While surfing the internet every day, we come across interesting content we might want to get back to later. To keep track of these pages, we sometimes tend to do it the old fashion way, which is; either bookmarking, leaving the webpage open on the browser, or emailing yourself the link. While these methods are helpful in the absence of the right tools, they leave your browser disorganized and cluttered, which may sometimes lead to a serious malfunction. That’s where a bookmark manager comes in handy.
What is a Bookmark Manager?
The bookmark manager is more like a productivity app, it helps you keep track of items you find on the web in your browser so that you can revisit them later. With an app like this, you can save and organize contents to view later without worrying about losing them. Also, it allows you to access bookmarked content across any device as long as there is an internet connection.

Also, it automatically places duplicate links into a collection so you can delete bookmarks you don’t need. It does the same for the broken links too.
Additionally, you can save or upload pictures from the web. The best part is, when you save a picture from the web, it automatically captures the URL, which you can click on if you need to go back to the source of the picture.
