Bookmark Management Software for a New Generation

Aug 17, 2007
Keeping all of our bookmarks organized and synchronized between computers can be difficult. A new generation of bookmark management software is on the horizon to make managing your bookmarks easier and more effective than ever.

Bookmarks are one of the most wonderful tools that Internet browsers have to offer. Keeping records of our favorite web sites and letting us get back to them with the click of a button. Bookmarking is easy to do in your web browser, just click a button (or hit Ctrl-d) and bam, the web page you are currently visiting is bookmarked.

If you're the type of person who likes to have organized bookmarks but also likes to use more than one browser or utilizes more than one computer, you might find bookmarking a little more difficult. How do you keep bookmarks synchronized between browsers or computers? A new generation of bookmark software designed to be your one stop bookmark source might just be the answer.

Rather than bookmarking your pages through a single web browser, these external bookmark management programs work separately from any browser. Once the software is installed bookmarking is often just as easy, but the bookmarks aren't just saved for a single browser. Instead they are saved into an external bookmarking program that then exports its bookmarks to whatever browser you happen to be using, whether it is Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Firefox or any other web browser.

Besides this sharing of data between different browsers that are located on the same computer, there are also software programs that allow you to synchronize bookmarks between computers, either using the same browsers or different browsers. Different software programs can attack the problem of computer synchronization in different ways.

If the computers you wish to synchronize your bookmarks on both reside on the same network, it is often a piece of cake to keep bookmarks synchronized with a program designed to transfer data over the LAN. You can set up automatic synchronization routines to operate once a day or once a week. You can also set it up to synchronize whenever you tell it to. There are many different possibilities for bookmark synchronization.

If your computers don't reside on the same network, other software available can work through the internet. Bookmarks are uploaded to a special server on the Internet, from which you can synchronize your bookmarks from one computer to the other through your internet connection. This is great, for example, for synchronizing bookmarks between your home and office computers that often times are not set up on a personal local area network.

These bookmark managers oftentimes also make the process of bookmark management in general even easier than software included with web browsers. Utilizing simple, intuitive and user-friendly interfaces, they allow you to organize your bookmarks as well as change bookmarks quickly and easily. If you're not satisfied with your current bookmark managing software, these sorts of bookmark management solutions could just be the answer you've been waiting for. Combining ease of use with functionality, they are a great way to keep your bookmarks up to date with ease and style.
