Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Easily accessible
Pro Easy to use
Pro Official Android app
If you have need to manage or organize, share or export your bookmarks on the go, Atavi offers an Android app which provides a quick and easy means to do so. The web page interface on mobile is fine for visiting your bookmarks, but the app brings the smooth drag-and-drop and long press inputs that are needed to easily rearrange or share your collection.
Pro Search engine integration
At the top of your Atavi bookmarks page on each browser tab is a search field, which can be set to pass your query to Google, Bing, Yahoo!, or Yandex. There's no need to lose the familiar new tab page search field when switching to keeping your bookmarks with Atavi.
Pro Unique implementation as a browser homepage
Atavi is able to be used in almost any web browser and platform because it bypasses the native bookmark management, instead providing access to your links through a responsive web page. With every new tab opened, your bookmarks appear with all the grouping and sorting options you expect from the native bookmark manager.
Pro Full five-browser support
Atavi is developed to render properly on both the desktop and mobile versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari.
Pro Stable browser extensions for Firefox, Chrome, and Opera
Atavi's browser extensions further simplify use of the service by ensuring that new tabs display your Atavi bookmarks and providing a one-click mechanism for importing bookmarks you already have in that browser into your Atavi account.
Pro Multiple layouts to choose from
Three possible layouts are available on-the-fly for your bookmarks page: traditional speed dial boxes, multi-column list, and a detail view with one bookmark per row which displays the URL as well.
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.
Con No support for multi-level folders structure
Atavi.com does not support a multi-level folders structure. When importing such structures, all sub-folders will be placed at one level. Folders with the same name will be merged into one.
