About Bookmark OS

Bookmark OS is like an operating system built from the ground up for bookmarks. More specifically, it is an online desktop / GUI (icons, folders, drag and drop, etc) that helps you get the most out of your bookmarks. We spend a lot of time bookmarking things online, but it's hard to get maximum value of these bookmarks. Over time, your bookmark manager turns into a bookmark black hole. A place where bookmarks go to die. Bookmark OS solves this issue by making it easy to organize, sort, browse, and search your bookmarks!

The story

As an avid bookmarker, I eventually found my Chrome bookmarks unusable. After cycling through a couple 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, folder, drag select, etc, to keep my bookmarks organized and I could sort them in powerful ways.

There were a number of drawbacks however, such as: I wasn't able to access my bookmarks from other computers, the bookmarks were not backed up, 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!
