool and I recommend it to may people, both friends, colleagues, as well as total strangers!
