WeblocMaker is a simple utility used for creating Mac or Windows Internet Location files. Internet Location files open a specific URL when opened, and can also be used to link to certain radio stations or whatever else you want them to. Special thanks to Simon Pride.

Can this convert between Mac ".webloc" and Windows ".url" files?

If not, that would be a really handy features, especially if it could convert whole folders full of links at a time.

That would be nice to see. i have allot of webloc files that i need to convert to url but don't have the time to open each one in ie and convert them to url.

Another little app that does exactly what it says on the tin (to quote the notorious British TV advert). It writes .webloc files which can be used to launch sites directly. I use this to launch pages that don't normally have a URL bar in a browser - particularly pages that have a media player embedded such as the BBC Radio player pages. Copying the link that launches them and putting that URL into WeblocMaker gives a persistent file from which you can then launch the radio station of your choice.

There's one puzzling omission - you can't paste text into either field, either from a menu (there is no Edit menu) or with Command-V. This is somewhat irksome given the often cumbersome nature of URLs that you might wish to save. If I had one wish it's that the developer add Paste as soon as possible. Other than that, excellent stuff!

I've just heard from the developer (amazing response!) that the app's being entirely rewritten in Cocoa (believe it or not, it's currently implemented in AppleScript!) and will have pasting enabled for both URL and name fields. I'm hugely impressed. Watch this space!
