This. Alternatively, I send them to myself through XMPP and then forget about them.

I do that too! I have a channel in IRC called #acdw-bookmarks that I’ve /away’d from so much the original links are lost waay far back in the scrollback, lol.

Oh and I email myself lists of links. And I write myself notes. It’s ridiculous. I should make a webpage for myself that I can send links to that just collects 'em and shows everyone all the shit I don’t read.

You could try something like Wallabag. I used Pocket for a long time to support Firefox, but I recently switched to open source self-hosted alternatives.

I tried self hosting Wallabag on a Pi Model 3B+ but doesn’t seem like they support ARM 32 bits. maybe they’ve changed that. I’m eager for archiving my stuff in it.

I use pocket, it’s pretty great for this case and to discover similar interests, you just need a Firefox account and it’s already integrated.

Leave the tab open. Sometimes I’ll write it on cryptpad if I need to share it between computers

Oh, I know, I don’t particularly like it, and browsers don’t let go of the memory, but that’s what I do.

I use a plain text file.

I use to put all meaningful links into tmp.md. On android, I use “share” feature of Firefox to Markor app. The link is autogenerated and I have only to add some notes to myself. Here an example.

- [duck duck go](https://duckduckgo.com/), an interessing browser #privacy

when I have some time, I read it and reorganize these links into more specific files like privacy.md.

When thematic grow, I can consolidate this to build an intrrssing text, post or idea.

That’s actually a great use of Markor, I’d say. And it saves a lot of time too, when you want to operate on a strictly text file approach. Auto-generation of links seems to really fit the needs here.

What about buku? I honestly don’t use it because the Tridactyl bookmark search is enough but otherwise it’d be my go-to.

I use floccus and Nextcloud Bookmarks. It’s like Pocket but everything is self-hosted, free/libre software, and private.

I have been using xBrowserSync browser extension and Android app for this exact purpose for a while. It is originally meant for syncing bookmarks and I sync bookmarks with it too (even though it is a bit fidgety with some browsers — having problems with theirs bookmarks hierarchy (it can read it just fine, only the sync is a bit problematic), so I don’t sync the bookmarks with browser bookmarks usually, only having it as a separate bookmarks backup), it mainly serves as a FOSS Pocket alternative to me. Using tags and optional bookmark’s (link’s/tab’s) description, one can quickly search for required articles. The search is not perfect from what I have noticed, but it has never failed to show me the required bookmark after a few attempts. And there are plenty of free public instances to use if you don’t want to self-host. Should be private and secure. Using it for now, and I am quite content with what I get.

PS: Be careful not to erase all your bookmarks with it accidentally (read the instructions and backup your bookmarks first preferably).

Some people use RSS readers for that. But for this precise problem the beloved tool is Wallabag. It’s entirely free-software and selfhostable, although the developer provides a paid (cheap) instance to support development.

I’m really sad Mozilla, among other user-hostile changes, acquired a closed-source centralized startup (Pocket) to integrate into Firefox, despite users explicitly asking them to support a FLOSS selfhosted solution.

I’m too stupid to self host and too poor to pay for wallabag. : (

This is what someone from Mozilla said in Pocket’s Matrix room:

For your question about open source, that is still a goal for Pocket and since the acquisition, we’ve open sourced some parts of our platform, including our extensions and some build tools. This is something that remains important to us, but it does take time as it requires code review, auditing, etc.

Despite all the respect i have for Mozilla devs (not the execs, they’re user-hostile assholes payed in millions), this is pure bullshit. Pocket was started in 2007. Even if (hypothetically) it was not destined to be free-software and selfhostable at the time, Mozilla acquired Pocket 4 years ago now (2017). If there were actual concerns about reviewing/auditing, Pocket would never have been integrated by default into Firefox (i hope). It does not take that long to review/audit a simple piece of software storing links (admittedly, it does a little more, but not that much more).

I almost bought that narrative 4 years ago, despite being very disappointed that Mozilla spent a considerable amount of money on a sketchy startup that produces non-free software that you can’t even selfhost (contrary to Firefox Sync which was initially designed to be selfhostable, but well that dream also evaporated due to Mozilla taking other directions). Now, it’s too late. Mozilla direction has become increasingly user-hostile: telemetry by default, dropped RSS support, increased implementation of bullshit standards (DRM, battery API…), home-page advertisement…

The only path left for Mozilla employees (those faithful idealists who haven’t left) is to fork Mozilla as a workers coop (no execs, no difference in pay, full operational transparency) to regain autonomy in regards to their project priorities (so cool projects don’t die for zero reasons like Persona/FirefoxOS), and to regain user trust which is slowly eroding over time (for good reason). Mozilla used to be a friendly FLOSS community, but over the past decade it’s looking more and more like a startup. Don’t know if still the case, but for example Mozilla employees couldn’t (according to contract) tell anyone about their paycheck. Is that how FLOSS should be developed?

A co-op can have executives (voted on by the workers) and differences in pay (as part of a pay schedule, voted on by the workers).

Don’t know if still the case, but for example Mozilla employees couldn’t (according to contract) tell anyone about their paycheck.

This is heinous.

Is that how FLOSS should be developed?

Yes, all businesses should be worker-owned.

I’m too stupid to self host

Just because you’re not knowledgeable about systems administrator doesn’t mean you’re stupid! :) If you’d like to get started with selfhosting, you can try a distribution you can install on a second-hand machine (including a Raspberry pi or so) like Yunohost. It’s pretty easy to use, and Wallabag is packaged for it.

It’s a website where you store all your bookmarks. You organise them using tags. You can have a one-click “add bookmark” thing in your browsers.

I have a “Read later” folder in my bookmarks.

I might have just found an amazing combo for my browsing and bookmarking requirements and fantasies. Thanks to your comment, I tried using SessionSync extension together with my xBrowserSync setup, and it works marvellously. It allows me now to quickly share and sync bookmarks as well as opened tabs while having everything backed up and available at all times on all of my devices. You can search for bookmarks and the opened tabs saved with SessionSync simultaneously. Thanks to any bookmark manager and SessionSync bookmark format, one can easily manage and arrange tabs and move them between bookmark hierarchy, postponed and saved tabs and sessions, and actual opened tabs, while still having the option of saving and opening different tabs presets (SessionSync sessions) saved as bookmarks in a single session (bookmark folder). It should be as secure as one can get too as xBrowserSync encrypts your bookmarks (together with SessionSync sessions) when sending them to syncing instances (which can be self-hosted, or one can use one of the public instances for free because nobody but you can decrypt your synced data anyway — at least shouldn’t be AFAIK). I must do a lot of testing and experimenting, but this might be something I have always wanted yet never was able to achieve with the browser functions and extensions I had at hand… This one looks promising. Thank you for mentioning SessionSync :red heart: Maybe I won’t need to have 100+ tabs opened on every browser all the time now.
