Making use of bookmarks

Imagine this: you log on to a pc for some good old fashioned internet browsing, as everyone does, double clicking Mozilla Firefox and staring at a blank Google screen. But how soon do you end up where you need to go? Typing out websites by hand, or maybe sifting through a long list of bookmarks you cannot seem to prune seems to be the way casual internet users manage.

There is a much easier way to go about this whole internet business, once you find out where to look. Though you’ll find comparable bookmark systems built into the majority of browsers, the most familiar is the bookmark system from the old windows standard Internet Explorer. Older versions of IE are now not suggested for use on account of wide-ranging security problems, and the most recent IE release has been by and large accepted as a clone of the increasingly favored Firefox. Switching to Firefox is easy: you can download Firefox free at the Mozilla Foundation’s website. If you have bookmarks in another browser such as Internet Explorer, they can readily be imported to your new internet browser.

There are two principal parts of the bookmark feature. The bookmarks bar, probably beneath the address bar, where you place the bookmarks you access most often. Simply visit the website address you wish to bookmark, and drag it into the pre-existing bookmarks bar. Anytime you want to visit that website, TA-DA! It’s always there at the click of a button, with no searching through Google or your own bookmarks required. You can also reorder them however you choose, and have a handy dandy little quick list that pops up whenever you want it, shown on the far right side of the bar with two little arrows.

Naturally, there are plenty of pages we want to bookmark for future reference, but perhaps not for continual or immediate use. This is where the second stage of the bookmark system helps. Instead of laboriously dragging around bookmarks individually, an easy bookmark management system has been placed in most common web browsers. For example, Firefox users just head to the bookmarks menu and choose Manage Bookmarks to pop up a simple folder management system. The options and system are comparable for other web browsers.

After you’ve sorted your bookmarks into your desired folders and subfolders, going with as many as you would like, your customized bookmarks will thereafter appear in your Bookmarks menu. You can additionally use dividers and move bookmarks to your needed order. You can also choose to select “Open all in Tabs” in each bookmarks menu folder, which will, as you might guess, open every link in a new tab, rather than cluttering your workspace with extra windows.

If you take some time organizing your bookmarks, it is going to be easy to implement the system for your later browsing. Whenever you create a new bookmark, you can promptly sort it into any of your existing folders, or create a new folder for it. If you lose a bookmark, it can very easily be moved individually among your folders. I suggest trading up in the event you still rely on Internet Explorer, a Mozilla Firefox free download takes only seconds and will help secure your information and your computer.
