Abstract

Disclosed is a software system for automatic sorting of user saved URLs(Uniform Resource Locator) in the bookmark lists of the internet browsers. Currently existing browsers like Netscape* or Internet Explorer** do not take sorting into account at all when the user saves URLs. This new idea sorts the saved URLs automatically in alphabetic order by the URL's title in a fashion preset in the browser's configuration settings. Automatic sorting can be turned ON or OFF by the user in the configuration settings and once turned ON, the sorting is done in following way. First, following options can be preset by the user: 0. Automatic Sorting(On or Off)
