The strength of EasyBM private bookmarks is its multi-column, multi-row layout that puts the maximum number of bookmarks in front of you – above the fold – ready to be 1-clicked.

However if you are using a PDA or a mobile to browse the Internet, you cannot see multi-column data easily. So we have introduced a new way to see your favorite links and browse to your target sites on your handhelds. If you visit
http://www.easyBM.com/mobile/?u=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD, you can see all your links in a single column. Just scroll down to your desired site link and click with the joystick or OK button.

For best results, keep the number of links in this account low and put only the links that you will like to browse with your handheld. Also, if you set the homepage of your mobile to this page, you will have all the links ready, right in front of you when you access the browser.

Note: This post is made in a lighter mood and you may skip it without any problems 🙂

We have this site put up on the HEDIR forum for reviews and a nice lady, Aunt Renee  recently mentioned that EasyBM sounds like an acronym for easy bowel movement.

While this is an amusing comment, I want to assure you that we will continue to offer an Easy BookMark service only and do not intend to offer products for easing your bowel movements 😉

Hi

I want to announce our most important update in the recent times. We have implemented the multi-column, multi-row stacked layout that will make this bookmarking tool extremely useful for the most demanding user.

For quite some time, I have been worrying about the wastage of space in the lower half of the screen when your groups have few sites each.

Multi-column layout without stacking

I have been silently testing a layout that will help reduce this space wastage. This multi-column, multi-row layout helps you to squeeze many more links above the fold, thereby making it easy for you to 1-click even more sites.

How to get your groups stacked for better organization

You have to be a little adventerous. While we are working on an easy interface for this, you will have to play a little with numbers for now.

– First you must login to your easyBM page with ‘Remember me’ ticked.

– Now enter this in the location bar (or address bar) ->www.easybm.com/stackform.php

– You will see a screen like the following ->

Stacking of bookmark groups

We want to have Forums group in the 2nd column at the top, so I put 2 in column and in row fields. Now I want Blogs group in the same column but after Forums. So I put 2 in column and 2 in row fields.
Similarly, you can see how we implement stacking in the 4th column. You may have noted that column 3 is missing. Actually the numbers have to be in ascensding order but all numbers do not need to be present.

There you are. If you are feeling adventerous and want to make the best use of the screen space, you can implement stacked groups and 1-click to many more sites.
