If you are tired of looking at the same old browser homepage, give “AllMyFaves” a try… “AllMyFaves” is a compilation of top sites in a nice visual and categorized order.
Features I like in this new utility is the ability to export the bookmarks list to csv/tab-delimited/html/xml file, copy the bookmarks to the clipboard and then paste them to Excel or other spreadsheet application, and open a Web site from your bookmark in your Smartphone by using QR Code.Thank you for visiting
Tech News for You
WebBrowserBookmarksView is a simple tool for Windows that displays the details of all bookmarks stored in Chrome and Firefox Web browsers. For every bookmark, the following information is displayed: Title, URL, Folder Name, Folder Path, Position, Created Time, Modified Time (Only Firefox), ID, Guid, Web Browser, and Bookmarks File.
Bookmarks Sidebar is a Google Chrome browser extension that allows you to access and manage your bookmarks by clicking on the left side of your screen. The sidebar can also be set to auto appear when you move the mouse pointer to the left side of the screen; AND, if you don’t want it on the left side of the screen you can change it to the right side. There are other configurable settings, as well.
After messing around with this extension for a while now; especially, on my Chromebook, I have found this extension to be one that I cannot live without. This is something that should already be built into Chrome. I love the idea that I am now making full (easily accessible) use of my bookmarks and have found that I am now organizing my bookmarks more.
If you use Google Chrome, I highly recommend this extension. Highly rated in the Google Chrome Store
I not sure how I even happened onto this, but if you go to “www.topsites.me” you can sign up for FREE (very nice) speed dial utility that will allow you to add your favorite bookmarks. Below is the speed dial I created with various categories, as a sample.
After finding this hidden speed dial (not really promoted anywhere), I did some further research. This speed dial utility is managed by Nimbus Web Inc. who are the developers of Nimbus Note, Nimbus Clipper, and Nimbus Capture. They also are the developers of a very popular speed dial utility, similar to what I found, but is actually a browser extension called FVD Speed Dial. After digging further, Nimbus also has a sync utility that sync’s the speed dial (called Eversync Everhelper) that if installed allows you to manage your speed dial pages and back them up. I also found that the same sync utility works with the browser extension (FVD Speed Dial) as well, which leads me to believe (have not tested) that I could sync the speed dial I created to the one associated with the browser extension. Now that this is all clear as mud, I have been experimenting with the speed dial I created at “www.topsites.me” and have found it so far, after about a month’s usage to be very reliable. I also installed the Everysync Everhelper client that allows me to manage the tiles and perform backups. Also, you can add your own background images to the speed dial and in my case, I am using a Weather Channel static map image that routinely changes with updated weather.

“What’s On My PC“
I was looking for an easy way to pull up my Google Chrome Bookmarks and came across the “Bookmarks Menu” Chrome browser extension. With the extension installed, can now get to my bookmarks with ease without having to navigate the Google Chrome menu. Nice job on this to the developer…
