Swaybien gives you a way to open up one of your bookmarks at random.

When you click on Swaybien, it will display a list of all of your bookmark folders. Clicking on a folder name will randomly select a bookmark from that bookmark folder and load it up.

Features a "Recently Used" history and some swell options to entertain you!

The name is based on the Mandarin word for "whatever", which is normally romanized as "suíbiàn".


v0.0.5 2015-02-22

  • Added an "Exclude Folders" list to the options menu, to allow you to hide certain folders from Swaybien.
  • Fixed a bug in the "Recent" list that would display the old folder name even after a folder had been renamed.
