As of now, there are a lot of bookmarking services out there. Kippt is a new startup that aims to stand apart from the crowd with its simple approach to bookmarking. The service comes with a clean no-fuss interface that allows users to bookmark pages and save them in a neat organized manner. Here’s more about it.
Once you sign up for the service, you need to install the Chrome extension or the bookmarklet in order to start saving items. Whenever you come across an interesting page, just hit the Kippt button, and you can save the page either to your inbox or to your Read Later list. You can also create additional lists and save pages to them right from the extension. Furthermore, you can also add a small note to your bookmark for future reference.
Unlike other bookmarking services, Kippt doesn’t rely on hashtags to categorize bookmarks; instead, it uses lists to group bookmarks together making things much more simple. Likewise, the search box at the top allows you to search through all your bookmarks. If you want, you can also share your saved items with your friends on social networks by connecting your Twitter and Facebook accounts with Kippt.
Coming to the interface, Kippt sports a clean and minimalistic UI which is quite a far cry from traditional bookmarking services. On the left you have your lists and on the middle pane, you have your saved bookmarks. One thing I love about Kippt is that the interface only focuses on the core features rather than adding some extra fluff.
Being currently in beta, there are a couple of features that the service misses out on.For example, I’d love to be able to move bookmarks between different lists, using drag and drop. Also, the lack of extensions for other browsers might disappoint a few users. Other than that, I found the service pretty stable and easy to use. Overall, Kippt is a perfect bookmarking service for folks who love minimalistic interfaces that focus on core features.
Update : You can drag and drop between lists by grabbing the globe icon. Also, Kippt provides a nifty little bookmarklet for Firefox and Safari users. Thanks to the service’s developer for clarifying these things.
