Bookmark manager works with Chrome

Google launched the browser wars with Chrome. However, “Bookmark support is still very limited in Chrome and it lacks a full bookmark management interface.” After doing some work, we found a way to work with Chrome at last.

Because Firefox addon is not supported by Chrome yet. We need use Bookmarklet to add the bookmark from Chrome. The steps are quite simple.

1. Goto the url: http://www.desksware.com/bookmarklet.htm

2. Drag the link from web page to the bar.
create bookmarklet with Chrome

3. Click Add Power Favorites to add the new bookmark. There will be a message box to ask you if you’d like to launch an application, just click “Launch application” to continue.

Power Favorites 1.6.1 released

This is a maintenance release with adds two new functionality: the ability to add new bookmark by bookmarklet and  sync folder automatically when adding a new bookmark .

  • – NEW: Auto Sync the folder when you add new bookmark.
  • – NEW: You can create a new bookmark by click the  Add to Power Favorites bookmarklet on your bookmark toolbar.
  • – FIX: The export to Firefox, Opera did not work correctly.
  • – FIX: Import from Firefox did not work correctly.
  • – IMPROVED: Auto sort the bookmark list by create date when you select a tag or folder.

Many people like to collect the bookmarks. But when the bookmark amount grows, it is hard to manage them. It is a waste if you can’t find any useful bookmarks quickly. The more bookmarks you add, the less you can find.  There are three ways to improve the productivity when you surf the web .

1. Use tags. Tags are keywords which are related to the content. Most of social bookmark sites take this way to help user for keeping their bookmarks. ( Del.icio.us, Blogmarks, etc). One advantage for tags is that you do not need experience the pain to consider which folder you should put the bookmark in. Just save the bookmark with the related tags you are familiar with, and you can pick them easily again.

2. Use Recent and Hot List. As 80-20 rule , people often use 80% of time to browse 20% bookmarks. Bookmarks which are added recently is a part of the 20% . And you should put all the bookmarks you access frequently in a hot list folder. So you can easy find them.

3. Use Hotkey. Keyboard is much faster than mouse. You can use CTRL+ALT+A To launch the bookmark manager. And you can customize the hotkey in the Option window. You can use up, down, right, left arrow to switch the focus among the search box, the tag list and the results list too.
