Firefox Features #2 – One Click Bookmarking

One of the things I have become to really like with the new Firefox Version 3 web browser, is the feature called “One Click Bookmarking”.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes the fewer clicks I can use to accomplish something, the happier I am. I tend to get a bit irritated when I need to go through a few levels in order to accomplish something that should and can be done with just one click.

One click on the star icon at the end of the location bar (address bar) bookmarks a site. Two clicks and you can choose where to save it and whether to tag it.

If this was not enough convenience to knock your socks off, let me tell you about the “Tags”. When you click twice on the star in the location bar, and the edit bookmark window appears, there is a field down at the bottom called “tags” In this field, you can add descriptive tags for your bookmarked sites.

For instance, if I “tag” all the golf related sites in my bookmarked folders with the word “golf”, then I can simply type in the word “golf” in the location bar and it would include all of my bookmarked sites tagged as “golf”.

I find this highly useful, as I usually create folders for what I would term “category related websites”. As an example, I had a folder in my bookmarks called “Microsoft”, and I would put all Microsoft related websites into that folder. Now, I just tag all those sites with “Microsoft“, and I simply type that into the location bar and it gives me all related sites.
