What is BrainTool - Beyond Bookmarks?
BrainTool - Beyond Bookmarks is a revolutionary Edge add-on designed to streamline your online life by consolidating bookmarks, web resources and notes into a personal hierarchy. It features powerful keyboard commands, allows adding notes to links while browsing, supports Google Drive synchronization, and ensures user data privacy by storing data in plain text files. You can import/export .org files and arrange separate workspaces by allocating topics to different windows or tab groups. Its privacy-conscious design ensures that your data never leaves your control.
Organize all your bookmarks, web resources and notes into a personal online Topic hierarchy and control it via the BrainTool Topic Manager. Open and close individual browser tabs, windows and tab groups with a single click and navigate using powerful keyboard commands.
Capture a link, add a note and assign a Topic while in context on a web page, all with a couple of keystrokes. Allocate each of your Topics to its own window or tab group for a focused workspace.
Tame your browser tabs, focus your attention and never be afraid to delete a tab again!
Your BrainTool data is private, it's your personal information space that the BrainTool application reads from a plain text file completely under your control. It's written in the popular Org-Mode format and so fits within any larger text-based workflow. Back it up, copy it, share it - it's just a text file that you own.
Import from .org files or from Tabs Outliner, download locally and/or sync automatically to Google Drive. BrainTool is a 100% browser based application so your data never leaves your control.
"Every Google Chrome user should try this...Bring your bookmarks into the 21st century" - ZDNet "I've used Session Buddy and OneTab. This is far superior." - User Review "As a current Tabs Outliner user, my first reaction is that BrainTool, even in its pre-1.0 release, is far more polished." - User Review
BrainTool is hard to summarize. Its a way-better bookmarks manager, but it's also a browser manager, a tabs manager and a session manager. It's a replacement for tools like Tabs Outliner, but it's mostly a personal knowledge management system that allows you to organize all of your online information sources (web sites, Google docs, gmails, files, photos, Slack channels, social media groups, code repos, wiki pages, task backlogs, Jupyter notebooks, etc etc etc), combine them with your text-based notes and see the big picture in the tree structured side panel. It's the plain text bookmarking tool that I always wanted to exist but could never find, so I built it. I hope you like it!
