    Anyone use CoComment or commentful?

    Does anyone use CoComment, commenful, or co.mments?

    For anyone who doesn't know, these are sites that allow you to keep track of comments you leave at other people's blogs. The more I blog myself, these days, the more I find myself getting involved in conversations in other blogs' comments. The problem is, I lost track of those conversations...

    These services are specifically designed to help keep you on top of replies to comments you make... but I wonder which is best/easiest to use.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    I've decided to give CoComment a try. They use a FireFox extension (or bookmarklet, but the extension is way easier)... so far so good.

    I have not tried these yet, I usually just check on my comments the next time I visit the blog. Though I am sure I have missed something somewhere, so I may try this CoComment out.

    I tried co.mments and found it hopeless (i.e. doesn't work very well). Instead, if I find the discussion really interesting, I subscribe to the comment RSS or just revisit the post. Normally though I'm a comment and forget kind of guy

    I've been using CoComment with the Firefox plugin for day and a half now... it doesn't work with all blogs (more like, it will book mark them, but not very quick on retrieving updates, and not at all with some software) ... i.e., it's not as good as vB subscriptions are for forum threads. But... I am still finding it helpful to revisit old comment threads and see what's been added.

    Commentful is ours (should be fully integrated into Blog Flux within the next 48 hours). Our approach has been simplistic, simply notifying you when there are new comments for you to check.

    If you like simpler, Commentful is the way to go. The others are suppoused to be more powerful.
