Firefox has released the version 4 with several new features and the EasyBM plugin (add-on) has been updated too. You can download the latest EasyBM plugin for Firefox here.

Clicking on the link will let you download and install the add-on. In case, Firefox wants to save the file, let it save and then execute the file through Firefox. It will install the add-on and prompt you to restart Firefox. This plugin is very easy to install and lets you bookmark the page you are currently browsing. Just click on the bookmark icon in the right side of the status bar and a pop-up window will open up. Choose the group where you want to add this site and edit the title and description. A simple click on “Save Bookmark” will save it for you.

Clarification: A few users have sent us feedback wondering how could we make their bookmarks page public without their consent. Please note that we are not making all the bookmarks pages public. This public view facility is only available to those who explicitly request for this through the feedback option on their personal page.

On with the original announcement now: We have launched a limited beta test of the public view of your online bookmarks at EasyBM. While EasyBM offers you a place to store all your private bookmarks online so that you can refer to them from a password-protected page, there is a strong demand for creating resource pages where one can record links for a particular type of resource and make these available to everyone. We have complied…

Of course, we are expecting you to create a new bookmarks page and not make your private bookmarks public. So if you want to create a page listing all universities in USA, you can register a new bookmarks account and add categorized list of all the universities there. Now this page will be available at www.easybm.com/p/nickname (p=public here) for anyone to view and use without requiring a password or any other validation. Feel free to share your link on Facebook, Twitter or emails.

You can manage your links – add, edit or remove – from your usual page at www.easybm.com/nickname. Right now, you have to request for changing the status of your page to public through Feedback option – soon you can do this yourself.

Please share your thoughts on this new development through the Feedback option or by commenting here. We will be adding several features to the public view page soon – so keep watching.

Thanks for your support – we have now crossed 75,000 registrations and more and more people are joining and benefiting by storing their bookmarks online and accessing them from anywhere.

We keep trying various ways to improve your experience in using our online bookmarks site. We recently ran a series of optimizations on the rendering engine that displays your bookmarks page and managed to cut down the loading time by a nice chunk. Hope you have already noticed the improved speed. You can also use this site optimization service for your own website – visit their site and contact them for a quote.

Rest assured that we are constantly on work to improve the features and speed to make this site as easy and fast to use as we can. Your support and feedback keeps us going.

Please do visit our Facebook page and click on ‘Like’ to tell your friends about your favorite bookmarking service so that they start enjoying the same flexibility and portability that you do. Thanks!
