FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • ISN'T THIS JUST A BOOKMARK MANAGER?

    Whilst there are quite a few extra facilities offered by Link-Monkey, if we just focus on the Bookmarking aspects here, then YES it's a Bookmark Manager, but Link-Monkey is a Bookmark manager you will WANT To use.

    The standard bookmarking facilities offered by most browsers do not (in our humble opinion) give bookmarks the importance they deserve. Link-Monkey uses Tags instead of folders to make categorisation easier and more fluid, and the Search Bar/Tag Cloud combination makes recall faster.

    At some point over the next few days you will come across a link that you know will be important. If you have to think twice about how to file it away, or if you know you might struggle to recall it later on, then Link-Monkey is for you!

  • BUT I JUST USE GOOGLE INSTEAD!

    There will always be some information/links that we stumble upon. Sometimes those links come to us via email etc, and sometime through looking at page 9 of the results in Google (for an obscure search).

    Link-Monkey allows you to store these links along with the keywords that YOU want to use when recalling the links.

    There will also be cases (like company intranets) where Google can't help you.

  • WHAT ARE THE SECURITY RISKS?

    [Technical context follows] Link-Monkey works by creating a server on your desktop - HOWEVER this server will only ever respond to requests from your your computer's loopback interface (which is why the Link-Monkey web address is '127.0.0.1'). Any interaction which may come from your network card (e.g. an unauthorised request) is discarded.

    If you run the Spotify or DropBox desktop apps, you probably have something similar on your computer already (did they tell you that?). Unlike those apps however, Link-Monkey will not send anything outside of your computer.
