Started a blog!

We started a blog to be more open about our product vision and guide users to use Tefter effectively.

Here's our first post 👉 https://tefter.substack.com/p/coming-soon

Tefter Teams Beta

We are stoked to announce that our Tefter for Teams offering has entered a beta testing phase 🎉

Our journey ⛵️ to enable team collaboration in Tefter started with the Slack app. But we didn't stop there, the next step was to bring collaboration to the Web with all the functionality to manage teams and their bookmarks through tefter.io. We then implemented a permissions system, revisited public teams and overhauled our browser extension Omni, to make room for teams.


It has been revamped to integrate teams. Install it now:


You can switch between teams and your personal workspace with ctrl + h and ctrl + l as well as with alt + n where n is the number of the team to switch to. To surface the aliases view, hit alt + a.

With the latest version of Omni you can:

  • Add a bookmark to a team
  • Add a bookmark to a list belonging to a team
  • List the top bookmarks of a team
  • Search a team's bookmarks
  • Search and resolve team's aliases (think alt + a)


We need more people to try Tefter for Teams. Help us further validate our product ideas, make any necessary tweaks and iron out issues based on your feedback.

To create a team, head over to https://tefter.io/teams/free-trial and enjoy a free 28 day trial.

⏳Don't have time to create a new org? Join one!
We have created two Tefter teams to foster communities around the Ruby and Elixir programming languages.

Joining will give you read-only access, contact us at support@tefter.io if you wish to become a moderator 💪.

Join and treat yourself to ⚡️ instant access ⚡️ to an abundance of curated relevant links and aliases.

Having Omni installed you can can use the /go command to navigate to an alias. For example you can type /go gems/rails to search for the Rails gem on rubygems.org.

📣 Finally, remember that open-source teams are free. If you represent such an organization create a team and let us know at support@tefter.io.

Omni - Aliases Search

In the latest version of our extension you can search and navigate to your aliases.

All you need to do is type /g and all your aliases will appear. You can narrow down your search by typing more characters, select an alias with the arrow keys or mouse and press return.

Omni - Tabs, History and Bookmarks Search


We are delighted to announce that we have released a new version of our Chrome and Firefox extension. Rewritten from scratch, it brings a feature codenamed "Omni".

With Omni, you can quickly search and navigate open tabs, history and bookmarks.

To trigger Omni, press alt + k or option + k on MacOS.

We automatically group links by site / category, press the tab key to move to the next group, or shift + tab to move to the previous.

Install it now

❗️ Version 1.1.0 of the Chrome extension is be approved any time now. The currently available 1.0.0 does not include bookmarks search.

We are already working on the next iteration of this feature and we're thirsty for your feedback. Try it and for any ideas or bugs you may want to report, shoot an email at support+omni@tefter.io

New way to install the app

Improved Bookmarks Import

When you import bookmarks from the browser, (see: https://tefter.io/import_bookmarks/start) we now create a list for each of your folders, even nested ones.

Compact Bookmarks View

This is one of our most requested features. Our users asked for a compact view of their resources and we listened!

In https://tefter.io/bookmarks you'll find a new settings button. There you can select the new compact view.

Then we'll display up to a hundred bookmarks per page instead of the default 18.
