Brave Browser History Search

Recommended Posts

You are welcome, I had this in mind but never implemented it because I am using another Alfred solution to bookmark pages for being independent of Browsers ;)

 

Do you think it would make sense to incorporate the Bookmarks results in history search or is it ok to separate?

Definitely separate. Guess there's no way to have it appear in the main results?

 

No because there is some code required to get bookmarks and history entries. Main results in Alfred are indexed data which is not the case here.

now that i've switched from chrome to brave, i'm interested in your solution for browser-independent bookmarks.

 

while i could use your workflow, i'm intrigued by a browser-independent solution.

You would need to export each individual bookmark to a filetype the system understands, such as .URL files, and then point Alfred to the directory they're stored in.

Ah, nice one!... now I just want to edit it so that it opens from the browser from which it extracted the bookmark instead of the default browser. (I use Chrome for work stuff and Brave for personal...  😉

Yup, I think that is the one I picked up -- the github page for the other one redirected to that one. Thanks!

You legend! Is there a way to remove the need for the bm script filter to just search for the bookmark direct, like with the native bookmark search?

No. Script Filters can't dump their results into Alfred's default search. You can call it via a Hotkey instead.
