Quix is a nifty new application that allows you to create an all-in-one solution for bookmarklets and bookmarks, as well as an easy way to shorten links and post to multiple locations, all from any browser. Use Quix to free up a large portion of your bookmark toolbar real estate! It is an extensible bookmark in and of itself, allowing you to access all of your bookmarks – no matter which browser you happen to be using! It maintains all of the necessary shortcuts in one tiny space.
Many of us rely on Firefox, due to all of the many add-ons related to keeping track of our bookmarks. Sadly, these same add-ons and extensions clog up our browser, making it crawl around at a cumbersome pace. To fix these problems, we often start using bookmarklets. The problem here is that once we have a lot of these, they become hard to keep track of. I don’t know about you, but I am constantly having to stop and look around for the one I need! I don’t like having to eat up any more of my time than necessary looking for what I need. I already have too much to do!
This is where Quix comes in. Quix allows you to type easy to remember commands and perform the actions you want to perform – when you want to perform them! It comes with a huge set of built in commands, but you can easily extend it by using your own commands file too! Think of Quix as a command line for your browser. Yeah, it’s THAT Geeky. Don’t let that scare you away, though. Quix really is simple to use.
You can start using Quix yourself with just three simple steps. Drag it into your browser and name it. Click on the new icon to open the prompt box, and then type a command to get started! The official website has a listing of all of the included functions, so that you will go into the experience already knowing how to do things.
Try it out for yourself. Once you do, make sure you let us know what you think! I have a feeling that once you’ve gotten used to using Quix, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
