I think I am overlooking something, but I was wondering how I can get TWO (I don't really know the name of them) Bookmark quicklaunch bars?? I am a HEAVY multitasker whom would greatly utilize multiple "BQLB"s

No,no, you know how you have a Yahoo/Google Toolbar IN your browser, and then you have your bookmark toolbar? I want two or more bookmark toolbars

What the hell for? That would just create work for you because you'd have to remember what wesites were in which bookmark section.

Another way of handling lots of websites is to simply right click on the address bar at the web site you want to go to often and copy the highlighted address.

Then go to explorer and choose a folder to contain all the web links you visit often, say "Your Documents", create a folder "mysites", then in the explorer menu there is a "file" "new" "shortcut" option -- just paste the copied address into the shortcut and put the shortcut in the new "mysites" folder.

Once you have that figure out, you can put that folder location in your web broswer default open tab location address (like some people put msn, yahoo, google, etc.) so that folder opens up automatically once you open your web browser.

It may not be a better alternative to "favorites", but you can get more control over how to use that info.

How does that give you more control than using the bookmark feature of the web browser?

It certainly would not make it easier to easily navigate multiple bookmarks on the fly ... you'd have to return to that homepage and then choose the new link, which is twice as many actions as clicking on the bookmark bar.

If you are using Firefox (the OP neglected to mention his browser), you can use this this extension to get multiple bookmark toolbars. I'm using it right now and it works great.
