Paperless Reading on Your Mac - AppleMatters - 6 views

  • When I recently stumbled upon Diigo.com I found the perfect solution for bookmarking and annotating web pages instead of saving them as PDFs or wasting paper and ink by printing them.

    Diigo.com and Delicious.com work similarly whereby you can annotate, tag, and share bookmarks with other members of the site. The site provides a downloadable toolbar for Firefox, Flock and Internet Explorer web browsers for online browsing and interaction. For other browsers, including Safari, it provides a bookmarklet similar to the toolbar but not quite as feature rich.
  • I want my desktop printer to be nearly as archaic as film-based cameras.

  • Recently, I’ve also discovered a great site called Diigo.com
  • so accustomed now to using the highlighter in Preview and Diigo

      As Mail.app uses WebKit, so something like this may be possible.

      However: the simple act of 'filing' a message — moving it from one mailbox to another — could be enough to break the reference point upon which a highlight might rely.

      I wonder how Qu-s handles references to messages that move.

      So are you saying this could be developed as a plug-in for Mail? I wonder what would it fake for Apple to actually incorporate this feature?

    Bakari Chavanu wishes for a highlighter pen to work in Mail in Mac OS X. I like that idea.

      Maybe some confusion?

      A single snapshot comprises an HTML file and a PNG (screen shot), both cached.

      The snapshot page defaults to an HTML version.

      Texts within HTML cached copies are indexed, and can be searched; and cached HTML content is used for the underlying part of an annotated view, but:

      * it is not (or should not be) possible to draw new Diigo highlights across cached copies.

  • priced high for those only interested in page archival
  • impressive
  • a one-button approach
