13 Nov 2023 The Simple Chrome Extension for Direct Navigation

Whether you're switching between code repositories or tracking multiple development environments, brings a streamlined approach to accessing the specific parts of your projects with ease.

An extension born out of necessity, it simplifies bookmark management for developers and product owners who value their time.

The Genesis of

As a developer and product creator, I found myself constantly navigating between different parts of the same platforms. From Github to Heroku, Siteground to Figma, I was juggling multiple projects across these platforms and quickly realised the need for a more efficient way to access specific parts of these domains.

The existing bookmark management systems were not cutting it. They were slow, clunky, and often suggested the most frequently or recently visited links, which were rarely the ones I needed. I needed a solution that was quick, visual, and personalised to my workflow. And thus, was born.

How Works is a Chrome extension that presents a clear, simple user interface each time you open a new tab. Instead of the traditional text-based bookmark dropdown with deep hierarchies, presents your bookmarks visually. Each link is associated with an icon for the domain it relates to, making it quick and easy to navigate.

The name of the link can be personalised, allowing you to choose the exact title that makes sense to you. For instance, for GitHub, you can simply use the name of the repo. For Heroku, it could be the name of the app. This gives you the power to organise your bookmarks in a way that suits your workflow.

Project-Based Navigation

One of the standout features of is the project-based navigation. On the left sidebar of the extension, you'll find a list of all the projects you're actively working on. With a single click, you can filter your bookmarks based on the project you're working on.

For example, if you're working on a project and need to access the API code repository on GitHub, simply open a new tab, click on the project from the list, and instantly, all the links shown to you are filtered to only show anything related to that project.
