What's a "To-Do" URL?
A "To-Do" URL
is a link to a site that you'll have (or want) to visit
in the near future.
It's a sort of "temporary bookmark" you want
to fix/manage somewhere to remind yourself to read it,
so important/permanent to be added to your browser's bookmarks.
"To-Do" URLs and Dock
Mac OS X has a cool "built-in" feature
that lets you save those links to your Dock by simply dragging
the small icon that you find at the left of the URL in the
Address Bar (of your browser) to the right side of the Dock.
The URL icon will stay there and
clicking it will open the page in your default browser.
(Note: some people use this feature also to store "permanent
bookmarks" of sites they visit every day)
an overcrowded Dock (pictured below), and
yet preserving the simplicity to add
an URL with
a simple drag & drop operation.
How does it works?
It's simple: open your browser* and
visit a web page. Drag the small icon (called "favicon")
that you find at the left of the URL in the Address Bar to
the left or right border of your screen (depending on the
Hot Edge you chose in the Preferences). The Urly
drawer will automatically pop out allowing you to drop the URL at the
desired position (see below).

All the URLs added to the Urly drawer will
be accessible by right-clicking (or press-and-hold) the Urly
icon in the Dock:
Urly only works with Safari.
