    Hi, there.

    Google has launched Chrome as a new rival of Firefox! Do you have any ideas to make tools for this new browser? i want to know.

    Diigolet http://www.diigo.com/tools/diigolet works well on chrome. I am using it now :).

    BTW, google chrome currently doesn't support browser extensions.

    1) Choose "always show bookmarks bar" from the customize button.
    2) Drag and drop a diigolet to chrome bookmark bar.
    3) If you want to bookmark a page, just click diigolet, then a web toolbar will show up.

    I've been wondering for a while now, using Opera--is there a bookmarklet to envoke a pseudo-sidebar as well? Would be great to have access to my bookmarks without having to navigate directly to diigo.

    ahh just a note here.

    you will see:

    "Toolbar for your browser is not available."

    You have to click on the available link on the right (for say firefox) and then click other browsers and THEN the diigolet toolbar is available there that you can drag.

    Additionally, on the left hand side while in the tools area there is a link directly to the diigolet.

    Yes, bookmark your my bookmarks page and in the details, check show in panel and you should have your entry there.

    As you would see, it can be clunky because Diigo does not have mobile support and therefore shift + F11 (mobile view) does not work well so you have to struggle with navigating via scrolling.

    This is a case where it's more convenient to use Opera's nicks or putting your Diigo bookmark in the context menu so that you can much easier navigate there than deal with the sidebar problem.

    So effectively, no... bummer. What I really would love to see is a bookmarklet envoked "sidebar", much like the Diiglet. Would be most handy in, say, Chrome

    I have been bearing with the bookmarklet so that I can take advantage of google chrome's speed. I know that chrome hasnt release enough data so that Diigo can take part in the revolution. But the bookmarklet will do for now.

    However, it seems as though since so much work was done on the toolbar, we have neglected the bookmarklet. Diigo should at least upgrade the bookmarklet's features until they can have all the info they need to keep up as chrome evolves. For instance:

    1. Bookmarking to other sites: is it off, is it on? don't know like you know in the toolbar
    2. Can't bookmark to lists. Big bummer. that webslides thing is super cool. lets keep being able to use it.
    3. post to blog
    4 post to chromes bookmarks simultaneously

    and oh my lord - I would love you for ever if you could bring that little recent/unread/tag feature of the toolbar into the bookmarklet. purrrrrty please???

    Is it already secure to use Google Chrome? It is said that Google collects all your data when you are using it.

    Worked perfectly for me. Not as powerful as the good old ususal Toolbar for Firefox, but i am happy i can surf on Chrome AND register my findings on Diigo. I do hope you guys will be able to have a full toolbar on chrome eventually. (i can't surf without Diigo)

    Once again, thanks for doing all your great stuff.

    Focusing on sidebar for Chrome: as Chrome is WebKit based, here's a relevant thread:

    http://groups.diigo.com/Diigo_HQ/forum/topic/diigo-sidebar-for-safari-webkit-6837

    http://groups.diigo.com/Diigo_HQ/forum/topic/is-will-could-diigo-be-open-source-6231#5 refers us to the Diigo API in the context of open source.

    http://www.diigo.com/annotated/bb74a148c78f6baf12b705dfaf5f8b03 highlights the presence of some kind of sidebar in Chrome (I confess, I haven't tried it yet, might install it in Windows in VirtualBox over the weekend)…

    For each problem, please post details to a separate topic. Thanks.

    Are you working on full support in Chrome? Extensions are already supported: http://www.chromeextensions.org/
