URL Gather Free Bookmark Manager

URL Gather Free Bookmark Manager

I would be TOTALLY lost without my bookmark manager. I have always preferred to use a bookmark manager rather use the browser’s bookmark or favorites feature. The reason I use a bookmark manager program is because I have too many bookmarks to use the browser feature. It would simply take up my entire laptop screen and it would be a hot mess.

I use Google Chrome as my browser and I do use the their bookmark manager and I have it set to show the bookmark bar. This is where I place bookmarks I visit on a regular basis, such as: social media sites, affiliate networks, WordPress logins, etc. Mostly this is used for sites I visit daily.
