Add a keyboard shortcut to a Chrome bookmark or bookmarklet

It occurred to us, after writing yesterday's list of Chrome keyboard shortcuts, that there was one glaring omission: bookmark shortcuts. Not only does the Bookmark Bar take up valuable real estate, but no one really wants to click through folders of bookmarks to find what you're looking for. Now, Firefox has 'Smart bookmarks', which lets you add a keyword to a bookmark. Chrome, however,...

Xmarks bookmark sync for Dolphin Browser HD now available in Android Market

If there's one thing that would make me switch from Dolphin Mini to Dolphin HD on my Android phone, it's the fact that HD offers add-on support. Favorites browser enhancements like LastPass and AdBlock are already available, and now there's one more worth installing: Xmarks. The bookmark sync extension is now available in the Android Market and ready to keep your Dolphin HD favorites marching...

Myfav.es (Fav4) adds new icons, registration, custom URLs

Remember Fav4? It's a customized browser home page, with a super-clean layout featuring a huge, beautiful icon for each of your favorite sites. And now it has a new domain name – Myfav.es (although fav4.org still works), along with a few notable additions. I couldn't find a list of all of the updates on the site, but here's what I've noticed: Many new site icons: Including the world's...

Better bookmark manager coming to Google Chrome - here's what it looks like (video)

Mac users of Google Chrome finally got a solid bookmark system in Google Chrome...but the dev team isn't stopping there, of course. In the last week or so, several updates have been made to the Chromium source code which will bring a better -- and more Chrome-y -- bookmark manager to the browser. The new 'tabbed bookmark manager' currently looks like what you see in the screenshot. Rather than...

Google's stars let you save your favorite search results

Oh my gosh, Google is full of stars! The popular icons that started as a way to mark messages in Gmail have spread into Google Reader and Google News, and now they're finally shooting into Google's search results! With Google offering the ability to mark your favorite sites and have them come up first in related searches, I think your browser's bookmark feature may have just become obsolete. ...

Favrd, a beloved Twitter favorites tracker, shuts down

Favrd, a site created in 2008 by Dean Allen to track the funniest posts on Twitter, has shut down today. More than just a pointer in the direction of Twitter's most-favorited fart jokes, Favrd was the center of a vibrant community of wisecrackers. Its passing has been mourned in tweets and blogs by web luminaries including Jeffrey Zeldman. Why did Dean decide to shut down Favrd? Well, it seems...

Explore Twitter Favourites with Favstar

I'm constantly fascinated by Twitter favourites - they're one of the least-used aspects of the service, and serve as a great way to save humourous (or ever useful) updates from other users for your perusal. But let's be honest, it's always nice to know who's finding your own updates interesting or amusing. That's where the likes of Favrd and Twitfave come in - two great services that let you know...

Twitterbelle: use favorites to find new people to follow

Favorites are a dramatically underused feature on Twitter, but if you know where to look, you can use them to find some people you might be interested in following. Twitterbelle is a new site that makes that process easier. Just put in the username of someone you think is interesting and has good taste in friends, and you'll see a list of the people he or she has awarded favorites to. This is a...

Folder View adds recent and favorite folders to Windows Explorer

Folder View is a free Windows utility that gives you quick access to the folders you use most often in Windows Explorer. You can add shortcuts for every folder in My Documents, or choose custom folders to add to the toolbar. We'd advise against selecting an entire drive, since you'll wind up with a toolbar several rows deep filled with folders. It sort of defeats the purpose of having shortcuts...

Favrd - Twitter with none of the "webcock"

Believe us when we say that we know you're sick of hearing about Twitter, but there's a good reason it's one of Download Squad's favorite toys. We often find out about new software on Twitter before it gets blogged anywhere else, and the readers reap all the benefits. And did we mention that some people's Twitter streams are flat-out hilarious? Favrd, a new service from Dean Allen, will help you...

Add download folders to Firefox with FavLoc

FavLoc is one of those FireFox extensions that should really have been built into the web browser. What it lets you do is create a list of download folders that is easily accessible from the right-click menu in Firefox. Normally when you want to download a link or file you can either just download it to your default folder or click "Save Link As" and browse to a folder. With FavLoc installed,...

All Browser Bookmarks: access your favorites from the menubar

All Browser Bookmarks, from the makers of 1Password, is a free program that gives you easy access to your Internet bookmarks from multiple browsers via the Mac OS X menubar.
