I'd been looking for usable web bookmarking service suitable for KM-users (taking myself as example ;-). And finally I've got it!
Looks like far-fetched problem? Slow down. I've tried so many services and hardly could find required, unless I've got it!
So what were the requirements?
1) This shouldn't be necessarily 'social' bookmarking (as almost any bookmark, published in web, is social) - crucial point is power management (find, sort, export-import and so on) abilities along with...
2) ...cyrillic encoding support and...
2) ...and that was a stumbling block - I've needed the tool to quickly add site to my account while surfing and get back to surf.
KM don't support bookmarklets like 'big 4' does^
- you can create such JS-bookmark only by hand in BM-editor
- you are limited in JS length
- even if created, bookmarklet won't behave as expected as a general rule.
So I've changed a lot of services - you know, there are about 100 popular web-bookmarking services and God knows how much out-of-the-way ones.
After declining many top-of-mind social services I've started with Chipmark.com
where my collection was stored for some time, but it hasn't KM-workable tool (only FF extension) and - the worse - when I've tried to export my collection to html-file - it creates something unusable nor by KM neither by other browsers (Chrome for example).
I've spent much time digging into this file and making it compatible with Mozilla bookmarks format manually. Thanks God, I'd succeeded! (as only one copy of my linl collection existed - chipmarked
So, while being pretty convenient and easy on the eye chipmark.com cannot be recommended unless you aren't FF user.
Then I'd been trying many more services looking for long lists and comparative reviews on the web, but every time I have failed. Sometimes the deal stops at very beginning when it comes to i10n (no cyrillic codepage support), but much more it was about functions and finally (almost overwhelming point!) - when it comes to the "Add link in KM" quiz.
Thinking positive I want to mark only services, what are interesting in some way, but this can wait...
As now I'm glad to present you THE WINNER!
Best K-Meleonnaire web-bookmarking service: LinkaGoGo
It isn't perfect visually but it has all the power of bookmark online management and some more ;-) and - the most important - LinkaGoGo button can be added to the KM personal bookmarks panel (manually of course) and it's workable!!!
You browse the web ->
-> you find page to save in bookmarks ->
-> you press 'Add2LinkaGoGo' button ->
-> 'Add bookmark' page with form (mainly filled in automatically!) is opened ->
-> you choose folder for save and some other options then press 'Add' button ->
-> you're back on your saved page
and the link is added to your collection in background!
Earlier I've found MURL service, giving almost the same workflow, but its window won't be filled in automatically and it doesn't close and return you back after adding.
But none the victory can be taken without a fight!
And when I became almost happy one thing had nearly destroyed my achievement - when I've imported KM-bookmark file into LinkaGoGo I found that it can't understand cyrillic symbols! OMFG!!! What to do? Where to find replacement??? Game over?!
I've tried to save html-file in different encodings locally and then import it - but none succeeded.
And finally I've noticed that the list of formats suitable for import seems familiar to me. Yes - it was almost the same as the list of accessible transcodings in one tool I've downloaded the day earlier - Transmute
That was the escape!
I've converted my html-file into XBEL (XML-based format) - and import was 100% successful!
Now I have all my collection online and I can to supplement it day by day using my lovely KM! (like any other popular browser, by the way).
LinkaGoGo has one small limitation though - it assumes that more than 20 additions to the collection a day (or simply frequent supplement) looks like spam and sometime refuses to add one link immediately after another being added.
Just wait a minute - all should be OK then!
Welcome to LinkaGoGo, folks, if you need web bookmarking system fully working in K-Meleon.
Don't think it's a spаm message, please
It really was my big problem when using KM as default browser and I'm very happy to get it gone. So I think it may be useful for somebody here.
I'm planning to continue my talks about software which is worth to combine with KM in everyday use...
