Get to the information you need faster!
The Quick Links browser extension allows you to rapidly access previously visited webpages without needing to dig through your browser history or bookmarks bar. All you have to do is come up with a memorable name for a webpage you want to visit again, then later, you only need to type that name into your URL bar, and you are there!
If you wanted to bookmark
you could just give it the name
Then when you needed to go back to that page, you could just type
into your URL bar, and you'll be taken directly there.
This works everything, be it a public webpage, private Google Doc, a social media profile, a browser extension settings page, or even a local file. It's fast. It's easy.
You can also use this extension to cut out the middle-man. Say you wanted to search Google Maps. Ordinarily, you would have to navigate to the page, and then enter your search.
With Quick Links, you can search almost any website
with a search function directly from your URL bar.
For example typing
go maps/restaurants near me into the URL bar could take you
directly to the Google Maps search results for
"restaurants near me".
