Safari Bookmark Exporter for Mac1.1

27 April 2005

Export bookmarks from Safari to any browser.

What is Safari Bookmark Exporter for Mac

Safari Bookmark Exporter is designed to do one thing and do it well: export bookmarks from Safari (now isn't that intuitive?). You simply launch the application, click "Analyze Bookmarks", select your desired browser, click "Export Bookmarks", and then save the bookmark file to the desired location. Safari Bookmark Exporter is also smart enough to know where the default location of the bookmark files are, so you don't need to figure that out in order to have your desired browser recognize your new set of bookmarks. Safari Bookmark Exporter does NOT currently support importing bookmarks from other browsers TO Safari. Safari Bookmark Exporter supports the following browsers: Chimera/Camino (including the latest nightlies), Mozilla, Phoenix/Firebird/Firefox, Netscape, OmniWeb (any version including the latest betas of version 5), IE, iCab, and Opera (including the recently released 8.0 beta).

What's new in Safari Bookmark Exporter

Version 1.1:
  • added support for the XBEL bookmark file format
  • added support for Opera 8's bookmark file location
  • SBE now warns the user to quit browsers before exporting bookmarks to them
  • SBE now allows users to automatically replace bookmark files -- save panels no longer pop up, so USE THIS FEATURE AT YOUR OWN RISK
  • fixes problem where initiating a search for bookmarks in Firefox after exporting bookmarks caused a crash
  • SBE now allows exporting to multiple bookmark formats in one fell swoop

SBE did a good job sending the Safari bookmarks over to Firefox. Thanks for developing it. Complaints 1. There shd be a way for the exporting to be done so that the receiving browser doesn't have its existing bookmarks erased. "Frednow"'s post at Mozillazine gave good advice on how to do this. 2. After the type of merging of bookmarks described in 1., it wd be nice if there were a purge function as well that weeded out redundant bookmarks. 3. The first menu that comes up is a bit confusing. Too many choices where it's not clear how they will interact. Thanks. / Walter

Safari is the best bowser. This program lets us dabble with others such as Firefox that are beginning to reach Safari's elegance and speed. A perfectly executed program that allows Safari users to stay with Safari, without cutting off their awareness and knowledge of the imitators. Notes: What might dethrone Safari: 1) A Netscape with simple downloads, a toolbar search, real tabbed browsing (command or option click Expansion), and a new classic interface. 2) A Firefox with simple downloads, a Netscape classic interface (not the ugly one you can already get), real tabbed browsing (command or option click Expansion), a better engine (messes up a lot of basic html). {Props to plug-in developers for Firefox (but make some for Safari again, please).} Sincerely, mistahaack

That was extraordinarily simple. I wish I had known about this program a long time ago. Apple should definitely consider bundling this program with the OS. It took a grand total of three clicks to import my bookmarks into my other browsers. Heck, the program even knew where to send them without me having to search. This program is the true definition of ease-of-use.

How sad that this little app is needed. How happy that someone wrote it! It worked quickly, easily and perfectly for me. I did have to run it twice, though. The first time, I wasn't aware that I had Firefox open, and it didn't pick up the export. After I quit Firefox and ran Exporter again, voila! My thanks to the developer.

OK, guys. If SBE isn't working, you've gotta send me an e-mail. An obscure comment on MacUpdate saying that it just doesn't work won't help me in figuring out the problem. Because bookmark file formats change often, I keep SBE constantly updated. So please send me an e-mail at simX [at] mac [dawt] com if SBE isn't working for you. (BTW, it works for me with Firefox 1.0, or I would've fixed the problem by now.)

This is very cool! Now, if there was a way to automatically update all the selected browsers (check mark instead of button in the GUI would work for me :) to Safari it would be cooler than cool. And if it could do it automatically at a scheduled time... It would be even cooler than cooler than cool.

This is a wonderful little program that came to my rescue just when I needed it. I'm amazed that Apple doesn't include bookmark exporting in the Safari product, but SBE fills the gap nicely. I hope Apple buys the program, includes it in Safari, and pays the developer of SBE a nice sum of money. He or she deserves it.

Something is wrong with your installation if Camino crashes on you... I have been usiing Camino/Chimera since day one and yes, the first few releases after 0.7 (when the name was changed to Camino) were unstable, that is not the case now, Camino NEVER crashes on me... NEVER. (Camino Build ID: 2003042205) Further, there is a freware tool to import bookmarks to Safari from Camino, I forget the name, search for it.
