Have you ever tried to open up your saved bookmarks on your browser after an event takes place, such as a power outage, and were shocked to find that they’re not there? Your bookmarks to sites and articles, what you rely on to safely navigate through your day to day work items, are no longer at the ease of your fingertips. If only there were a way to keep those bookmarks saved for good, similar to how you wish you could save the sites you search up, which is the very reason bookmarks were created. If only there were a way that we could bookmark our bookmarks.
Well, luckily there is (so-to-speak). For free! All that’s required is to create an account on either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Unfortunately, this means there is the added annoyance of, yet again, having to create an online account and password; but thanks to your integration of Enpass or LastPass this will no longer pose an annoyance or deterrent to adding another online account. Thank goodness someone has already covered this dilemma previously. All you have to do is choose your favorite, and most frequented, web browser (typically Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) and create an account. Once you have an account, you can save all of your tabs to that account and cross-integrate those saved items to any device that you open up on the browser you have chosen (after logging into your account). Not only does this save you from losing these bookmarks when your computer goes down, or when a power outage wipes your bookmarks, but it also allows you to link up your work bookmarks with your home bookmarks as well. You, of course, have freedom in your account as to what you want linked up across devices when you login to your account on multiple outlets. So if you don’t want your browser history linked, for example, but you want your bookmarks linked then you are now able to have that option.
This is revelatory and triumphant news, for those of us that have gone through the annoyance of losing all our cached items in our web browser after an unexpected power outage or computer failure. I know it’s a question that often gets posed after a power outage, “where did all my bookmarks go?” and this is an article to answer any future questions on the topic. Down below I’ve provided some links to the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox account creation page. Follow the links and quickly create an account to avoid future issues with lost and non-malleable bookmark integration. Quick Note: If you have a Google account for things such as Gmail then you already have an account for accessing your saved bookmarks on Chrome. All you have to do now is login to your Google account and save your bookmarks to your account so that when you login to Chrome on another device it integrates those saved bookmarks.
Hope this helps with any confusion about lost bookmarks, both now and in the future.
