How I use Alfred for Safari bookmarks

Safari is my default browser. The Alfred feature I’m going to tell you about works with what ever browser you have set as your default. You’ll also need the Powerpack.

I launch all my bookmarks using Alfred. Alfred recognizes URLs when I type them into the Alfred box so I can launch a website in Safari from anywhere. Once I’ve typed a URL Alfred remembers it in a history.

Now the next time I want to launch a bookmark that’s in my history all I have to do is start typing in the Alfred box. For example, if I want to go to the Mac Stories website I can type “mac” in Alfred box and hit ⌘3. As you can see the macdrifter and macsparky URLs also appeared.

This saves me several mouse clicks over using bookmarks in Safari. And remember, you can launch a bookmark this way from anywhere.

This feature can be enabled under Features > Web Search > URLs/History.
