Well, the new update for Scoop.it has killed Scoop.it for me. The new posting form just never loads in Firefox — and I have AdBlock and NoScript disabled at Scoop.it. The old Scoop.it browser bookmarklet has never worked for me in Firefox, so I can’t use that either.

In the Google Chrome browser, the Scoop.it post interface does appear, but the control graphics mysteriously fail to load, and there’s no snippet of text from the article…

So I’m now forced to use the Pale Moon browser, where the new posting interface does work. But the new post interface is just so un-intuitive compared to the old one.

Why do great Web services (Flickr, etc) feel compelled to ruin themselves by messing around with what works and what people are familiar with, thus forcing many veteran users to look seriously at alternatives? If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.

I’m now actively on the lookout for a Scoop.it alternative. Suggestions are welcome.
