I'm sorry to say, but I consider bookmarks slightly private, and I wouldn't want just any company to look over my shoulder and read all the pages I bookmark.
While the product seems awesome I'm going to have to pass.
Just FYI -- I found the shaky window upon inputting an incorrect password very annoying and disorienting. I just wanted to reenter my password but wasn't able to because the window was still shaking.
So I created an account and the site has now been stuck on "We're uploading your bookmarks." for the past 3 hours at the bar about 3/5 of the way done.
Edit: I have since refreshed and now it's stuck at 0.
But you really REALLY need to modify your icon. There are a million bookmarked shaped icons in this world, and for some reason no-one ever incorporates a mark with the bookmark icon so that it can be differentiated. So now on chrome I have 2 bookmark icons that look identical (the other is for 'read it later'), and two other ones that relate to bookmarks but are stars. Great.
Maybe accounts shouldn't be strictly required, but would permit a fuller range of service? At any rate, I've hit a brick wall, because I am hesitant to go any further.
I'm not sure why I hate registering so much (yet another password to remember (or the risk of using the same password on all websites)? or is it completely irrational?) -- but I do, and I guess I'm not the only one.
Otherwise I'd love to try it out - I periodically bemoan the suckiness of bookmarks.
It cycles on the "uploading bookmarks" page for a couple of minutes (I only have 50 or so!) and then
An error occurred in the application and your page could not be served. Please try again in a few moments.
If you are the application owner, check your logs for details.
Though this UI might change that! Will deffo try it out!
Any thoughts on twitter favs, which a lot of users (including me) misuse as a booking marking service.
Thank you for creating a service I needed.
UPDATE: Seems to be working when installed from the Chrome Web Store, rather than the link on the site.
(I also agree with the comment below that it's an edge case for most users, especially Chrome sync users.)
If I edit a URL, stashmarks doesn't reflect the change in the UI, at least when the original is still pending download. Looks like it's actually changed internally.
Also, I can't delete (or edit) a bookmark in stashmarks that I no longer have saved in my browser. Recreating it and deleting that does nothing, even when logged out and then in.
Hope these critiques are helpful.
Clearly, these are all edge cases, and overall your service is impressive.
Might want to make sure it stays up. :)
Fair play you might not want to log in but the whole point in this service (I believe) is that it's synced across all of your Chrome instances, hence the need to sign in.
Alternative question (assuming their gonna start charging because otherwise they're operating a going-out-of-business model), would you pay for this if they were to make it a lightweight plug in that doesn't require signing in and doesn't sync across your various Chrome instances?
