Quick Links

Never bookmark a webpage again!

The Quick Links browser extension allows you to rapidly revisit 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 type that name into your URL bar to zip back to that page!

Let's say that you need to reference a periodic table for your work. It's easy enough to Google "periodic table" and find what you're looking for, but if you need to access the periodic table frequently, you'd certainly want a faster way to return to the webpage than going through the Google search results every time. A bookmark would certainly accomplish this, but then you'd still need to go find the bookmark and click on it. If you have enough bookmarks, then this search through your bookmarks bar could potentially take just as long as the Google search would have taken!

With Quick Links, you could easily associate the keyword "periodic" with the periodic table reference webpage. Then returning to the webpage is as easy as typing "go periodic" into your URL bar and hitting the enter key. Faster and easier than using a bookmark!

Installation

Download from the Chrome Web Store

Quick Links is known to be compatible with the desktop editions of Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Brave. It also works on the Kiwi browser for Android, although the user experience is still being improved for this platform. The extension should work on all other Chromium-based browsers that support Chrome extensions.

The extension could not be installed on Firefox version 103.0.2, but future versions of Firefox may support it. Quick Links cannot be installed on Safari; there are no plans to change this.
