@ognjengt OK, many thanks for the response - it's a shame Chrome extensions don't have a more dev- and user-friendly way of accessing the tab url (it's been quite a while since I worked with extensions, though - you obviously have much more recent experience than me! :-)) What you say sounds fair enough, though, so I will install the extension and play around a little.

Re the data privacy - yeah, it's definitely worth looking into sooner rather than later, particularly with GDPR. Remember that you have url data tied to users - I am not sure how much this qualifies under the new 'personal data' rules, but I'd check it out if I were in your position (if you have not already)

Anyway, once again, Capsulelink is a great idea, and one that I look forward to using. Nice work!
@ognjengt ok thanks. My initial concern was triggered by the permissions request on the Chrome extension (access data on all websites). Perhaps you *need* this in order to store URLs, but obviously, it worried me that a company without any *easily found* related info had this level of access. In addition, once I joined the service, I couldn't find any info on data stuff and privacy (and what happens to my data if I leave - can I export it?) Maybe this info was available on the sign-up page, but in my enthusiasm to sign up, I failed to notice :-)

Oh, and one unrelated issue: I was unable to sign up on mobile - it seemed successful, but I didn't receive an email notification (it was fine on desktop)

Otherwise, as I say, the service seems like a fine idea!
@5tuarth Thank you for your detailed answer! About the chrome extension accessing data on all websites, I think that is just a chrome scary message, because they don't have specific messages like "Access urls on a webpage". But that is the only thing it does, it just needs access to url of a webpage to be able to store it. None of the data is compromised or tracked in any way.
That's a good point you have about data privacy, and I definitely have not paid much attention to it, since I considered it would be a simple web tool for a quick use. Right now, there is not an option to delete data when you leave, but I will work on that, and I wanted to add the export to json / csv for some time now, just can't find the time from other projects I am working on.

Once again, thank you for your answer, and there is definitely still things I should improve and work on in the future.

It looks like it could be great for storing sets of related links, but I'm a bit concerned about the lack of info regarding security/data storage/etc...
@5tuarth Hello Stuart, I would like to know what are you concerned about, so I can answer your questions. Thanks in advance!
