Disclosure: The company I’m writing about below is a sponsor of rev2. My sponsors are important, but my readers more so: as a result, I’ve tried to remain as unbiased as I can with my views on the product.
Adaptiveblue’s BlueOrganizer, a Firefox extension I’ve been in love with from the start just rolled out with version 2.7. I don’t normally cover minor updates but I felt this one was important enough to make it through.
The new version first and most importantly features the ability to ‘bluemark’ images and videos, something I’ve yet to see someone do (unless you count YouTube’s internal ‘favorites’ feature). I think with the growing number of videos on the web, such a service is needed. The videos category in Digg is the closest true social bookmarking comes to video, and if you’d like to social bookmark something not because you think the community will find it interesting but just for you to save and view later, del.icio.us and other similar ones — which are not really meant for video — are your only option.
Other new and minor things 2.7 includes is the ability to e-mail bookmarks to friends, a Product (RED) collection, the feature to export your blog bookmarks as an OPML, and a bunch of new actions and sites. Also, one a brighter note, congratulations to BlueOrganizer for being featured as one of the 25 recommended Firefox Addons with the release of Firefox 2.0! It’s amazing how far they’ve come since that tiny Firefox extension.
