GBookmarks – Manage Your Bookmarks From Firefox

Posted by madhavkobal on 04/11/2009

Firefox Google Bookmarks (gbookmarks) v0.5: (NEW!)This extension allows you to access Google Bookmarks. It creates a menu in firefox using which you can add, edit and remove bookmarks. So, you can access your bookmarks from any computer. You don’t have to mail a link if you want to save or access bookmarks accross computers, just use my extension…

Download it here (NEW!)(if you get an error, this site is prevented by firefox. Click on “Edit Options” and allow this website)

New featues in v0.5:

– Compatible with Firefox 3.5

– Added Sub Folder capability

– Fixed the bug on Mac

New featues in v0.4:

– Compatible with Firefox 3.0

New features in v0.3:

1. Fixed the bug while adding/deleting the bookmarks.
2. Fixed the Inline Spell Check bug
3. You can see the bookmarks under various labels

4. This should be slightly faster compared to the old versions

New features in v0.2 from v0.1:

1. Added the ability to Add / Import Firefox Bookmarks to Google Bookmarks
2. Added the ability to Sort by Date and title
3. Added Context Menu buttons

Before Installation:
Legal Issues at the first:

  • THIS IS NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH GOOGLE AND GOOGLE DOESN’T ENDORSE IT. SO, INSTALL IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
  • I AM NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA LOSS OR ANY DAMAGE DUE TO THIS EXTENSION.
  • IF GOOGLE MAKES ANY CHANGES, THIS MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY.
  • IT MAY SO HAPPEN THAT THIS EXTENSION MAY BE DISCONTINUED AT ANY POINT. I WON’T BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • You should have Google Account to access Google Bookmarks and use this extension. You can create a new google account at https://www.google.com/accounts/ .
  • You need internet connection and a computer 🙂

USAGE:

  • You can save your bookmarks to ONLY ONE account in this version. Accessing multiple accounts may not be feasible in Firefox.
  • It ALWAYS picks the account you are logged into (no matter what account you gave in extension’s preferences or options) for the same reason said above. So, be careful if you use 2 accounts as the bookmarks may go to either of your accounts based on the login.
  • This is the first version and may need lot of improvement. So, let me know if you encounter any bugs.

TODO:

  • In the next version, interface for importing your existing firefox bookmarks to google bookmarks will be provided. So, please wait until then.
  • Keyboard and context menu shortcuts
  • Please mail me if you have ANY OTHER feature requests.

IF THERE ARE ANY BUGS/SUGGESTIONS/COMMENTS, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT rjonna@rjonna.com. I will try to get them in the future releases if feasible…
