Last month we covered a great Chrome extension that makes all of your bookmarks available under a single icon in the Chrome toolbar. I primarily used it for fast access to the bookmarks I'd ordinarily place on the bookmarks toolbar, and by using the extension I was able to hide that toolbar thereby giving me a little extra website-viewing space.

In Google Chrome there are only a few ways you can view your bookmarks. You can have them always displayed in a toolbar that appears below the navigation bar, or they can be displayed as a toolbar within the new tab page. I guess you can also type "chrome://bookmarks" in the address bar to pull up the Bookmark Manager, but I doubt you'd want to do that every time you wanted to open a bookmark.
It's been a while since I've come across a site that REALLY catches my attention. The kind of site where I browse around for a few minutes and immediately decide to create an account without even thinking twice. Pinterest is the latest site that I've declared as an absolute favorite, and one that I think you'll fall in love with as well.
Over the last year I've become a heavy digital note taker. Evernote is definitely my go-to app when it comes to longterm note storage, but what about those quick little snippets that seem worth saving but aren't necessarily something I want cluttering up Evernote? That's where QuotePad comes in form me.
A little while back we wrote about a cool Firefox extension called Snap Links that would let you draw a box around a bunch of hyperlinks with your mouse, and have them all open in new tabs. I loved this extension, but the sad news is that it hasn't received an update in well over two years.
Last year we provided a thorough guide on how you can recover lost bookmarks in Firefox, but as an anonymous reader pointed out some of the tips provided no longer work in Firefox 3. This is because Mozilla revamped the bookmarking system so that it performs better, and is also capable of more advanced functionality such as tagging.
The famed social bookmarking service Delicious uncovered a new design today that is supposed to be faster, include more powerful searching, and be flat out easier on the eyes. Sound exciting? Well, we first got a glimpse of the new design nearly a year ago, but there were some bumps in the road that kept them from getting it released.
Foxmarks has rightfully become an outrageously popular Firefox extension. I love it because I'm able to sync/backup my bookmarks with multiple computers. What makes it really nice, however, is that it integrates right into Firefox's bookmark system. That essentially means you won't even have to think about the extension once you've got it setup.
I can't even count the number of times I've been asked whether there is some way that users can synchronize select bookmarks with their work computer. It's often because they like having access to some of their bookmarks from both home and work, while some they want left exclusively for one of the locations.
Google might not be actively working on the Google Browser Sync extension for Firefox, but that doesn't mean you can't sync your bookmarks, tabs, passwords, and more! Mozilla just released Weave 0.2, which is a major milestone for their homegrown extension.
With every new release of Firefox there's always going to be a few extensions that just don't make the cut. Developers let the extensions fade into the dust as users keep their fingers crossed that someone else will pickup the project. Google Browser Sync is exactly one of those extensions, and it looks like there is very little chance of a resuscitation.
Foxmarks is one of the most used Firefox add-ons raking in nearly 70,000 downloads every week, and up until now it has well over 5 million total downloads. With it you can synchronize your bookmarks between multiple computers, or in my case use it as a backup.
One of my favorite additions to the Firefox 3 browser (currently in Beta) are Smart Bookmarks. There's a good chance that you've played with things in other applications that are similar to Smart Bookmarks.
Back in October 2007 we previewed a new feature in Firefox 3 called Smart Bookmarks. Firefox 3 has a more advanced bookmarking system, and keeps tabs (no pun intended) on the sites that you visit the most. When those two things collide they form what has come to be known as Smart Bookmarks.
How often do you open and save files on your computer? I'm sure that even the most casual users will do it several times throughout the day. Whether it be adding an attachment to an email, uploading a photo to a website, or simply saving a document you've been working on... opening and saving files is a part of our computer-driven lives.
One of the things that I absolutely love about Opera is the Speed Dial that was introduced back in Opera 9.2 almost exactly one year ago. It basically adds thumbnail images of your 9 favorite sites to the page that is displayed when you open a new tab.
Sometimes I can't believe how many bookmarks users have. I've seen people who only bookmark a handful of the sites that they use the most, while others have thousands of bookmarks. I fall somewhere in between with a few hundred bookmarks, but one thing that I've come to realize is how difficult it can be to gain access to all of my bookmarks when I'm on-the-go.
When Apple added iPod Touch/iPhone bookmark synchronization to iTunes they, for whatever reason, didn't include Firefox as an option. As it stands right now you can synchronize your iPhone bookmarks with Safari (available on Windows and Mac) or Internet Explorer (available on Windows).
One of the most valuable pieces of data your browser can hold are your bookmarks. For some people it's not only important to access your bookmarks no matter where you're at, but also from whatever browser you are using. That's why today we are taking a look at some different ways you'll be able to sync bookmarks between the different browsers.
