Get a Sneak Peek of Our New Feature: Suggested Tags

We are excited to announce Suggested Tags, a new feature that will recommend a list of relevant tags each time you bookmark a site.

What makes this feature especially useful is that you can instantly find tagged bookmarks by typing tag names into the Firefox 3 location bar. This is one of the quickest ways to organize and recall bookmarks in Firefox 3. However, if you don't use tags, you can turn off this feature via Foxmarks Settings.

Suggested Tags is currently available only for the Firefox browser and suggests only English tags. We will add support for other browsers and languages in the future.

We aren't releasing this feature as an automatic upgrade yet, but you can try it out early by downloading it right here:

So how does it work? As you may know, Foxmarks manages over half a billion bookmarks every day. We're now putting this data to work for you by analyzing this giant collection of information to determine the best tags for your bookmark. As always, we are careful to protect your privacy and our algorithms will never expose any personally identifying information.

We hope Suggested Tags helps you better manage your bookmarks. Give it a spin and let us know what you think!
