I'm looking for web service or an app (or whatever) for iphone 5 for bookmarking urls from google chrome or safari browser. I don't want to use bookmarks integrated into these browsers.

Does anybody know something simple and easy to use service / app with web frontend where i can work with these bookmarks? E.g. bookmarking via e-mail message is probably the simplest way for me.

I'm quite pleased with Pinboard. There are a number of browser extensions and apps that work with the API.

This is not exactly what you're describing, but have you considered Instapaper? It has a simple javascript bookmarklet to make saving pages from Safari or Chrome easy, it has an app and a web interface that are both very solid, and it gives you stripped-down versions of every bookmark, for easier reading, as well as normal links. Could end up being what you're looking for.

You can try out Pocket. It comes with browser extension which enables you to save your url to Pocket and also a native app on iOS for your reading pleasure.
