Finally a solid bookmark add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My bookmarks current are sorted in the standard Firefox bookmark toolbar with folders separating the facebook/myspace/social network sites from the woot/slickdeals/good deal websites from my school's web links etc. This add-on gives a solid, easy to use graphic UI for your bookmarks even providing a search bar for each! Prior to having the add-on I had a mess of my bookmarks that took forever to manage but now this groups and sorts all of my bookmarks in a simple and fast way. My favorite part is how quickly this is to pick up, use, and customize with very little effort. Also the ability to digg, share with facebook and reddit the website you are all from the same toolbar is awesome. On top of it all, unlike the standard bookmark list these bookmarks opens everything you click on automatically in a new tab (very solid, love this feature). No need to ctrl+t before going to another website. I'm going to have to go ahead and say this add-on is a solid five stars for anyone (everyone) who uses bookmarks to easily get around to your favorite sites.

Very Useful Addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

What I like about the samfind add-on is that with at most two clicks, I can reach the websites I visit most quickly and easily. Want to go to facebook? Click social networks-> facebook. Want to get driving directions, hit maps, type in the start and stop addresses and then you can pick google maps or yahoo maps. It is a huge time saver.

Just Websites

Chris,
In case you haven't done it already, you can visit the Options and make your two clicks into one click by choosing Just Websites. Right now you are using Topics to organize the Websites - that is useful if you have lots of Websites to organize.

Very useful! Lots of customization options. The inline toolbar mode makes better use of space than the default search and bookmarks bar combined. Definitely give it a try!

samfind in the URL Bar

Harry, thanks for using samfind. We have incorporated the suggestion you emailed us - leaving the Bar at the last state that you left it when you open/close the browser. You will see it in 1.1.2.

You can make it better by linking the user entered web addresses you add to your lists from your personal bookmarks without having to type them in. That would be huge. It's very time consuming to personalize and that may be off putting for some. I found that it works very well for searches for most sites. The interface however is less elegant than it could be, it takes up a great deal of space, is there any way to hide it until the user needs it, a pull down bar or something? Other than those very minor touches I liked the way it worked it made searches much faster when I needed a very specific item. Good Job all in all!

Integrating Bookmarks Toolbar websites and Auto-Hide

Greywitch1234,
You can integrate websites that are in your Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar by going to Options and clicking Integrate Bookmarks Toolbar Websites. It will add them auto-magically!

You can also choose to autohide the Bar so that it only appears when you go to the top (or bottom) of the browser. That is also in the Options.

Pretty cool. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

PROS: I like how i can make it easy to get to the websites that I use. i put it on my browser search form - so instead of having just google, I have about 40 other sites that i go to as well. so now i can search cnn or just visit reddit.

CONS: Would be good to expand the RSS feeds to include any website that has an Rss feed, like photo sites.

A powerful search utility!

This samfind toolbar is great for the people that really like to surf the Net.

Ideal for shopping in that it allows you to type the name of the product once and then search an array of sites from the samfind toolbar while avoiding alot of finicky browser tab clicking.

I love the Maps option that allows you to simply enter zip codes for the location and destination.

It's a good addon, all it needs is some hotkeys to make me convert from the default Ctrl+K searchbar!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Control-M for Hot Keys

Keyboard Shortcuts can be accessed by pressing:

Control+M

Then, if you want to narrow them down, type the first letter(s) of the website you want to go to. If you want to search that website, press the -space bar- and type your query. So, for example, to search Wikipedia for h3lium, you would type:

w TheTonkster

and press enter.
