How to use Areas, Projects and Notes in Horse Browser
Posted by Elly on 22nd April 2024.
In our last post, we shared how to turn Horse Browser into your own productivity system. Now we’ll be diving a little deeper on this topic and introducing you to Areas, Projects & Notes and how to use them. These are super useful tools for organising your online research and managing different projects.

➤ What are Areas and Projects for?

Many early users of Horse Browser asked the same question: 'When are you introducing folders?'. After deep-diving online, they wanted to group pages and Trails into folders, based on different research topics and tasks.
This request inspired us to introduce Areas and Projects. An Area acts as an umbrella container for your Trails so you can group your Trails by subject. A Project is where you can initiate a new project and features a Project page, where you can name your project and make some handy notes.
