4.2 Stars out of 5
- by Laila, 3 months agoRated 3 out of 5Worldbrain is a manager and annotation tool for web content. For me, it's the best I've used so far. The main features are:
* Organizing your links trough tags and collections;
* Searching and filtering these links trough the Memex's dashboard;
* Annotation tool / highlighter;
* Backup (to a hosting service or offline);
* Nice UI (although it has some things to improve);
For me, the main issues are:
* Instability: I don't know how the tests are done, but may be almost exclusively automated and/or few/none manual testing are done in Firefox before releasing an update. Twice it happened that Memex broke in the last 3 months or so. This time, in version 1.5.0 (Jan 6, 2020), the main features of tagging, putting links in collections, etc stopped working.
* Can't rename tags (it's possible to rename collections though);
* Can't tag files in general (PDFs, images, etc);
* Searching at "Add Tag(s)" or "Add To Collection(s)" only consider first term/word of tags.
** Eg.: You have a tag named "my tag" or "my-tag". If you search for "my", it will find it; if you search for "tag", it won't find it.
* Filter uses logical disjunction, not having an option to use conjuction instead;
* Can't reposition sidebar to left side;
* No mobile app (yet);
* No dark mode (yet).
* added 3 issues;
* removed 1 issue: "Issues to backup if adblock is enabled".
* added 1 issue: unstable;
* edit rating: from 4/5 to 3/5.

- by Firefox user 14928035, 10 months agoRated 5 out of 5Benefits: A really functional piece of software: you can annotate websites, bookmark them quickly, share links to highlights on any website!
The only disadvantage is the UI. It's a bit rough at the moment.
Having said that, I prefer that each entry does not have a picture, because some websites don't have good pictures. We shouldn't want to pick out from our saved lists based on their pictures, but rather on their content.
I would like to have the collections side bar permanent on the side, and the google drive backup working.
- by Firefox user 14441840, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Excellent, j'attendais ces fonctions depuis longtemps et je suis pas déçu. A plusieurs reprises j'ai pu retrouver des pages web impossible à retrouver par les marques pages ayant oublié le titre.
- by jonpienaar, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Really saves time with research. No more trawling through bookmarks or history -- everything is there, at your fingertips. I'm just starting to use the tagging feature, and it's great. Instead of bookmark folders within folders, you can assign tags to different pages, then find them again from the browser address bar. Very useful.
- by derek400004, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5incredible extension with tons of potential - will be keeping my eye out.
i'm really hoping to see strong data encryption, support for Google-like vague search terms, and automatically indexing new Firefox bookmarks created on my other devices (e.g. my mobile, tablet, etc) during the day. optional full-webpage cache will be great too!
