I have been utilizing Google Maintain for practically all of my bookmarking for the final half-dozen years or extra. It properly syncs my bookmarks, notes, and reminders between my cellphone and any laptop that I exploit when logged into my Chrome profile. Sadly, my days of utilizing Chrome as my main bookmarking device could also be coming to an finish in December. 

Final week I began to note a bit warning seem at any time when I bookmarked a website with the Google Maintain Chrome extension. The warning reads, 

“beginning on December fifth, 2022, notes created right here won’t save mechanically. Additionally, you will need to entry and edit present notes related to a URL through Maintain.” 

Aside from that little observe showing when utilizing the Chrome extension, up to now I have never been capable of finding any official statements from Google about this variation. If Google actually is discontinuing help for the Maintain Chrome extension, that can most likely be the top of utilizing it for bookmarking and I am going to migrate to utilizing OneNote for all bookmarking. 

Sadly, this is not the primary time that Google has ended help for a bookmarking instruments that was standard with lecturers. A few of us nonetheless fondly bear in mind Google Pocket book and the frustration we felt when Google terminated that product again in 2009. Fortuitously, there are many different choices for on-line bookmarking together with the aforementioned OneNote, EverNote, and the native bookmarking device in Chrome. 

Even when that is the top of bookmarking with Maintain, I am going to most likely nonetheless use the Maintain Android app for creating location-based reminders for myself.
