Bookmarks are probably the most commonly used feature of any web browser, anyone and everyone that has used the Internet is sure to have a stash of favourite websites. Although most people usually have a few dozen bookmarks saved to their browsers shortcut bar. These links don’t always go to the exact location on a page that you may wish to frequent. 

As a result, you’ll need to scroll down to the specific position on the page manually to find exactly what you are looking for. Thankfully, there’s now an easier way to save bookmarks that allows you to return to the exact area on a page that you were last browsing or at least the last place you were browsing when you saved the bookmark.

Bookmarkify is a fantastic way to save bookmarks that take you back to the exact position on a page you need to frequent. To use Bookmarkify to save position specific website bookmarks, you’ll need to first highlight the text on the page you wish to bookmark. Once you have done this, you’ll see a small icon appear to the right-hand side of the highlighted text. Click this and the bookmark will be saved. 

Once done, you’ll see a slim semi-transparent bar appear next to your vertical scroll bar. You’ll also see coloured dots representing each of the saved bookmarks you have saved using Bookmarkify on that page. It’s also worth noting that Bookmarkify doesn’t collect or send data back to any online sources. The only downside to this is that if you remove the extension or try to use it on another computer you won’t have your bookmarks. So please keep this in mind when using Bookmarkify. The clip below shows you exactly how bookmarkify works.
