"A good Idea, with a bad execution"

What do you like about Glasp?

The Idea behind Glasp is great, you can markdown content from the web with great easy and have it consolidated in the same place.
Glasp has a good tagging system and it's easy to share.

What do you dislike about Glasp?

It's too frustrating that I cannot use on any site I want.
Glasp deliberately block us from saving from some websites, and don't even allow us to add manually, so some things are simple unsavable and it forces me to use another tool and make my database fragmented and inneficient.
If the devs fix this this tool will be the best one in the market, but until there its only marginally usefull.
And the faq and help tools says it to prevent me from saving sensitive data, as if I was a kid.
