About bookmark managers
What is a bookmark manager?
A bookmark manager is a tool for managing bookmarks. It works similarly to managing favorites in a browser, but offers many more options.
What additional benefits does a bookmark manager offer compared to browser favorites?
- A bookmark manager is the ideal home page.
You always have instant access to the websites and apps you use.
- Everything clear at a glance.
With a bookmark manager you can arrange your bookmarks much more clearly and manage them much more easily than with browser favorites. Use folders, headings, additional notes and full-text search to organize and find your bookmarks.
- Everything can be easily bookmarked without exception.
App content on mobile devices can practically not be bookmarked without a bookmark manager. With a suitable bookmark manager, this can be done with just a few clicks for most apps.
- Access from all devices.
Browsers store bookmarks on the device on which the browser is running. If you want to access your bookmarks from another device, you need to synchronize the browsers between the devices. However, this does not work with all browsers and only with browsers from the same manufacturer. And if it works, there is no guarantee that your bookmarks will be arranged as usual on every device.
- Not tied to a specific browser.
If you don't want to be tied to a specific browser and use different browsers in parallel, then you have no way to access all browser bookmarks from each browser at the same time. With a bookmark manager you have access to your bookmarks from all browsers. And with an identical look and feel.
- Platform independent.
Technology is constantly evolving. New devices and new software are constantly coming. You want to retain freedom of choice and not be dependent on whether you can keep your bookmarks or not. Nor about how much work it will cost you to transfer and reorganize your bookmarks. With a bookmark manager, you remain 100 percent platform-independent with zero effort!
- Use other people's devices as if they were your own.
A bookmark manager is particularly beneficial if you want to access your bookmarks from a device that doesn't belong to you or that you share with other people. This can be your work computer, family members' devices, friends' devices or devices in an internet cafe. Your bookmarks are not stored on any device and are only visible to you.
- Easily share bookmarks with others.
Simply sending someone a bookmark is rarely possible without any hassle using a browser. Sharing a whole list of bookmarks in particular requires a lot of effort. With a bookmark manager you can easily pack lists of bookmarks into a bookmark file, send them and re-import them into most browsers and bookmark managers.
- Free means one less thing to worry about.
More and more internet services are offering their services, many of which are chargeable. You have to keep track of more and more subscriptions. Debits must be verified. Payment connections are exposed to the risk of unauthorized disclosure. With a free bookmark manager you give away the least amount of personal information and have the fewest worries. And it doesn't cost any money either.
What else can I do with a bookmark manager?
There is a website for almost every problem. But you don't need an entire website for every problem. Subscriptions have to be managed and the operation has to be learned. Often a clever hack is enough and your problem is solved.
Be it watch lists, shopping lists or even task boards. The possibilities of a bookmark manager definitely go far beyond bookmarks. Just try it and be amazed!
