UPDATE after v.1.0.0, 2024 - 06-12: BrainTool is revolutionary for me. Because virtually everything we do these days is online / web-based, we are forced to spend the bulk of our days in the browser. BrainTool truly solves an enormous issue, which is organizing the absolute deluge of sites, windows, tabs & junk we have to slog through each day. It is very much different from bookmarks, because BrainTool is intended specifically for quickly & easily managing active / working / functional tab... Show more

I've only been using BrainTool a short amount of time, but already I'm incredibly impressed. It offers extensive customization and personalization, allowing me to organize things exactly how I want. I love that I can choose to display the menu as either a separate tab or a sidebar. One of the standout features is its minimal permission requirements and strong focus on user privacy. I've tried other options, but BrainTool far surpasses them. It integrates seamlessly with my workflow, especiall... Show more

Came from Tabs Outliner and I'm currently testing version 1.0, although a different philosophy, I looks very promising, specially the developer commitment and upgrade do manifest v.3 which will diminish out options a lot. It seems one of the best option in fast development in 2024.

Impressed with what BrainTool can do! The concept is brilliant, integrating bookmarks and tabs seamlessly with emacs org-mode notes fits into my workflow perfectly. Despite the UI being organized differently that I expected, the convenience of having everything in one place is noteworthy. Looking forward to future updates and improvements. 5 stars for integration with emacs org-mode :)

The concept of this extension is brilliant but after having tried it for a month, I cannot get past the bugs. It hangs often in the "Starting BrainTool" step without resolution. I am going to be trying out other extensions that have the ability to add notes to bookmarks, are searchable and classify them with labels.

Painfully buggy.

I've been looking for an extension like this for a long time. I haven't used it for long, but so far I like it more than Toby because Toby doesn't have folder hierarchy (as far as I can tell). A little unpolished still, but it seems to get the job done. I'm a bit sorry to see that it hasn't been updated in a year.

I downloaded this about 30 minutes ago and my pistons are firing at full speed. Whenever you try a new tool, you go through your very specific needs for it and check things off as you go in the order of your priority. If it lacks those top functionalities, full stop and find something else. Towards the bottom of the list of needs, you ask if you can live without the function or wait until it's there. It truly feels like the developers KNOW my brain. I checked off every bullet point on my list... Show more

It's pretty good, wish I could make a new folder while saving pages though.

You *can* make a new folder (topic) while saving pages. Just use the new topic name while saving to create a new top level topic, or use something like 'Projects:New-Project' to save the page to a newly created 'New-Project' topic which will be created under 'Projects'
