Iterasi, the dynamic bookmarking tool we told you about earlier this year, has just announced a new release that finally brings their service to the Mac. Previously, Iterasi was available on Windows machines (IE & Firefox), but Iterasi will now also work on Macs via a Firefox plugin. In addition, the much-anticipated scheduling service has also been released.
What makes Iterasi unique is that, unlike other bookmarking tools that just save a link, Iterasi captures a web page at a particular moment in time. This makes Iterasi ideal for saving pages that change over time or pages that disappear after you navigate away (like a receipt for an online purchase).
1) In today's release, Mac users can start to use Iterasi by installing the provided Firefox plugin. The plugin supports both Firefox 2 and 3 and works on OS 10.5 and up.
2) However, all Iterasi users will be excited about the new scheduler service. Like the name implies, the scheduler allows you to have Iterasi notarize a page on whatever scheduled basis you configure - either daily, weekly, or monthly. There are so many different ways to use the scheduler. The Iterasi team suggest you could use to capture retail sites with daily specials, for example. You could also use it in an investigative way to track a site that you think might be changing its messaging over time. You could even use it to track the changes on a site that doesn't offer a news feed for you to subscribe to. We're sure you can think of million ways to use the scheduler - those are just a few to get you started.
3) Another new feature launched today are "public pages." Each Iterasi user has a Public Webpage created for them called "My Public Pages" in the Iterasi viewer. As you save pages, you can mark them as private to keep them from being added to the Public Page. Anything else is saved to the Public Page where you can share it with friends who can then subscribe to it via an RSS reader or by using the provided widget.
4) One last feature made available just for Twitter users is the introduction of a short URL service. Using the domain http://sqrl.it (short for Squirrel It - since you "squirrel" away web pages with Iterasi), you can now tweet links to your Iterasi pages.
