I'm embarrassed when anyone pulls down my bookmarks list; they read like "War and Peace"! The list scrolls for what seems miles... it's no wonder I can never find the one I want when I want it.

SomeWare has the solution.

Urlybird is a URL capture agent; once loaded, it stays in your system tray waiting for you to highlight and copy a URL to the clipboard. Urlybird jumps in and saves it for you. If you come across a URL when you're reading the paper or magazine that you want to keep to view at a later date, you can enter it into urlybird's list manually.

Urlybird will take you to your saved URLs, too. Simply highlight the URL in the list and click "launch"; urlybird automatically launches your default web browser and takes you to the site.

Once you've visited the saved URLs, they are easily deleted from the list, or you can set urlybird to remove them automatically. If the URL is one you've decided to keep, urlybird will let you save links in many different ways, including as bookmarks in many browsers.

For the miniscule price, it's a godsend!
