automatic bookmarks and intentional bookmarks
I would say that the search history that you get from Google is an example of automatic bookmarks
. If you go to a place via a google search, Google will automatically mark it here
. These marks are well indexed and it is relatively easy to return to find them again even many months after your initial visit. For example i visited a page about round cornered css boxes that showed one box staying in a fixed position on the screen
. I didn't booklmark the page but i studied it in detail and it ended up influencing my thinking about the web designs that i was working on. About a month later i wanted to refer to it again but could not find it in my fastblogit bookmarks ... oh well, after some 5 minutes rooting around in my search history, there it was.
Since it is an influential page it deserves an intentional bokmark
, see [item 2716
]. An intentional bookmark is far easier to find than the automatic sort. Just type in a fragment of a tag that you remember about the item in the live search box, and boom, there it is ... the 5 minutes of rooting around can usually be avoided
