Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR as bookmark manager?

Thank you for the replies, and sorry about the delay getting back to you. In the meantime I've been trying out alternative software as a bookmark manager, and found a note-taking application which fits my workflow. I will continue to use FARR as a launcher, which is its primary purpose.

You say you don't want to consult browser bookmarks. But the bookmarks need to come from somewhere. They need to be stored somewhere. I'm not aware of FARR being able to store arbitrary information. It mainly queries the file system.

I see. Thank you.

Saving them as aliases would be impracticable I suppose (copy link to FARR box | context menu | add to group alias)?

Find And Run Robot / FARR as bookmark manager?
« on: April 08, 2015, 07:56 PM »
Perhaps using FARR as a bookmark manager is ridiculously easy to do, but I'm having a hard time visualizing how to do it. What I want to do is something like this: type "bsd" (without quotation marks) to filter the search and restrict it to an alias containing multiple local and web BSD links; then type "netbsd" to restrict search further, filtering out FreeBSD and OpenBSD URLs and files, for example; then type "web" to restrict the search to NetBSD-related web and ftp URLs, for example, thus filtering out links to **local** files on computer (NetBSD help files in PDF format, for example); and so on.

I just can't get my head around this, but I'm sure FARR itself can be used as a bookmark manager, without needing a plugin to consult browser bookmarks. I would prefer to keep bookmarks in FARR rather than the browser. The advantage of course is that with FARR you have a single set of bookmarks you can use for a number of browsers - Sleipnir, Pale Moon, etc.

Can this be done, or am I wasting my time? I feel as though I need to chain several "restartsearch" keywords together, but I'm more than likely wrong. I'd appreciate someone throwing a bit of light on this as I'm going around in circles here trying to conceptualize what I want FARR to do and how to do it.
