Sometimes you may want an add-on functionality in an add-on without having to download one or it constantly crashes in your browser when you are not using it. Bookmarks are a perfect solution, as they are safe, easy and frankly fun.
What is a bookmark?
Bookmarks are extremely versatile in what they can do. Some can run a simple action on a page, such as translating a web page, while others can handle more complex tasks by taking you directly from a live page on your blog to the back of your content management system to edit it, for example. You have total control over them and can set them up so that they do exactly what you need.
The benefits of bookmarks
Add-ons also almost always run in the background and turn on your computer’s resources, while bookmarks do not do or use anything until you run them. Bookmarks are a dramatically less resource-intensive alternative to add-ons. They are also more secure than add-ons, as there is no third party access, only you.
We recommend that you use bookmarks if you have a less powerful computer and do not mind the minimal manual work involved in setting them up and running them.
Find and set bookmarks
If you want to save one for a service like Pocket or Facebook, many of them are already ready to use. All you have to do is find the bookmark page and drag and drop it to your favorite / bookmarks toolbar.
