7. Set Up and Use Bookmarks

Chapter 7. Set Up and Use Bookmarks

Bookmarks are, at heart, simple things: pointers to pages you want to revisit. But their flexibility—the different ways you can store and access them, how they interact with tabs—make them far from simple tools.

I used to keep very few bookmarks on my bookmarks bar, and most of the rest in what amounted to a big pile (nothing in folders or subfolders), with little or no renaming of my bookmarks from their default, often long-winded, titles. I bookmarked a lot of sites, yet rarely used the bookmarks to go back to them because the lack of organization made it too much of a bother—I wound googling to find them again.

Once I started exploring bookmark options and discovered their versatility and power, however, I was converted—and now I’m proselytizing. Knowing how convenient bookmarks have made my browsing has encouraged me to become, and stay, organized—a philosophy I have yet to apply to my closets. Naming a bookmark and putting it in a certain folder when I first save it has become second nature to me in a very short time. (I still have a catch-all bookmark folder for when I’m in a hurry or don’t know exactly where something should go—just like I have a junk drawer in the kitchen. And in the dining room. And in almost every other room.)
