When you find something of importance, you instantly press Ctrl+D on your keyboard (Bookmarking Shortcut) or bookmark it from the menu bar. Your bookmarks are safe and sound in your computer. But what if you aren’t home and you want to check on your favorite site without the hassle of remembering or typing the full URL? Skloog comes in handy at such times.

When you click the add button and start typing the URL, the area below gets populated with the most probable links. But if you want to add a site of your choice which isn’t already available, you can submit it to Skloog with a Label and also an icon. You may also save useful bookmarklets on Skloog.
