Since I’ve upgraded to Leopard, I’ve eventually migrated from Firefox, which is rich of ad-ons, to Safari, which has been proved to render the page much faster.
In addition to that, I also like Safari Bookmark that is easy to create, manage and organize.
Adding Bookmark Items
Adding bookmark items comes in handy when you’re using Safari. Maybe you’ve been wondering what is the function of the globe next to the url address, and now you will have the answer : it’s for dragging the url into bookmark bar and hence in return, you will have new bookmark item. It’s easy right?
If you happen to invoke your
Safari Bookmarks Preferences Pane, you will see the blue globe as the icon. If you want, you can change this icon which can be easily found with these simple steps :
- Applications ▸ Safari
- Contextual Menu ▸ Show Package Contents
- Contents ▸ Resources
Organizing Bookmark Items
Eventually, your bookmarks bar will be flooded will so many references to useful or barely your favorite web pages. In this case, organizing, categorizing or, can be said, tagging bookmarks comes for rescue.
To create a new bookmark folder :
Contextual Menuof bookmarks bar
- Click on
- Fill in the desired name and confirm
Categorizing Bookmark Items
It’s a bit tricky to drag them into new bookmark folder, which is created just now. You cannot drag and drop them directly from the bookmarks bar. You need to do several steps in order to drag your bookmark items into the right folder :
- Click on the Book shaped icon to Show All Bookmarks
- Now, you can start organizing them by dragging and dropping them in the appropriate way, i.e. reordering and grouping
Opening all bookmarked items in the same group is single click away from you. You just need to call the contextual menu for the particular group and click on
Open in Tabs menu selection.
