About Bookmark OS

The definition of a graphical user interface (GUI): a visual way of interacting with a computer using items such as windows, icons, and folders. We still use GUI's to organize our computer files, why not our bookmarks? This question was the impetus for Bookmark OS. Bookmark OS leverages the ease of use and intuiveness of a GUI to provide a powerful and tailored interface for organizing, sorting, sharing, and searching your bookmarks.

The story

From our founder: "as an avid bookmarker, I eventually found my Chrome bookmarks so unorganized that I stopped using them. After cycling through a countless options, I eventually started dragging urls from the address bar to my desktop and organizing them with folders. This turned out to be a great option, because I was able to use the features of a GUI (graphical user interface) such as drag and drop, folders, drag select, etc, to keep my bookmarks organized and I could sort them in powerful ways."

"There were a number of drawbacks, however. I wasn't able to access my bookmarks from other computers, the bookmarks were not backed up, there was no search, and there were no icons for each url. I've been building websites now for over 8 years, so I thought to myself, 'hey I can build this as a website.' So I did! The result has been amazing. Bookmark OS has changed my bookmarking life and I'm sure it can do the same for you!"
