Bookmarks evolved as we added more devices, like smartphones and tablets, and today we can choose from dozens of apps which collect and store items to be read or used later, ostensibly when we’re not so busy. Here’s yet another one.
Stash? Cache? Stache?
Simply put, Stache is a Mac app which stores items you may want to keep for later viewing. That makes it particularly good for read later items, but also research, and much better than typical browser bookmarks.
Why? Bookmarks don’t tell you much. Most of the time we stuff a web site into a bookmark folder in the browser and forget about it.
Stache makes it easier to capture and easier to view bookmarks later. Instead of just a link to a website page, which often changes anyway, Stache stashes the webpage into a cache for later viewing.
Every page you want to keep is stored and a visual thumbnail created to make it easier to find.
Stache doesn’t just save what you can see in the open browser window, either. It saves the entire full-page screenshot with each bookmark. That way you can read webpage articles even when not connected to the internet.
Open Stache and browse the saved website bookmarks with ease. Click to select a website, then use the Quick Look function (spacebar) to view the whole page. It’s that easy.
How do you capture bookmarks?
Stache comes with Safari and Chrome extensions (but not Firefox) to make it easy to add a website to your library.
And, yes, there’s a Stache app for iPhone and iPad, and both include iCloud sync so your stashed cache goes wherever you go. Stache is much like a number of other website article stash catchers, including Pocket, my favorite.
