Furl

Furl, Furled, Furling

"I used to tell people that Furl was a site for saving your favorites/bookmarks online. That is still true, but it is more than that. It is your personal web site where you can store bookmarks and archive web pages. You can also learn what web sites others find interesting. Furl gives you 5 gigabytes of web space to store pages. Furl allows you to save anything you view on the web. You can also use it to share what you read on the web with other teachers or with your students. You can use it for many educational purposes" Jim Wenzloff, 7 February 2005
