Fetching is a new kind of bookmarking app. It keeps track of all the web pages you visit so you can easily re-find them later. It's like your own personal Google -- a search engine for all the webpages you've seen.
Every website you visit except 1) when you are in private browsing or incognito modes, and 2) those sites you specifically choose to filter.
Fetching.io has you covered. You can bookmark pages with as single click directly from your browser.
No! Fetching Cloud runs within your existing browser process and consumes almost no additional resources. Only the plain text of the pages you visit are indexed so the impact on your network connection is also very low. Images and video are ignored. Fetching Native does require more resources but its memory footprint and CPU usage are minuscule as it's only parsing relatively small amounts of text.
Yes! One click and Fetching will stop indexing until you turn it back on. When in private or incognito mode, Fetching won't record or index anything. You can also specify simple URL filters to ignore any website you like.
Only what's visible on the page is indexed. Since websites don't generally display this critical information (think passwords) Fetching will never see it either. Fetching Native stores the search index on your hard drive -- nothing is ever transmitted over the Internet. We also do not store the credit card you use when subscribing.
Fetching Cloud is free for 30 days, then monthly and yearly subscriptions are available. Fetching Native also has a 30 day trial. Please see the get fetching section to learn about pricing and other options.
Functionally, they are nearly identical. Both index the full text of every page you visit; and both offer the same sophisticated search. Some people prefer a native app because all their data is stored locally on their computer and not exposed to the Internet or managed by a third party.
Since Fetching Native stores all your data on your local hard disk, accessing it from your mobile phone or another computer can be difficult. To address this, Fetching Native comes with a Cloud account to which all your bookmarks can be automatically synced in real time. This ensures you always have access to the sites you've bookmarked.
No! You'll receive updates and bug fixes, including all new product versions, while your yearly subscription is active. If you choose to not renew, Fetching will continue to work forever but you'll stop receiving any updates. The included Cloud account used for bookmark syncing requires an active subscription.
This is underway but not yet available. If you like, we can notify you when Linux is supported.

On the Mac, simply drag
/Application/fetching.app to the Trash then restart your computer. To permanently remove all fetching data drag the
~/Library/Application Support/Fetching folder to the trash.
First, go to
General and make sure that
Automatically launch Fetching when your computer starts up is unchecked. Quit Fetching then restart your computer. Copy to the
~/Library/Application Support/Fetching folder to the same location on your destination machine. Finally, re-install Fetching after downloading from the official download page. Fetching Native should now start with your existing data and account settings.
You get to keep it! It's very easy to export your bookmarks and search index. You'll have ample warning after cancellation to export your data.
