I regularly have about a million pages open in Safari, which sucks up a lot of ram, and hard drive space for cache. I try minimize the number, but it’s an old bad habit that I have and I can’t seem to break it. I always have something I “need” to get back to.
For some reason bookmarks don’t work well for me in Safari, recovering them that is. I will create a bookmark and know I have it, yet when I start to type it, Safari seems to be more interested in bringing up similar history than the actual bookmark. So I’m not sure I want to put these things in bookmarks.
I am hoping there is something I can use that will let me just drop these links into them, where I can refer back to them or read them when I get the time. And yes, there really have been times when I’ve started a project, knew I had the page open, and realized it had shut down along the way then I’d have to dig through my history and hope it’s there.
I think I tend to keep pages open because doing so keeps them at my fingertips and out of my head. Sometimes I am doing research and will have 5-6 tabs open with all that research. They stay open until I’m done and it can actually be months. I want to start closing these things out but the thought of not being able to find them again is stopping me from doing so.
I sometimes drop long term stuff into Notes or Reminders, but I didn’t know if there is something more specific, or quite frankly, what I am even looking for.
