Chapter 1. Introduction.

This is the Gnobog (Gnome Bookmarks Organizer) user's guide. It's intended to help you in using Gnobog, and to give you a quick overview of what you can do with it.

Main goals of Gnobog:

  • Help you manage your bookmarks (by editing, moving, cutting, pasting, sorting, searching...)

  • Ease your Web or ftp surfing (by giving you possibly better views of your bookmarks than in your browser; by allowing you to launch whichever program you want to go to a particular location; ...)

  • Offer higher level features such as sharing bookmarks, merging different bookmarks sources, synchronizing...

  • More generally to focus on internet locations and allow you to : be independent of any browser, import and export any bookmarks file format, drop or paste in any program you want (mail client, text editor...), and whatever features might be useful when dealing with urls :-)

Of course not everything is implemented right now. We develop Gnobog in our spare time, like many other open source software projects. We hope it may be useful to some people (it is for us in the first place ;-), but keep in mind that it will be improving slower than you (and us) would like (but you can help to get it faster :-)

Gnobog is also a way for us to play with any technology we find interesting. There are many things going on these days, like good xml libraries, bonobo components, gtk 2.0, gal widgets... It's all really exciting, and the only thing we always lack is some more time ! (actually, we could have, but we want also a life ;-)
