Closing thoughts on bookmark manager extensions for browsers

We as humans love having keepsakes of all the things we do and all the things we like, even when it comes to digital items.

That’s why the bookmark feature was probably implemented in browsers so that we can quickly revisit our pages of interest.

However, these bookmarks can pile up over time, so having a way of efficiently searching through them seems like something inevitable. Thus, if you’re going to get a bookmark extension tool anyway, try to get one that you’ll love using.
