Star-worthy: Firefox 3 Bookmarks

Mary Colvig

As promised, we’ll continue to highlight some of the incredibly cool and useful Firefox 3 features you can expect to see.   Today’s installment on Firefox 3’s new bookmarking system is brought to you once again by Deb Richardson, the author of the about:mozilla newsletter.   Deb provides a clear explanation of the many improvements you’ll see, including:

  • bookmark stars which allow for one-click bookmarking
  • tags that allow you to add extra relevant information to a bookmark so it’s easier to find and organize
  • smart bookmark folders or “saved searches” that automatically update when you add new items matching that search to your bookmarks

Take a look at her post for more details, as well as a great how-to.  I’ve found that I am using Firefox 3’s bookmarking with renewed gusto thanks to the little star and intuitive organization and search!
