When rummaging through the web, often there is something we’re not sure whether we want to keep but we would potentially like to come back to it. We could use our history or bookmarks for this, but our history can become overflowing fast and a bookmark can do the trick but if we forget to clear them out they quickly become a cluttered jungle. Although there are approaches that might be better than this, non are this fast or manageable.
Enter Quick Web
Quick Web is a small utility designed specifically to allow you to keep certain URL’s and come back to them when the moment is right. There are two approaches to this. The first is a quickeys approach but I find for something not intended to be around for a while, you’re stretching your memory for nothing. In this method, you grab the URL you’re interested in and jump back to it when you’re ready.
The second is more of a list a approach is which you capture the URL, point your mouse at the app icon, right click and you get a list of saved URL’s.
After quickly having re-visited the web site, it is probably wise to clear up the URL’s that are no longer needed. This keeps everything clean and efficient.
