Am am delighted by opening many tabs; sure not tabs for the sake of tabs. It is a surfing style and I plan on changing no time soon.

tab sets

Tab Kit: can collaps into a set. You might like (borring some ideas from) it

TooManyTabs: can save a tab set into the TMT dimension (releasing resources)... but they seem to be resisting any kind of auto stuff anything into the TMT dimension with user rules. Maybe you could?

Bookmark current tab set: as you might imagine makes that process slightly easier.


1@ dev & folder nested: I like that, too

2@ dev: why not work to make tags nestable?

It's a great tool, that I highly recommend to everyone.
I have been looking for this kind of tool for many years to organize my bookmark more efficiently.
It's very useful, it's very user-friendly and it works smoothly.
Please continue to improve this wonderful tool !
For example, I would like to use a color code to find my bookmarks more easily.
It's the best add-on in Firefox and I've been using a lot since i discovered it. Thank you for your work.

Categories can now be accessed from toolbar with new version Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Correction: Version 0.8.9.4 and above contains this new functionality... it is on the developers site, and works great.

In the newest version available on the developers website (0.8.9.3), Usman Latif has fixed the more important of my 2 quibbles!

Categorize now allows you to put Categories directly on its toolbar, so less clicks to get where you want to go. It's now equally as fast at finding bookmarks as it is at saving and sorting them (where it's light years ahead of any solution I've seen).

Recommended before and doubly so now.

This is an amazing, wonderful productivity tool.

It simplifies organizing bookmarks and probably cuts the time and stress required to do so to less than a third of what it would otherwise be.

Probably less than that.

I have a few quibbles I hope the developer will address.

Categorize is super fast at organizing bookmarks, but could be better at accessing them.

On the Categorize toolbar, there SHOULD be buttons for "Groups", "Categories", and "Collections"... or "Categories" and "Collections" at a minimum.

Why?

Speed. Clicks.

Now I have to click the Bookmarks toolbar, then find and hover over the given item, then finally drill down. This is waste.

It should be hover over the TOOLBAR and Categories pop-out immediately. Also on my laptop I use the "Tiny Menu" extension, and this adds YET ANOTHER click which would be completely unnecessary if there were links to these on the Categorize toolbar.

Second quibble.

While it was a fantastic idea to move them to the toolbar, the new icons for "Important Bookmarks" and "Read Later" suck.

They look like each other.

AND it's hard to tell if they've been clicked because each icons active state looks pretty much like its inactive state.

Those icons were far better before the new release. Did it LOOK LIKE a page to read? No, not really, but you could tell it apart from the other icon and see at a glance whether it was active or not.

Now you can't without squinting and thinking.

Great work!

I love this add-on. It is now my favourite add-on 5-STARS all the way.

This is a great addon. The alternate bookmarking and tab management system definitely improved my ability to organize my bookmarks. Beats tags and folders, hands down.

Also, for Running-Bear, Categorize is being updated. Unfortunately, it is in the sandbox, so if you go to the bookmarks.fogbugz.com link shown in the support heading in the description, and on that website, click downloads, you can find the latest version for categorize. Right now, it is updated for the current version of firefox, 3.5.3.

GREAT! Improves my efficiency by encouraging more current organization -- And the Reading List feature allows me to run without another extension -- It's a potent addition to Urlbar too! ...NEEDs UPDATE though, to the current Firefox version. Please update soon ! (okay please?)

Excellent! Never thought I could get so much out of grouping my bookmarks. Really like the reading list as well as I can easily close tabs but mark them for later reading.

Great potential Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I congratulate you for introducing, in a way, the use of hierarchical tags (or categories, as the developer decided to name them). The implementation of hierarchical tags is very useful in order of getting a neat and ordered system of bookmarks. I think it should be, somehow, a built-in feature of any library (not just a bookmarks one). However regarding this extension I see a couple of problems:
1. It creates a new bookmark library without giving you the possibility to import your old bookmarks into this new system. Your old bookmarks stay where they are and newly created bookmarks are stored in the bookmarks extension's library. At least I did not find a way to import them after reading the developer support page.
2. If you finally use the extension, how can we create multiple categories for a bookmark? Again I did not find the way in the support page and common characters like , or ; did not work.
On the other hand, what I really would like to be implemented is a hierarchical tag system for the current firefox tag system. A tag could be something like the category in this extension. As an example consider the following: 'exact disciplines>mathematics>linear algebra, exercises'. Notice that in this example hierarchical levels are separated by the symbol '>', a hierarchical level can contain multiple words [as current firefox tags], there can be hierarchical tags, and, most importantly, actual tags could be used and converted into hierarchical tags easily. Also, this system would make use of all actual enhancements (other extensions) for bookmarks (eg. synchronization) or the firefox bookmark library which could be transform to allow browsing through hierarchical tag levels. An additional benefit of this system is that the user could remove all folder hierarchies and just work with the tags.

Anyway, congratulations. For me this is a great beginning, though right now I want to be able to use my bookmarks in other systems (delicious) so I will wait to see how this evolves. I wish the developer will implement some of the advices above or, even better, the firefox team for a buil-in utility.

Looks great, but where's my old bookmarks sidebar? I need them back, pls!!! Besides, this addon makes me lost the addon name lookup field function provided by Mr Tech ToolKit addon in addon sidebar. Awaiting to re-rate this potential addon to 5 stars!

Good concepts, badly implemented Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There is a great potential in this extension but they are implemented in a bad way:

1) NEVER add new bookmarks to the user's profile, replacing his bookmark structure, even if its for demonstration purposes.

2) Sidebar should be implemented in a compatible way (i.e. bookmark views switcher INSIDE the sidebar, not on the header; or use an individual sidebar for each bookmark view) so extension will co-exist peacefully with other sidebars and sidebar extension like AiO Sidebar.

3) Use a toolbar instead of statusbar, there is not enough space on statusbar for all the functions.

4) No support for favicons? No icons at all in the sidebar trees (meaning bookmarks and categories/groups look the same)

5) Extension's star bookmark concept conflicts with Firefox own star bookmark: green stars and yellow stars, should use another metaphor.

6) Opening a bookmark group makes all existing tabs disappear from tabbar. Using the statusbar for open groups of bookmarks in is conter-intuitive, there's no visual indication of how the group buttons in the statusbar affect the displayed tabs.

7) No integration with Firefox history / Awesome bar / Places library: opening the library will show old user's bookmarks. This is probably caused by using a brand new sqlite database instead of building on top of standard places database.

8) "Bookmark this link" from history not supported, adds bookmark to old database, "Live Bookmarks" added to old database too. New database does not support the "Bookmarks Toolbar" concept (so dragging a bookmark to the toolbar adds it to the old database too).

I gave it a 4 stars rating because all the concepts behing this are great, but they need to be implemented in a much better way.

I really want to use the add-on permanently but will wait for an improved version to address the issues others have listed here.
