Another reason to use the Google toolbar
« on: March 20, 2010, 11:36:38 pm »
In case you don't know, the Google toolbar is a free browser module that you can get that has lots of features - pop up blocker, auto fill, Google search box, etc - but the main reason that I use it is that it has a bookmark feature.  If you use it you can access all of your bookmarks from any computer.  The only thing has been that there has never been a way that I know of to search within your bookmarked pages - I have hundreds if not thousands of bookmarks, and I don't always remember what they are, how they are labeled or exactly where I put them.

Anyway, I just noticed that whenever you do a Google search it gives you a list at the beginning of the results page of any hits within your bookmarks.  Awesome!  At least awesome if you are as easily entertained as I am.  Anyway, now I can very quickly find that link to the cool page on the hole punch method of queen rearing that I ran across last year.

If you haven't used the Google toolbar you should check it out - http://www.google.com/toolbar/ff/index.html

I have it, but I also have to re stack my bookmarks. Also have to resign in on every thing.
