What can be done about chaos in your bookmarks?

Feb 19, 2009
chaos and favorites star

Two troubles of a real woman:
she has nothing to wear and no vacant space in the wardrobe


A real web surfer faces the similar problem: the quantity of bookmarks is innumerable but it's impossible to find anything in them. What can be done about it?
Today it's difficult to amaze somebody with telling about the tools for bookmarks management: any browser has this possibility by nature, and a great many on-line resources fight for providing this service. Nevertheless, when you (once a year) want to pick up anything from there you notice that after a number of hopeless clicks it's easier to use a search engine instead.
Below are some fresh tips on how to manage favorites, some experienced first-hand, some found on-line.

In browser: the idea is in sorting the bookmarks not by subject (like video, tools, photoshop etc) but by their significance:

  • Current: Here are everything connecting with your current project(s)

  • Periodic: For social networks you participate in, dictionaries, on-line shops, etc.

  • Constant: Your own site(s), your girl-friend's photo album etc

  • Just for fun: Most worthy of the useless in the web to astonish the friends anytime.

Sure that the choice of the folders' names and number is individual while the main thing is the principle of significance. Thus, you store in the browser only the most necessary links.

On-line services exist for all the rest:
  • Loved by everybody Delicious can be easily optimized abit: besides usual topic tags, you can add "urgent tags", beginning with digits (like 2read, 2process, 2check etc). Then after A-Z sorting they appear at the top accordingly. And if you are too serious about your riches accumulated in Delicious over a long many of years, you can use this free script for dead links deleting/editing. Then after A-Z sorting they appear at the top accordingly.

  • Firefox users can handily combine Delicious with Read it later: the first one for constant values and the second for one-off links

  • The next tool is for those surfers who suffer from sporadic internet disconnection: it's relatively new Evernote, already reviewed many times. The gist of it is that instead of saving the URLs you save the highlighted page extracts. With the help of its desktop extension you can access your favorites whether online or off.

However, speaking seriously, is there any use in fanatical bookmarks collecting? Actually perhaps just a dozen of them are used constantly. The reality is that in most cases a saved bookmark means a postponed unnecessary action. When you drop upon something really useful or interesting as a rule you read it at once. At the same time bookmarks sorting may take hours. Think about and don't forget to bookmark this post ;-)

Michael / Hi Frank,Have you ever seen a Kindle screen that looks coplletemy fine yet the image on the screen is all split at the bottom? It's like a cracked screen except that the screen is coplletemy fine, just that parts of a page from a book are frozen while the rest of the screen is fine. It's only on the bottom half. My girlfriend owns it and she went to put it on charge and just noticed the screen is looking all mangled. We're wondering what to do. Great blog, will definitely try the hard reset after it has charged.
