Capture & Share Interesting Web Pages Using Monkiri

Monkiri is a user friendly tool that enables a web user to capture and share interesting web pages or part of a web page with others. Monkiri lets you grab any part of the web page and instantly publish it either on your Monikri blog or send it to other blogs. It currently supports the two most popular weblog softwares; Blogger and Wordpress.

Literally Monkiri means the Japanese art of paper cutting. Newspaper clippings are always a means amongst any knowledge enthusiasts to store a piece of information. In the web world Monkiri meets the same need. Monkiri lets one read and write blogs about any item published on a website.

With the help of Monkiri button a user can snap required portion of the item on the web page and blog it. The user can then give a comprehensive review of the same and add on his comments.


The ‘View Entries’ feature from Monkiri menu enables other interested users to visit the blogged item and comment on the same. In this way everyone visiting that page can review the comments giving one a potentially large audience. Over a period of time users can build up an online journal of articles of interest. In other words, Monkiri makes blogging and sharing a simple affair.

One of the main features of Web 2.0 is the democratization of the web where web users are no longer content to be passive observers of information that has been fed to them – they want to be active participants. Monkiri has been developed to take this advantage of Web 2.0.

You can download Firefox extension (Windows XP/Vista, Mozilla Firefox 1.5 or higher) as well as IE (Windows XP/Vista, Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher) versions.

To use this service, you have to create an account which is free.
