Instead of bookmarking web sites, I now FURL them using that site’s free Web-based bookmarks. Once you have subscribed, you can drag an icon to your menu bar in your favorite browser. When you are on a Web site that you want to FURL,

  • Click on the icon.
  • The page name and URL are automatically entered into a popup entry screen.

  • Add keywords and comments.
  • Then save.
