Diigo Chrome Extension much enhanced, renamed as “Diigo Web Collector”

Over the past month or so, we have rolled out some significant enhancements to the Diigo extension on Chrome browser. With the new extension, you can now:

  • Capture and markup screenshots
  • More easily add highlights, especially multi-color highlights
  • Access cached versions of web pages you bookmarked
  • Easily add pages to read later (and optionally close the page automatically)
  • Save images from webpages as part of a bookmark or as a separate item
  • Support keyboard shortcuts
  • Search your library from the extension (coming soon) 

For more details, please see the changelog here >>

The new extension is now named “Diigo Web Collector” to reflect the fact it enables a variety of ways for you to collect web content of interest to you, so you can:

  • Just bookmark the link
  • Save the page itself
  • Capture screenshot
  • Add highlights and sticky notes
  • Save images on the page

Diigo’s mission is to provide you with the best experience for collecting and annotating your online content.  Let us know how we are doing and how we can do better!

Create a new Diigo List on the fly

Diigo’s “List” is a great way to organize, share and display specific collections of bookmarks (For those not familiar with this feature, click here to Learn more >>)

What if sometimes you find a good webpage and inspire you to start a new list collection, but you don’t have a good list created yet to archive that page? No problem. We’ve just added a new feature in FF toolbar (FF Version to make your research process flow even easier:

You can now create a new list on the fly while bookmarking. Here is how:

1) Click the Bookmark button on toolbar to open up the bookmarking window
2) Check the “Add to a list” box. Use the pull-down menu to select “Create a list

3) Enter new list name, select privacy for the list, click “Create“, then “Save

This new process enables you to create a new list, and add whatever page you’re reading to the new collection on the fly. Make sure that you have the latest Diigo FF toolbar installed. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

PS. Diigo IE toolbar will support this new feature very soon. Stay tuned.
