Concierge is a drawer-based bookmark assistant for Safari
Version: 1.4.12Concierge is a drawer-based bookmark assistant for Safari, Apple Computer's web browser. Concierge is merely an assistant -- it is not meant to completely replace Safari's bookmark management scheme. Instead, Concierge acts more like an easily-accessible bookmark Scratchpad.

Operating System: Mac OS X
Web bookmarks, Address Book cards, email links, and Finder file/folder links are stored and managed in a drawer attached to either side of Safari's browser window.
Safari's bookmarks and history items are also accessible in Concierge's drawer, with on-the-fly searching available to quickly find those buried links.
One of Concierge's (potentially) more appealing features is the ability to "focus" the Scratchpad the web site that is currently being viewed. This means that only the links relevant to the current web site appear, leaving the remainder temporarily out of sight. Since this may not work for everyone, a Preferences window allows you modify Concierge's behavior.
Here are some key features of "Concierge":
Concierge's Scratchpad can handle several different kinds of links:
· URL bookmarks Regular bookmarks that we've all come to know, love, and collect until we have an unmanageable mess.
· Email links These are normally found as simple mailto: links on web pages. Concierge expands on the simple variety by allowing you to specify additional primary, copy and blind-copy recipients as well as an email subject. Clicking on an email link brings up your email client with this information already filled in.
· File aliases Drag files and folders from the Finder to make them easily accessible.
· Notes While not really a link of any kind, a Concierge note gives you a place to store short messages and have them readily available. Let the mouse hover over the note's title in the drawer and the message will appear as a tooltip -- you don't even have to open the note to read it.
· Address Book cards and groups You can drag your cards and groups from Address Book and into the Scratchpad. Cards appear as they do in Address Book's list view; groups appear as folders with the group's members inside. Double-clicking a card will display its contents within Address Book. Editing cards also happen in Address Book rather than Concierge. You can send email to the people or organizations represented by the cards from with Concierge using the Send Email menu item.
· Safari 1.3 or later.
· Concierge bookmarks are not saved between Safari sessions.
· The number of Safari bookmarks that appear in the Bookmarks drawer tab are limited.
