Odd little thought – can you create a stripped-down version of Tabbles that only accepts links? Via your neat little browser button, for instance. No files, doesn’t ‘see’ your drives, just tags your browser links. Small, fast, portable.
Basically just a bookmark filer, I guess, but perhaps an interesting way to introduce folks to the program? No idea what kind of software is out there already, was just a thought.

well, technically it’s possible, but I fail to see the purpose of such a stripping down… it wouldn’t be faster nor lighter, it would just have some stuff hidden.
There are a bunch of bookmarks managers, most of them are web-services and browser plugins.
Portable: we’re working on that! 🙂

My thought was something tiny and self-contained, all but link functionality stripped out. More of an advertisement/toe-in-the-door sort of app. ("Just think what the full version could do for you!")
As I said, just a thought, didn’t know the feasability or useability. Thanks for the feedback on it.
(oh yeah, waiting patiently on the portable version! The browser integration button is keeping me occupied for now just fine. 😉 )

I get your point, but unfortunately things don’t work that way… strip-it down would actually be a huge work as the most of the GUI should be modified (i.e.: when you drag’n’drop a file into a tabble, something else should happen, like a pop-up or something…).
But anyway, very very soon we’re moving to Freemium, meaning that instead of 30days trial there will be a version that allows you to tag up to 1000 files, and then starts giving you a nag-screen (but doesn’t prevent you to tag more stuff)… I guess it’s even better this way, isn’t it? 🙂
