Most browsers already offer very good tools that can be used to organize your saved websites. Meanwhile, the bookmarks bar is often hidden by default, although it is very easy to use. in a Fire fox Right-click in the menu bar and choose whether the toolbar should always be displayed or just for the new tab. in a Chrom Click on the three dots in the upper right to permanently display the settings bar.
By right-clicking on the ribbon, you can now add new folders, for example, where you can sort all bookmarks neatly. The easiest way to do this is to simply drag and drop the page into it – click the little padlock in the address bar and drop it into the appropriate folder.
Many bookmarks with very long names are saved this way. It is recommended to give this title a shorter and more prominent one. This way you can find them again faster, even if you have multiple bookmarks on the same site. You can also delete the title completely when editing the bookmark, so that only a banner is displayed. This is a very space-saving way to place all bookmarks underneath without folders.
Tip: You can also include dividing lines in Firefox to better separate areas like work and private life. There is also a flexible space in the Customize menu as a separator between individual items.
Bookmark Organizer: Delete old bookmarks
Since the browser is now the control center for daily computer work, dozens or even hundreds of bookmarks come together over time. Again, it is not easy to keep track of which pages are still updated or whether there are bookmarks that were saved twice.

The “Correct all redirects” button corrects the issues. A red dot appears for links that don’t quite lead anywhere – here you have the option to manually edit the URL or delete all invalid bookmarks. This also allows for more order to be brought to the bookmarks.

To the left of your folders, SideBar also provides quick access to top Google tools like YouTube, Google Play, Gmail or Google Maps. You don’t necessarily have to save these separately.
