Bookmark Sorter Is An Automation Tool For Sorting Bookmarks [Firefox]

We've reviewed a lot of bookmarking tools for Chrome and in comparison found few for Firefox that offered the same or relatively same features as them. Bookmark Sorter is a Firefox add-on that outshines every Chrome bookmark extension and evens the playing feild. It's also yet another great example of how Firefox has very few but very excellent and unmatched add-ons available in its repository. Bookmark Sorter lets you save rules for sorting bookmarks. It also lets you organize your bookmarks more easily with its UI. You can define rules simply using text and the add-on will search both the title and URL of a bookmark and sort it according to your preferences. The rules can be saved and loaded for execution at any time. Read More

Get Fast Folder Search & Selection When You Save A Bookmark [Chrome]

I recently cleaned up the fantastic mess that was my bookmarks and I have been trying to keep them clean ever since. In that endeavour, I've added many new folders with the strangest names just so I know what links I've saved to them when I look at the bookmarks bar a month or so from now. The problem is, when I first organized my bookmarks, I was able to sort folders by name. The bookmarks manager, and subsequently the bookmarks bar doesn't automatically sort new folders by the same convention so all the new folders I've added appear in no order. This is problematic because I can't easily find the right folder from the (very) long list of folders I've created which is why Fast Bookmark is my new favorite Chrome extension. It lets me search for a folder in my bookmarks and filters the results as I type them. As opposed to opening the long list of folders, I can search for them. Read More

How To Organize Your Bookmarks With A Little Elbow Grease

Bookmarking a link is the easiest way to save anything since it's quick and involves no tool other than your own browser. Unfortunately, bookmarks, because they are so easy to create often end up being misused until all you have left is a big clutter of links. My bookmarks library was no different; it was full of folders nested in folders. The folders were poorly named and usually named to suit the 'occasion' I needed a particular link for instead of by topic. I had duplicate bookmarks by the dozens and what was most disappointing is that it was hard to find the right bookmark because I'd organized them so poorly. Commence operation Clean Up. Read More

Pine Is A Beautiful Bookmarks Manager Housed Entirely In Your Browser [Chrome]

My bookmarks are a mess; partly because I'm lazy and don't always attempt to keep the links I save organized but also because Chrome's bookmarks manager doesn't offer a very functional interface as far as bookmark organization is concerned. Pine is a Chrome extension that adds an aesthetically pleasing and fully functional bookmarks manager to your browser. It lives entirely in your browser and has no service working behind it. Not only can you see the many links in your bookmarks library but you can organize them, add tags, rename them, and move them to a different folder. Read More

Hush Is A Password Protected Bookmarks Manager For Private Browsing [Chrome]

Hush is a secret stash for your bookmarks; to be exact it's an extension made for bookmarks you want to save in Incognito mode because it lets you password protect the links you save. The saved links are not saved to the default bookmarks manager. The extension has a very neat and clean interface for viewing and editing bookmarks that you've saved and it lets you import or export them, securely. The extension works only in Incognito mode and that's actually the downside of the extension because it's something a user might want to use instead of the default bookmarks manager. Read More

Dewey Offers A Pinterest-Like Bookmark Manager For Chrome With Smarter Search

Chrome has come a long way since its inception in 2008. The web browser, which is popular for providing a speedy web experience, lightweight design and a ton of features, is also the one with more extensions and apps in its arsenal than any other web browser on the market, offering several good solutions for any major requirement. For example, if you find it tedious to manage your Chrome bookmarks via the integrated Bookmarks Manager, you'll find many worthy alternatives on the Chrome Web Store, one of which is Dewey Bookmarks. This Chrome app is an alternative bookmark manager with a Pinterest-like interface that’s both user-friendly and functional, bookmark searching, tagging and sorting. Details after the break.

View Important Or Urgent Bookmarks On Chrome’s New Tab Page With OX

Yesterday, Google Chrome’s New Tab page just got one of its biggest revamps to date. That part of the browser has always been able to garner plenty of attention owing to the fact that you see it each time you open a new tab to launch a website, one of your installed Chrome apps, or one of your recently accessed sites. Developers have come up with many Chrome extensions aimed at the New Tab page, and we have even compiled a list of many such add-ons. Out of all the extensions of this type, a few deal with aesthetics, while others fill the page with information you might find useful. OX belongs to the second of these categories, and although it is nowhere near as shiny and feature-rich as Onefeed, we are sure you will find yourself using it more and more with the passage of time. OX replaces Chrome’s homepage with a minimalistic list of bookmarks saved in the browser. This is useful for anyone looking to ensure that none of their saved bookmarks are ever really forgotten.

Sync Chrome & Firefox Bookmarks With iCloud On Windows

It’s been a fantastic month for Apple fans. Last week’s biggest Apple news was the highly anticipated release of the iOS 7 update. And this week, the folks at Cupertino have begun dropping more, smaller additions to its software lineup, which now includes an updated iCloud Control Panel for Windows that lets you synchronize Safari bookmarks between iOS devices and Mozilla Firefox as well as Google Chrome. While this feature was already available for Internet Explorer for quite sometime, it’s good to see the app’s expansion on to additional platforms. The iCloud Bookmarks extension enables you to save bookmarks on your iPhone or iPad, and have everything synced to desktop versions of Chrome or Firefox. Details after the jump. Read More

Keeeb Offers A Softboard For Bookmarking & Organizing Web Clippings

We often find loads of interesting content on the internet that we want to bookmark for later. The bookmarking feature found in almost every web browser is handy enough for saving websites links and URLS, but if you want bookmark certain pieces of information such as videos, photos or even a famous quote, the browser bookmark cannot be of much help here. That’s why services like Clipboard was created to get the job done but unfortunately, this immensely useful service was discontinued when Salesforce acquired it in early May and shut it down it for good. Since then, Keeeb has been cited by many as one of the better alternatives to Clipboard, as it has picked up the gauntlet and allows you to save any piece of content on the web. Lets take a closer look at it after the jump. Read More

Get A Proper Bookmarks Bar Below The Omnibar In Chrome For iOS

When Google Chrome was new to the App Store, Cydia tweaks kept getting released to take the browser closer to perfection. The flow has been somewhat stemmed now that the app has been around for quite a while, but that doesn't mean there is no room for improvement. The Chrome app resembles the desktop variant of the browser a great deal, but there are still some fairly obvious omissions. The bookmarks bar, for example, is nowhere to be found, and whenever you have to access your bookmarks, you either have to move away from the current page, or open a new tab to get to them. Wouldn't it be just perfect if Chrome gets a bookmarks bar that is visible everywhere, but still isn't overly intrusive? While the feature might get added to the app officially in a future update, you can get it right now if you have a jailbroken iPhone. BMarks Bar – Chrome is a new Cydia tweak that adds a customizable bookmarks bar to the Chrome app. Not only does the bar have all your bookmarks, but it is even capable of showing folders below the address bar at all times.

Onefeed Turns Chrome New Tab Page Into An RSS & Social Feed Reader

Since we finally saw the end of Google Reader a couple of weeks ago, many of us have been searching for an alternative. Not only has it given us the chance to discover something that could be better than Google Reader, but it has also given developers an opportunity to create some great RSS applications. One such app that we recently came across is Onefeed. It’s a Google Chrome app that turns your New Tab page into a place for combining your social media accounts including Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Instagram with RSS in order to let you keep a tab on all your important content in one place. In short, the extension provides you a seamless way to access RSS and social networks from Google Chrome. Read More

dotdotdot Brings Its Article Curating, Sharing & Reading App To iOS

Whenever I come across a long article, its title, introductory paragraph and some highlighted snippet are three things that help me decide whether or not I'm going to it all the way through, even past the second paragraph. If someone who I know to have good taste in reading recommends something, I'll give it a read too, but these three factors still decide if it's worth reading all the way. dotdotdot Reader is an iOS app for the web service of the same name that lets you read articles others have recommended, highlighting the parts of an article they found particularly interesting. Apart from being a great reading tool with its own built-in web browser, that app also lets you manage your eBooks and works independently of other services. The app is quite good as a reader too; it strips away all unnecessary content, leaving behind only the text in an easy-to-read layout. Read More

Reading List Brings Cross-Device Synced Bookmarking To Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 has brought back the Start button and that’s reason enough to celebrate for many, but this new version has also brought with it some new apps, of which Reading List is something a lot of us are bound to love. This new app works best with Internet Explorer set as your default browser, but will also work if you’re using a different one. Reading List is a standalone app that you can save links to from the Share Charm from other apps. The saved links can then be read later. To most users, this might seem to be a Pocket-like service but it mimics the reading list  feature in Safari to some extent, with the exception that it can work with any browser, making it much better. Other than being able to work with other apps and any browser, the app is pretty basic in the sense that your links cannot be organized into folders, nor categorized in any other way. A search bar within the app makes the process of finding the right one pretty easy though. Read More

Collectably Offers A Virtual Pinboard For Collaborative Bookmarking

We’ve covered quite a number of online bookmarking services before, including Dragdis and Favebucket, which are both amazing for how they integrate with your browser. Collectably is a service with a similar concept, except for that it’s built for collaboration rather than just bookmarking. The service is very basic at the moment; Chrome users can install the Collectably extension and use it to add links to their ‘boards’ while others can use the Collectably bookmarklet to do the same. Links are organized into boards, i.e., folders and you can add collaborators to those boards who can edit it by adding more links or removing the existing ones. Read More

Reg Is A Windows Registry Editor Alternative With Bookmarks & Better Search

Windows Registry is a central database that carries information regarding configuration settings for user profiles, applications, system settings and utilities, device drivers etc. in a single, well sorted and organized information hive. All versions of Windows are shipped with the Registry. Even though it’s quite genuinely useful, the native Registry Editor tool does feels fairly lacking when it comes to its limited features; it seems quite tedious to browse and doesn't offer a way to quickly jump to a certain registry key or location. The open source program Reg has come forward to solve this nuisance. It not only allows you to quickly hop to your desired registry key, but also lets you bookmark registry locations, and offers a few additional features. Read More

Easily Collect, Save, Organize & Share Online Content With FaveBucket

A while back we reviewed a very impressive service called Dragdis that allows you to collect online content - something that you could also accomplish with an Evernote account and the Evernote web clipper. The concept of collecting content online certainly isn't new but what I love about the service is its interface and how easier it is to use compared to the Evernote Web Clipper. FaveBucket is another such service that works via a bookmarklet and lets you save web pages to 'buckets'. A similar concept to Dragdis, FaveBucket allows you to secure your saved content by creating a 4-digit pin for accessing it. You can share what you've saved with friends and family via email. It can import content saved to Clipboard (the service will shut down at the end of this month) and will hopefully add support for other services as well.

Quickly Access & Manage Google Bookmarks From The Firefox Toolbar

Despite the decrease in popularity of online bookmarking services after major browsers like Chrome and Firefox started including native bookmark syncing, sGoogle Bookmarks is still used by many, especially those who have accumulated a huge collection of bookmarks on the service over the years. Since the next step to accessibility is, of course, convenience and Google Bookmarks' own web interface isn't exactly as convenient as it could have been, it makes sense to use a third-party browser add-on for easily managing all your Google Bookmarks. If you're using Mozilla Firefox, the Fess Google Bookmark Extension can take care of that for you, meaning you'll no longer have to even visit the Google Bookmarks website to manage them. Read More

Mark Webpages As Read, Reading Or Read Later & Add Notes To Them In Chrome

Did it ever happen to you that you were surfing the net and came across an interesting piece, but vaguely felt you’d read it before? Perhaps you really did, but can’t recall when. If you’d like to be sure you have (or haven’t) read a certain webpage before, try Chrome’s helpful little Mark As Read extension. You can mark any online content as ‘Read’, ‘Reading’ or ‘Read later’ so that upon returning to it later, you recognize it instantly as such. You can also unmark its current status or switch it to a different one. If the world wide web is your book, this neat extension  conveniently serves as a bookmark, market and highlighter for your unread, read and to-read sections. Read More

View Recent Bookmarks Sorted By Date & Time In Google Chrome

Bookmarks can be divided into two types: those for sites you want to refer back to in the immediate future, and those for sites you want to keep around pretty much forever. Now, common sense dictates that older bookmarks, the ones you’re storing, should appear at the bottom and newer, more recent ones that you’re probably going to view earlier, should appear nearer the top, for ease of access. Firefox has the coveted “Recently Bookmarked” viewer in its bookmarks panel, but not Chrome. That is, not until Recent Bookmarks for Chrome, an extension that adds a button for quickly viewing your latest bookmarks in a list divided by day and date. Read More
