Bookmark only parts of a page.

I’m a huge fan of these bookmarking tools like del.icio.us and stumbleupon, which make saving pages and searching for them so very easy.

Clipmarks is a tool which goes a step ahead and lets you save only parts of a page like the video, or a paragraph or an image.
When you are working on some report and collecting data from the web on a notepad, the data soon becomes unreadable
and cluttered. With clipmarks, you can save the url of the page from which you took the lines, or quotes.
After you’ve saved parts of the page, you can then publish them on your blog, or mail them to your friends. Clips you’ve marked as public can also be viewed and searched by other people using clipmarks. So you can search for other clips matching your interest and then rate them, save them or tag them.
How it works is you download the firefox(or IE) extension, which puts an (huge) icon right after the navigation field and the firefox search field. A version for safari hasn’t been released though.

When you click the icon, a nearly unobtrusive orange toolbar appears right above the page and then you can select out parts of the page you would like to save. Add description and tags to make future search easier.


The pop-up for saving the clips.

From Ziff Davis Web buyer’s guide. Clipmarks is much more than just an easy and effective way to store pieces of Web pages for future reference, sharing, and gathering commentary—it can actually become a way of life.

Uhuroo.com is an IIT Bombay incubated startup doing something similar and using much more complicated terms to describe it. You can only save sentences and paragraphs though.

Happy clipping!
