Editors' review

This Firefox extension takes a stab at solving a common Web problem: finding again that which had been found before. WebMynd adds two very useful functions to your browsing: site-by-site recording of where you've been, and integrating your history and Delicious bookmarks into specific Google searches.

The site-by-site recording creates a timeline view of your browsing and a photo browser-like display. Want the site you found Friday after lunch? Rewind using the Reel view. Looking for the site with the purple logo thing? The Grid view is good for your visual memory. Since you might not want a record of every single site you visit, WebMynd lets you add sites to a permanent "do not record" list and zap specific site records.

There's a small performance hit using WebMynd--on the order of 100-200 milliseconds for complex sites. WebMynd keeps your last 30 days worth of history. We were impressed with the way it merges a relevant list of sites you've visited into your Google searches. The developers plan to add Yahoo BOSS search results in the near future.

    "Save yourself hours of frustration and DON'T install."

    August 23, 2009   |   By enlishsettlement

    Version: WebMynd 0.6.2

    Pros

    never used it - don't know (would have picked 0 stars if I could)

    Cons

    Saved a .jpg of every page I visited for over a year. It took over 8 hours to delete the 9Gb it took up in only 3 folders. That doesn't include the time it took to figure out how to open the folders they were in without freezing the computer solid.

    Summary

    I never even used this program - had no idea what it was doing in the background!

    "Unistalled as soon as I read more about it."

    September 06, 2008   |   By Zorched

    Version: WebMynd 0.6.2

    Pros

    Flashy. Pretty. Convenient. Looks like the i-phone-like interface that is becoming so popular. Works well to maintain an organized history of visited pages.

    Cons

    According to their own web site, my screen text is sent to their servers for "Indexing". Uninstalled as soon as I read that.

    Summary

    Major privacy concern in allowing someone else to receive every word of text in my browser, no matter what the use. So much so in fact, it greatly outweighs any advantage the program may offer. Offer one that exclusively maintains content on my machine and nowhere else and I might try it again.
