It would be great if I could somehow save/favorite the challenge checkers I use frequently to a list where I could access them quickly and easily.  I realize I can bookmark these in my browser and I have done that, but it would be even better if I could access them directly from the project gc site somewhere.  Thanks.

I would add a +1 vote for this but apparently it can only be done by "some users" - clearly not me sad

That is not an answer but a comment.
It is the points in the QA that determine if you can vote. I dont remember the limits
That would be helpful, but it would really be helpful if cache owners linked to a challenge checker on the cache page.
If you use a desktop browser the pgc script can add existing checkers to all challengers even if the CO has added it

It has many other useful functions
Thanks Target!  That script does look extremely useful.  I still like the idea of favoriting, and recalling favorite checkers directly from project gc.

A workoround is to create a webpage with the links to the checker. I have done similar bookmark link for pgc pages by creating a HTML page. I have made one for mapcompare filters i have often used.
I have create a text file with .html sufflix in my public dropbox folder

Take the example #3 links to the checker and add the challenge name

And with html start and som formating you will get a webpage. The checkers will be autorun i the background if you are a paying member. How often depends of their distance to your home coordinates

Creating a dummy html page is a good work around, I like it.  I was actually embedding the urls to the checkers into a spreadsheet, but I like your idea better.  Thanks again.
