I've been using Furl
online bookmarks. Furl allows you to maintain your own copy of a webpage
online and to categorize and tag webpages you save through Furl.

you visit. With Furl you can have all of your bookmarks online and

When Furl bookmarks a page for you, you can have an area you have
highlighted on the webpage added to a "clipping" field. You can add
your own comments on the webpage to a "comment" field. You can pick
a category or multiple categories for the webpage. You can create
whatever categories you choose. The title for the webpage will also
be stored with the bookmark for the page.
Furl will also look for "author" and "date"
meta tags on the webpage.
If you are creating webpages that others may Furl, you can have Furl
automatically fill its "Author" and "Publication Date" fields by adding
meta tags like the following to your webpages. The date should be in the
form YYYY-MM-DD, i.e. year, month, day form with a leading zero added to
one-digit months or days.
<META NAME="author" content="Jane Doe">
<META NAME="date" content="2006-04-02">
