    I find the new combination of
    Diigo 4.0 beta online + Diigolet
    far richer than limiting myself to Firefox.

    an awesome way to share bookmarks and annotations

    brilliant! Love it, love it, love it! Congrats!

    Diigo rocks! Thanks for all your team's great work.

    amazing. the features are great, the page cahching is very refined

    loving it

    I'm using Diigo with Chrome and the new Diigolet.

    Andy Brudtkuhl on 2009-09-29
    The diigo bar is a great tool

    Adrian Try on 2009-09-29
    I'd stopped using the toolbar, but I may have to start again to get the highlighter tool and the multiple colours.

    Bakari C on 2009-09-29
    It's because of Diigo, I might switch back to Firefox because I want the full menubar features.

    Zoli Erdos on 2009-09-29
    Is this still true? Full text search does not seem to work on items I saved weeks ago

    Adrian Try on 2009-09-29
    The highlighter functionality and multiple colours may get me working with the toolbar visible again.

    Andy Brudtkuhl on 2009-09-29
    Wooo! Been waiting for this!

    Bakari C on 2009-09-29
    Very nice. I was wondering the other night if there was an app for Diigo. Will it have annotation capabilities? That might be a lot to ask.

    I am pretty firmly stuck to Google Chrome, but I agree that the new toolbar does work quite nicely.

    Joel Liu on 2009-09-29
    I am also an active chrome user. Once it fully supports toolbar, we will develop a chrome toolbar.

    Take some time to familiarise yourself with all that's possible with Diigo online. You may find that the simple combination of Diigolet + Diigo is more flexible, more spacious, more powerful than what can be squeezed into a single toolbar or sidebar.

    Sean Brady on 2009-09-29
    Joel - To be honest I am not sure if I would install a toolbar in Chrome. I think that is one of the big reasons I am using it, no cluttering toolbars and extra stuff. I would really love to see more emphasis on pushing the boundaries of the bookmarklet. I wonder, could HTML 5 in Safari and Chrome be leveraged to create an uber bookmarklet?

    That's a massive amount and a disorienting mixture to be fed to the reader through such a small slot and there'll surely be more within the mass as people continue to comment on, draw highlights over, and stick notes to, Maggie's post.

    Paradoxically: the more that's written,

    * the less easy it becomes to read
    * the less easy it is to find the required subsection within that tiny slot
    * the lower the value.

    That's not an incentive to contribute.

    I sense that efforts have been made to ensure that proportions of Diigo Meta are suitable for netbooks with very limited displays - and forward looking design decisions such as that should be welcomed - but I'm concerned that overall usability is not as good as it should be.

    Simply: the opportunity to read comments, and for the public to add comments, is very unappealing.

    On the plus side: Diigo 4.0 is currently in beta :-) and it's early days, so this is everyone's opportunity to suggest sizes, shapes, mixtures, order etc…
