Con Development is stagnant, several features have been broken for years
There's a lot to like about this product, but little patience should be had for people that try to charge money for something that appears to be just a hobby. The e-mail and RSS feed widgets have worked only sporadically for nearly two years. Calls for support are met with a hard sell for the premium edition.
Con Should sell itself as a start page, because they are a bookmark service thats lousy at bookmarks.
Be careful if you Curate Bookmarks or even just have a bunch. First there is a file size limit that is pretty low for your Bookmark HTML import. Second If you have or gain to many book marks even if you paid for the pro. You wont be able to export them. Third Customer service Is beyond terrible, indifferent, lazy, and full of crap.

Con Poor UI
