Clipper is the most simple and fastest way to save new bookmarks.

Save All Tabs#

When you have many tabs open, saving them one at a time is a bit tedious. Instead you can save them at once.

How to use?

  • If you have Clipper appearance just click Tabs… in bottom left corner of a window.
  • If you have Mini App appearance just mouse over Save and select Save tabs….

By default saved tabs will have a tag with a date. That way you can find them easly later.

Search from Address Bar#

You can search your bookmarks right from browser address bar by typing special keyword before your query.

Just type rd and then your search query. For example rd design.

Privacy & FAQ#

What data does the extension collect?#

The browser extension does not do or collect anything unless you tell it to. It sits quietly in the background, waiting for you to interact with it.

What that means is, only if you press a button (for example: Raindrop.io) will it send a URL, or an image to the Raindrop.io servers so we can bookmark it for you. We will NEVER access anything else in your browser withour your permission and explicit action.
