Q:
I have all these bookmarks but don’t remember why I saved them. is there any way to make a note or something as a reminder?

A:
We’ve all poured over our Favorites/Bookmark list and wondered why a particular website was there? Sure, they’re organized into folders, but the purpose of the site is a mystery. Good news, all of you Netscape, Firefox and Opera users have an excellent resource to help you keep track of bookmarks. That’s right, this is one of those few times that Internet Explorer users are left out of a browser trick (unless they use third-party software like “myFavorites“).

If you are using Netscape, right click the bookmark you want to put a note in and choose “Properties”. In the “Description” box, add your comments.

For those of you with Firefox 1.0 it works the same as Netscape: right click the bookmark you want to put a note in and choose “Properties”. In the “Description” box, add your comments.

With the Opera browser, right mouse click a favorite and choose “Properties”. A window pops up where you can change the name, give the site a nickname, and best of all, describe the site. Other options include check boxes to show the site on your Personal Toolbar and/or in your Hotlist Panel.

When you mouse over a bookmark in Opera, it displays the properties, including description, in a pop-up window. Something Netscape and Firefox don’t even do!

This is one of the most useful tools I’ve ever found in web browsers. I wonder when the brains in Redmond will “incorporate” this feature into Internet Explorer?
