Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Completely free
No nag boxes to upgrade to a paid version, no donation boxes under every widget, just good old-fashioned gratis. They've been around since 2011, so it must be sustainable somehow.
Pro Committed to supporting Opera browser
Too few companies make a point of developing for Opera the same way they do for Chrome and Firefox; Atavi does.
Pro Convenient ability to share bookmarks or folders of bookmarks
Sharing a page is easy in just about everything, but when I need to share a folder of links (shopping list ideas or market research bundles), Atavi makes it easy for both me and the recipient.
Pro Only does one thing and does it well
On everything I own, every new tab I open in a browser has the same bookmarks in the same layout, and nothing more.
Con Automatic bookmark organizer is unpredictable
The Auto Folders as well as the Suggested Folders features rarely seem to get it right. In one case it creates random folders that have nothing to with the bookmark in question (like creating a folder called McDonalds for a picture that has nothing to do with fast food) in the other it suggests folders that clearly have better alternatives (like suggesting the folder "Linux" instead of "Productivity" for an article titled "Productivity Tools").
Con There's no way to automatically generate thumbnails to pages that were saved without thumbnails
If a site was bookmarked before installing the extension or it was saved without selecting a thumbnail, the only way to get thumbnails to show is to go to every bookmarked item manually and editing it.
Con Poorly designed UX
The extension requires a lot of clicking to save a bookmark to the appropriate folder and navigating folders is unintuitive and confusing. For example, instead of clicking a folder to open it, an arrow next to it has to be clicked, but it can't be done from the initial view as there's no arrow next to the "suggested" folder, instead an "add to folder" button has to be clicked first to access the folder selection menu. Furthermore, a bookmark can't be saved to a folder that's open, the destination folder can only be selected from the folder that contains it.
