RIP: Circa 2000
Backflip.com closed its doors in in late 1999 or early 2000.
I have been interested in making comparisons between now 2018 and the past as far as the internet is concerned. According to Wikipedia Social Bookmarking page, there are few Social bookmarking sites left. Is Social Book Marking Dead?
Correcting my earlier comments on Backflip, an online bookmarking and excellent research tool: it does indeed work with Firefox (or pretty much any other browser). Kenny Gorman sent me the following information:
"Backflip indeed does work on Firefox. You simply have to create the 'button' by yourself. In fact, it works on Safari and just about any other browser that has a button bar. If you paste the below link into any button bar, your button will work...
Thanks for the mention!"
There you have it. You can check out Kenny's database engineering blog here.
There are also indications that Backflip may be adding some interesting new features over the coming months. I'll keep you posted.
