The cleanest and fastest bookmarking client I've seen, since Pukka. Entering tags is easy; auto-complete does not slow me down (a problem with Delibar and others). It delivers all it promises.

MISING FEATURES:

• When making a "new" bookmark for a page I already have bookmarked, I'd like it to retrieve the Title, Tags and Note I already have for that URL (e.g. like Delibar does). Then I'd be free to change and save that info, or save the same info to a different account

• Keyboard shortcut to un/mark Private.

• Currently selected text in browser automatically pasted into the Note field of a new bookmark (like most bookmarking apps do).

• Suggested tags appear slowly, but I assume that's a problem with the Delicious api, not Shiori.

If Shiori had the first of these features, it would be the only Delicious or Pinboard client I'd ever use.
[Version 1.0.1]

SORRY for the duplicate reviews. Hmmm. Doesn't MacUpdate let me delete or edit my reviews?

I've relied on Mailplane 2 as my primary interface to multiple Gmail accounts for the past 4 years, on my workhorse MacBook Pro (which is still running OS X 10.6). In recent times, it does crash more than it used to.

I use Mailplane 3 only sporadically on another MacBook Pro (running OS X 10.8). So my ratings are really about Mailplane 2.

I'm pleased by Uncomplex's tech support via email.

The interface seems clean and promising. But the demo version crashed the first time I ran it, before I'd even added a single bookmark; I was simply looking through the menus. I'm sorry, but apps that are likely to crash should be considered Beta (at best) and not ready for sale.

Observations based on trying BookMacster for a day or two:

• for geeks only
• high learning curve
• drab and sloppy interface
• some operations are slow and/or CPU hogs
• seems to handle 13,000 bookmarks, once they've loaded
• tag auto-complete is much faster than DeliBar
• buggy (e.g. functionality disappears)
• it crashes
• it's not a replacement for Pukka's handling of multiple Delicious accounts

side note: More impressed than ever with how well Justin Miller's Pukka worked (until it got orphaned, and his apologies for crufty coding notwithstanding).

Yes, what I really want is a replacement for Pukka. This isn't it.

Observations based on a couple weeks trying Delibar (as a replacement for beloved but defunct Pukka):

• the promise of managing multiple Delicious accounts attracted me.
• the tidy interface made a good first impression.
• seemed to download 13,000 bookmarks from Delicious in a reasonable amount of time.
• it crashed on multiple occasions.
• it's as painfully slow as Delicious’ bookmarklet when autocompleting tags. (like, "go do something else and come back" slow.)
• maybe it works better for someone with a small number of bookmarks?

I really want to like you Delibar. I'm looking for a simple, unobstrustive and efficient user experience. But you're too slow, at least with my large bookmark collection. And the crashes don't help.

The little improvements in DeliBar 1.6 make it more usable. And I've experienced no more crashes.

Auto-complete is still so slow that entering tags is impractical. If there were a Preference to TURN OFF auto-complete, I'd find DeliBar's interface far more useable.

To avoid auto-complete, the simplest work-around is to type all your desired tags in the Notes field (or TextEdit, or anywhere convenient that you can type text), then cut-n-paste them all into the Tags field.

the only reason i'm not panicked about my most essential hard drive dying today, is the frequent duplicates i've made of that drive, with SuperDuper.

i agree with Charless (29 April 2011 review). i've relied on DiskWarrior since version 1. but i have several working drives whose directories are too big for it cannot rebuild. (in my case, the extreme large number of items in the directory is due to an exceptionally large number of email messages stored in Mail.app.)

i'd gladly pay full price for a new 64-bit version of DiskWarrior that can rebuild the directories on these essential hard drives. meanwhile, the only reason i'm not panicked because one of those drives died today, is my frequent drive duplicates made with SuperDuper.
