Bookmarks are one of the important part of the web browsing. In olden days bookmarks stays only with the browser and it is completely unorganized. People go and search all over the bookmarks to find the one they need. The only option they had was importing bookmarks from one browser to the other. Unlikely, today we have plenty of both mobile and desktop application to save or bookmark important links on the go. Today we are going to discuss about one such application called FavBucket for PC and Mac, which helps you to save, organize and protect your bookmarks.
Previously I wrote about a bookmarks search engine for Chrome but FavBucket is a completely different application. It is a web app where you can create a separate account to save all your bookmarks. In FavBucket, the first step is creating an account. Once you create an account, you will be redirected to your dashboard. Before that there will be a pop up on the screen which will ask your permission to connect the application with your current browser. So you don’t need to download a separate application to connect FavBucket with your browser. You can do it right away as soon as you create the account.
Next, in the home page you will see five different options on the left side of the window and sample bookmark links. In the five options on the left first you have a home button and the next one is Inbox. After you start using the application you can share and receive bookmarks from other users. So all those transaction details will be available in your Inbox page. Next you have an option called “Confidential” which helps you to create a 4-digit pin to protect your important bookmarks. You can save all your favorite bookmarks into the “Loved” category.
The last one is pretty important, which helps you to connect three different social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to your FavBucket account and save the links easily into your account. Since social networks has become a important place for sharing important links on the Internet, this option will helps you save and organize all the links from different social accounts in a single place.
Similar to Evernote and other cloud applications, you can create tags for the bookmarks you save. The tags option will be available on the right side of your window and it will be very helpful when you search for a particular link. Also you can organize those tabs by keeping them in separate buckets. These buckets are the major classifications for tags and helps you easily find your bookmarks on similar categories. FavBucket will be very helpful when you are planning a wedding, creating an online shopping list, working on a project with group of people, etc.
It is a great application to organize and retrieve your bookmarks and the best part is, it is completely free. So give a shot and share your experience with us in the comments. Also don’t forget to share this post with your friends.
