In summary, the conversation discusses the need for a smart management software for bookmarks and highlights on websites. The problem with existing options such as Diigo and Scrible is the storage maximum and changing prices, which could result in loss of bookmark data. The speaker is looking for a solution that allows saving on their own computer instead of using cloud services. One suggested option is Instapaper, which stores bookmarks on its servers and offers organizing and commenting features. Additionally, the speaker uses the Read Later browser add-on to quickly add pages to Instapaper. Instapaper is private and free to use.

URL management (like Diigo and Scrible)??

Hi, I'm looking for a smart management software so I can manage all my bookmarks and highlight on websites.

The problem:
The problem with Diigo and Scrible is that there is a storage maximum and prices change, so I can't pay any more I loose all my bookmark data. A better solution (which I'm looking fore) would be if there is a software that allows you to save it on your own computer instead of on Cloud services.
Does that exist?

I use Instapaper (along with Read Later browser add-on). Instapaper stores my bookmarks on its servers, and I can organize them in folders and post comments about them. Read Later quickly adds the current page I am browsing to Instapaper.

Instapaper is private (at least, by default) and free.
