Hi, I need a recommendation from you. I could need a site where I can store my bookmarks.

If I am at work and find interesting links, which I do not want to follow at work, I usually open Google Keep to make a note.

But I would like a more straight forward method, some Browser Plugin or Bookmarklet for easy select-click-store working ethos.


Any ideas?   TIA!  :Thmbsup:

I wouldn't claim it's the best but it's free and there is a bookmarklet you can add to your browsers' toolbars: https://www.google.com/bookmarks/

Isn't that what Pinterest was designed for? Or Pocket (which is built directly into Firefox these days)?

Or the evernote webclipper.  You can choose to store a selection, the page, or just the bookmark.  There are a lot of them out there... and I haven't decided on an option totally.

Delicious and Pinboard are two that haven't been mentioned.

You can also use IFTT to link some of them to create the solution that you want.

Hi friends, many thanks for the recommendations  :-*

Me think, https://www.google.com/bookmarks/ , will do it for me.

I found this bookmarklet to open GooBoo into a new tab in my FireFox browser:

Code: Javascript [Select]
  1. javascript:(function(){var%20a=window,b=document,c=encodeURIComponent,d=a.open("http://www.google.com/bookmarks/mark?op=edit&output=popup&bkmk="+c(b.location)+"&title="+c(b.title),"bkmk_popup","left="+((a.screenX||a.screenLeft)+10)+",top="+((a.screenY||a.screenTop)+10)+",height=420px,width=550px,resizable=1,alwaysRaised=1");a.setTimeout(function(){d.focus()},300)})();
My Source: http://googlesystem....le-bookmarklets.html

First, I had this, but this used the same tab to show GooBoo and I had to use backspace twice after that:
Code: Javascript [Select]
  1. ^javascript:location.href='http://www.google.com/bookmarks/mark?op=edit&output=popup&bkmk='+encodeURIComponent(window.location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title)

Also on the above mentioned post from 2007 I found the hint to force to login as another account: &authuser=1 (don't know if that still works)



I will try-out the other mentions as well, thank you too  :Thmbsup:

But GooBoo is what I searched for: easy-peace, no blinky, no another account/loogin, portable, no tool or plugin - just a JS bookmarklet. THX  :D :Thmbsup:

It looks like my bookmarklet has a slightly different code. I can't remember where I got it from, it's been a while. But it works across all my devices:

Code: Javascript [Select]
  1. javascript:(function(){var a=window,b=document,c=encodeURIComponent,d=a.open("https://www.google.com/bookmarks/mark?op=edit&output=popup&bkmk="+c(b.location)+"&title="+c(b.title),"bkmk_popup","left="+((a.screenX||a.screenLeft)+10)+",top="+((a.screenY||a.screenTop)+10)+",height=510px,width=550px,resizable=1,alwaysRaised=1");a.setTimeout(function(){d.focus()},300)})();
