Introducing Embed.ly, Cortex and Readon.ly

Embedly makes beautiful use of web standards. Cortex is still a little rough around the edges, but it's worth trying for a while, though. Indeed, there are many tools to make the Internet browser better.

The Internet browser is a beautiful thing. But it can get better with proper tools like Embed.ly, Cortex and Readon.ly. Embed.ly displays embedded previews from 165 publishing platforms of any links posted on Twitter. Cortex, on the other hand, is a sharing tool that posts links to Twitter, Facebook, Instapaper and Tumblr in a fast way. How fast can Cortex work? Just click and hold your mouse for two seconds, a circle shows up, and you’re on your way to sharing a link. Meanwhile, Readon.ly is a simple bookmarklet that ease up your link sharing with fly out quotes and tags. It’s like Sniply in a different design element.

The development of Embed.ly, Cortex and Readon.ly clearly shows that there’s a lot of room for creation and progress in the field of curation and sharing. Do you know other browser tools for link sharing? Let your voice be heard by leaving a comment below.
