Sqworl is a curation tool that can be used to create visual bookmarks of multiple URLs. By providing a small amount of information related to each link in the bookmark grid, Sqworl is useful for those times when you need enough information to select among multiple options, but not so much information that you are overwhelmed with the page. Sqworl has a nice, clean interface that is useful in many ways.
