How HomeMarks Works

Dragging & Sorting

Bookmarks are organized within boxes that are themselves stacked within horizontal columns. Each one of these objects can be dragged by their handles and sorted to fit your organizational needs.

Editing Boxes & Bookmarks

Help box popover Clicking or tapping a box's header will open its popover. From here you can customize the box's color from 18 predefined swatches. The box popover also allows you to:

  • Rename the box's title.
  • Edit its bookmark's name or location.
  • Collapse the box to save space.
  • Delete the box along with all its bookmarks.

Deleting Bookmarks & Columns

Individual bookmarks can be dragged to the trashcan where it will stay until you empty the trash. Click the [-] on the left hand side of each column's header to delete the column along with its boxes and bookmarks.

Pick A Theme That Works For You

HomeMarks sports two themes. The default is our new and modern flat white. This theme is perfect for those that love Apple's iOS 7 look and feel. We also have a classic beveled black theme that legacy HomeMarks users and contrast junkies will be sure to love. Switch between them by selecting the [Settings] option within the user dropdown toolbar item. Then select either the light or dark option.

Let Your Fingers Do The Work

The following keyboard shortcuts can help you navigate your HomeMarks start page more quickly.

  • i - Toggle inbox panel.
  • t - Toggle trashcan panel.
  • ` - Toggle inbox/trashcan panel. Whichever was last viewed.
  • e - Empty the trash.
  • r - Refresh the page.

Browser Compatibility

HomeMarks requires a modern browser. I make no guarantee that it works on anything other than Chrome or Safari. That said, Firfox should work - but it performs horribly and may feel sluggish. If you have any problems on the latest Chrome, Safari, or Internet Explorer, let us know on Get Satisfaction and we will try to help.

You can make all HomeMarks link open a new browser tab. To do this, turn on Tab Links by selecting the [Settings] option within the user dropdown toolbar item and then turning on Tab Links. Not all browsers support tabs. Those that do not will open a new window when Tab Links is enabled.
