The New Yahoo! Bookmarks and Toolbar Get a Refresh

Back in October we launched the new Yahoo! Bookmarks and Yahoo! Toolbar to make it easier for users to save, organize, and find their favorite websites. Key features included the ability to easily organize with folders or tags, and the ability to instantly find bookmarks directly from the Yahoo! Toolbar searchbox. Today, we’re announcing the general availability, on Firefox and IE, with a few new updates including integration with popular Yahoo! properties, personalized recommendations for suggested bookmarks and enhanced features for organizing and managing bookmarks.

Based directly on the feedback we received from our customers, here’s what bookmarks and toolbar now offer:

Bookmarks Quick List
To help navigate and organize bookmarks better, IE users (to start) can now move any bookmark into a “Quick List” and it will appear at the top level of the Yahoo! Bookmarks menu (instead of in a folder sub-menu). Users can limit the number of bookmarks that are in the Quick List by going to the Yahoo! Bookmarks Preferences.

New Integrations with Yahoo! Properties
To provide a more personalized experience, bookmarks now offers integration with Yahoo! Mail to quickly and easily save links directly from email. With the huge number of links received through email, it’s about bringing the bookmarks functionality to places that users need it most. In the future, users can look forward to additional bookmarks integration with other Yahoo! properties.
