Bookmark improvements in

Today we rolled out a few improvements to bookmarks, including an import from Instapaper and Pocket. This is meant to complement’s bookmark archiving, where archives a copy of a web page and allows making highlights in it. Like the archiving and highlights, the import feature is for Premium subscribers.

I’ve personally wanted to consolidate my bookmarks to, because I’ve had some things in Instapaper and some newer posts in is not designed as a replacement for every feature in other read-later services, but instead a quick way to save links and either reference them later or start a new microblog post from a highlight.

To learn more about bookmark archiving and highlights, check out the video in this post on the news blog from when we announced 2.0.

I’ve also improved other aspects of bookmarks, like faster loading, paging through many hundreds or thousands of bookmarks, and better profile icons for domain names that are added to
