Bookmark manager.

Overview

URL Manager Pro is the professional bookmark manager for Safari, Chrome, Chromium, Vivaldi, Opera, iCab, and Firefox browsers, making it easier to manage bookmarks.

This is a classic available since 1996, but now rewritten as a 64-bit application.

Features:
  • System-Wide Access:You can access your bookmarks in any application through a system menu.
  • Integration : You have access to your bookmarks from your browser's menu bar and from the macOS Dock.
  • Document Storage : Your bookmarks are stored in URL Manager Pro bookmark documents, which you can store and manipulate in the normal Mac way. No need to hunt for your bookmarks in preferences folders of browsers. You can make automatic periodic saves and make copies of bookmark documents on backup devices on each save.
  • History: You can surf the Web using several different browsers while URL Manager Pro will keep recording the History of each.
  • Importing and exporting bookmarks : The File menu gives you a list of all of the browsers that URL Manager Pro can import from and export to. It lets you 'harvest' bookmarks by scanning HTML and text files for bookmarks and URLs.
  • It lets you edit and organise bookmarks fast : You can use inline editing, label and colour your bookmarks.

This is without a doubt the best bookmark manager ever created for the Mac. Been using it since the early 90's. Was going to hold off on OSX Catalina until I could find an adequate substitute. So far no luck. I am so happy to find out it is being further developed for release in October.

Since years is only the lowest level of support and development left. Questions aren't answered, even when problems occured. Any characters exceeding English are not supported and cause URLs not been opened. Many other issues. Updates of the OS also often make you stand out in the rain. Actually the support and development (also of Web Confidential) died long time ago. The author only just fiddles around a bit when forced to do so, making the App run at least on lowest gear and building a base to charge new customers. People better go searching a proper alternative ... if there is one.

I used this app for years on MacOS 9 and later on earlier versions of MacOS 10. Unfortunately, the developer had some serious health issues and all but abandoned development and support for this and Web Confidential. So I switched to BookMacster and I've been using that to update all my browser's bookmarks. Sadly, BookMacster upgraded to 10.10 or later and I can't upgrade. Sooooo, that leaves me with this guy.

Hi Mike!
I'm more or less in the same boat (OS 10.9.5 syncing Safari, Firefox and Opera): are you satisfied with this app compared to BookMacster 1? I'm just using Opera for tests purpose and I've only noticed today that BookMacster wasn't actually syncing with it... :-D
My workflow is having Safari as the repository for bookmarks then pushing them from time to time to Firefox (and possibly Opera — but there's always Opera's integrated import, if not). I've always kept this procedure as I never trusted any app to mess around with my bookmarks... ;-)

... ahem. I should have tried before posting! ;-)
My first attempt exporting bookmarks to Opera gave an error message...

Great update of an indispensable app I've been using for years—since well before OS X. Thanks to Alco for keeping it going.

This is a blast from the past that i used in my Mac OS 9 and prior and at that time Alco Bloom provided excellent help. Not so sure that URL Man is relevant or required these days since the major browsers can import bookmarks. Also twenty five bucks seems too much.

4.2 has been available since Aug-2012 direct from the developer's www site. The MU update is now the same 4.2 from that date. I can understand the developer might be very slow to notify MU of their updates. I do wish the bugs mentioned in Sep-2012 would be fixed including URLMP asking to Save Changes when no changes have been made.

I posted this to URLMP's Discussion list almost 3 weeks and as no response there I will cross post here: ------------- I have problems with URL MP 4.2.4 and SN 10.8.2 identical to ones mentioned by others. First picking a single URL or "Open in Tabs" from the Menu bar icon results in nothing happening in Safari. Does not matter if I have a Safari window open or not. Second - most time when I startup my Mac Pro in the morning URLMP shows the partially drawn window (I read this is a history window) plus my URLs. It will not hide and if I QUIT it asks to SAVE CHANGES even though no changes have been made. I've had these for a few releases and keep updating URLMP in hopes of a fix. However nothing seems to be forthcoming in recent months. thanks

Version 4.1.1 still has not addresses the 800 pound gorilla. If you load UMP on startup, you have an annoying problem at shutdown. You have to be sitting there at your computer to tell UMP to save (or not) even though there were no changes. If you just walk away, your computer will refuse to shut down. This does not happen every time, making the problem even worse. Alco, please fix this glaring problem and don't release another paid "upgrade" without major changes.

Well now I have the same problem and others with URL MP 4.2 First as Whiterock I've got the problem where even if I have not made changes it wants me to SAVE when I Restart or ShutDown my Mac. But this also seems to be associated with at Startup, URL Manager opens my url file and some blank window at the same time. THen it won't auto-hide in the background until I QUIT URLMP (telling it not to save) and relaunch it. THen only the window with my URLs open and it will autohide. This started perhaps a month ago. I've been using the Startup Cabinet on DropBox for 6 months but DB has gone through several update. Whiterock - do you happen to be using DropBox or other cloud storage for your URL file?

4.2.2 is now available. If you purchased via the App Store you need to contact the developer to get a serial number to test 4.2.2 (reportedly fixes bugs that showed up with OS X 10.8.2) http://www.url-manager.com/download/URLManagerPro4.2.2.zip

Version 4.1 brings back the "Save to Browser" option that allows you to save your bookmarks to all your browsers so for me URL Manager is the number one bookmark manager again like it always used to be since way back in the nineties. It's easy to use, very intuitive and comes with a good manual that you hardly need to use.

Still useless to me because there isn't a decent way to write the edited bookmarks back to your browser(s). The Export function doesn't do this. Back in the old days there used to be a menu option "Save to browser" but it was removed. Maybe the developer doesn't like the extra work that maintaining this function brings with it?

In Safari, one can import files exported by URL Manager. Not an elegant (read easily synchronized) solution by any means.
