Organize, verify, and sync bookmarks between multiple browsers.

Overview

Note: Bookdog is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.

Bookdog manages the bookmarks you have in

  • Camino
  • del.icio.us
  • Google Bookmarks
  • OmniWeb
  • Opera
  • Netscape
  • Safari
  • Shiira 2.0 or later
Managing bookmarks includes
  • Sorting to your specifications
  • Keeping them sorted, by its built-in companion, Bookwatchdog
  • Detecting duplicates, to your specifications
  • Verifying bookmarks, fixing broken ones, advising on questionable ones
    • Migrating bookmarks between browsers
    • Migrates attributes such as descriptions, keywords
    • Converts Tags to Hierarchy and back
  • Powerful searching
  • All capabilities extend to bookmarks on other networked Macs.
  • Can also create or read standalone or "backup" bookmarks files.

What's new in Bookdog

Version 5.3.21:
  • The only change is that this version is signed with our Developer ID, so that it can be installed in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Users who already have BookMacster 5.3.20 installed and working may skip this update, even if they update to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. It is only needed if Bookdog is re-installed after OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

So either because this app hasn't been updated or because it wasn't intended to do it - it can't import Opera bookmarks and can't even see them. Only Firefox and Safari bookmarks can be imported.

OMG omg, we get to go back to BookDog! Which has always been more than enough ... and which was sorely missed. Total bookmark fanatics can always use BookMacster--but this is a unique utility (unfortunately--there should be more bookmark managers for OS X.) Yes, the interface is ... strange ... and there could be a few less clicks, a built in sync-saver instead of having to open a file ... but right now, this is the best. (Please do not *think* of buying URLManager Pro.)

I've been a VERY longtime BookDog user and supporter. SheepDog reports that iCloud sync and BookDog don't play well together, necessitating a side-grade over to their new app, BookMacster. Downloading and trying BookMacster, it seemed to work just fine. But I have to be honest here - seeing the BookMacster interface (a more lively and colorized implementation of the old BookDog interface) reminded me that this app is impossibly complex-looking and non-intuitive for such a simple task set. Maybe this is ingratitude after years of loyalty, but I just didnt want to spend $20 merely to sort my bookmarks - all I really need from BookDog. So I downloaded a free quick n' dirty utility that does it - and that's when I realized.... I guess the fact that SheepDog has been so attached to what has to be one of the worst app icons in the Mac OS world, while its not a crime to love an awful icon (and we have to give them some slack, it's obviously an icon of a beloved pet) this is evidence that they just don't put much stock in making user interfaces that are intuitive, and - dare I say it? - delight the eye. BookDog's interface looks like a Gannt chart for complex project management software, when a simple set of checkboxes could do the same thing faster, easier and more attractively. So, four stars for a great app that does sorting and a whole lot more (particularly, migrating bookmarks between various browser apps), but some points off for a needlessly counterintuitive interface.

The Texas-sized spread of tabs almost made me forget how ugly the app's icon is. Or maybe it was the ugly icon that nearly distracted me from the GUI atrocities. This app works well enough, but it has the mangiest coat I've ever seen.

It's great to see that Sheep Systems is still updating Bookdog even though they have their newer app BookMacster out. I will stay with Bookdog as it (IMO) is better at what it and even BookMacster's intended functions are, less prone to problems (BookMacster is not only more complicated to setup and use; but ruined my bookmark structure (thankfully I had a backup available) so bad that I had to replace the file in Safari (my primary browser). What for me sets Bookdog apart from it's competition (and why partially I keep using it) is it's ability to verify sites still exist, sorting of bookmarks and keeping things organized between various browsers (I know the way it does this mayn't be as well designed (supposedly) as BookMacster; but I find Bookdog's implementation works better and has never (let me repeat that), never ruined my bookmark structure) effortlessly. If Sheep System's can take a single (though I doubt I'm the only one) customer's suggestion, do away with BookMacster, renew Bookdog and leave it that way. The foray into BookMacster was for a valid reason; but it (by user comments) isn't what users seem to want, whereas Bookdog is still going strong (due to user demand) well after it was officially shelved to be replaced by BookMacster.

I think I have used it a long time ago for exporting my Camino bookmarks to Google Bookmarks, but it doesn't seem to work anymore: it pretends doing something, connecting and so on but in the end my Google bookmarks stay untouched... Though it seems to work to sync with the other browsers.

It just works on 10.4 thru 10.6. Admittedly, I don't try to deal with different folder hierarchies. Only thing missing is Chrome support. They want 20$ for an update including this... unlikely. @those wo are complaining about the ugly icon: you are aware you're free to change icons to whatever your heart desires, aren't you?

Xmarks does this for free, it works only with Firefox and Safari, though (but really, most people use those on the Mac anyway). I like the fact that it syncs my bookmarks between my Dell at work and my Macs at home. Why pay for something that is offered free elsewhere?

Typical of this fine developer to include support for something like an Opera beta! I've used this program for several years now, and it has never failed me or messed up my bookmarks, though it's powerful enough to cause problems if you don't get the syncs going in the right direction or don't understand what a "bi-lateral" sync does and the like. Recently, I made a real bonehead mistake on a sync, (my fault - I put the settings wrong) and ended up with thousands of duplicates in Safari. Rather than try to sort it out, I used time machine to get back the Safari folder from earlier in the day. If you have problems, contact the developer. The personal support has always been fantastic.

Ok I just realized checking the website that Bookdog will be left to die and replaced by Bookmacster... the way this new piece of software deals with collections seems to be better according to the developer.. I tried the beta.. and I found it more complicated than bookdog and definitely as ugly (I hate ugly interfaces.. especially these days that the MAc has becom so refined in ym view.., so I think I'll be changing once again.. as I have when I stopped using URL Manager Pro years ago... sometimes developers do weird things.. As far as I'm concerned the "Bookmark niche" is once again free for someone who develops a truly great product that synchs all my browsers or I'll do it with scripting.. Webbla looks good it seems but crashes on my system.. and all other offerings are outdated and no good. The singing chairs game has officially begun ;-)

Wait a minute! Sheepsystem's Bookdog site is a "malicious web site?" You've got to be kidding me, right? This is one of the best, most reliable, and honest developers of Mac software around. This has got to be some mistake on Websense's part, or else this is post about it is malicious. It seems really irreponsible not to go to the developer with this "news" first before posting something like this here. I just went to the Websense site, and anybody can report a "malicious" site by just plugging in a link and saying why they think it is "malicious." No indication of how Websense verifies any such reports or if their findings can be verified. Maybe Websense is a legit site, but if they don't explain their methodology for determining that a site is considered "malicious," how can the info be trusted? By the way, I have no relationship to Sheepsystem except as a highly satisfied customer who has had nothing but a great experience with the software and with the developer when I've need to report a problem.

I like most things about this application but not the fact that after I use it, Safari crashes if I try to drag a url into a bookmark folder. The only work-around I've found is to run Bookdog, quit Bookdog, go into Activity Monitor and kill the little piece of Bookdog that's still in touch with Safari, and then go into Safari's menu (once) for the Add Bookmark process. I hope someone finds an easier way to get the two to co-exist.

This is PRECISELY what I have been looking for. I've just scratched the surface, but it's fast and flawless so far. I've got my bookmarks synced between Safari, FF2 & 3 and Camino. It's also checking my bookmarks in the background as I type this. Something I've needed to do for a long time. I hate the icon, though.

bookdog is great!!!!!!! indispensable. it does so much more than alphabetize/sort (at levels one can control) browser bookmarks (it's pitiful that safari doesn't include such a basic feature when it comes to bookmakrs). i do not use most of its features, frankly, but like the fact they are there and at its reasonable price, it's worth it for just the sorting/validation/duplication identification features. developer was very responsive to an unusual request of mine (how to sort by date of creation/modification) with a workaround and upgrades - free - are almost weekly and painlessly installed and BBD relaunched. a must have rich ratzan

Really nice app. Syncs my three browser bookmarks flawlessly and the developer is extremely quick to respond to problems. I had a major glitch with BD unable to read my bookmarks in Firefox 3 beta (Minefield) and the developer spent several days working to find and correct the problem-which, it seems, was unique to me. Any software developer with this kind of response to user problems is NUMBER ONE in my book!

Great product-I have used this for a while, comparing it with URL Manager Pro. Both do a great job, but I find Bookdog to be better for my needs. It's simpler to understand, and it's easy to quickly update your bookmarks, sort, and copy as needed. Works well with Leopard. Highly recommended!

Something must be wrong with or unique to your system or your bookmark files. I have been using Bookdog for months and it's never caused a bit of problem, and I use it with all the browsers you mention. Perhaps you should contact the developer and see if you can get the problem sorted out, as it's certainly not an endemic problem.

This (cr)app has completely destroyed the bookmarking functionality of both Firefox and Safari. The bookmark manager in Safari is no longer accessible, and Firefox has lost the bookmarks toolbar functionality altogether. Anyone prepared to pay money for this needs their head examined.

It's a nice idea, but doesn't work properly. My source was Camino, which I attempted to sync with Firefox, Opera and Safari, by making those 3 browsers' bookmarks identical to Camino. None of the syncs was satisfactory. Firefox and Opera ended up with empty bookmarks toolbars. Safari got the correct bookmarks in the toolbar, but they had been rearranged alphabetically (not what I wanted). When I checked Camino (the source), its bookmarks toolbar had also been rearranged, even though I had not selected it to be touched. Extremely annoying. Now I have some work ahead of me to reorder Safari and Camino and reimport Firefox and Opera bookmarks manually. A total pain in the ass.

Bookdog is maturing very well. I have grown to appreciate much of Bookdog's take on bookmarks, having been a URL Manager Pro user for quite some time. However, where is the support for Flock??? I know that Flock hasn't gotten to nested folders yet, but wouldn't it be possible to use something similar to the tagging that Bookdog does when migrating bookmarks to Google Bookmarks? This would make the wait for nested folders in Flock more bearable.

Good .app. I found the GUI a little non-intuitive and aesthetically insipid. I prefer the cocoa aqua gooey look. To each his own, right. Nevertheless, this .app is an essential to keeping my bookmarks organized. Good features. Stable. I thought it was a little expensive at first but upon further use I relized how much effort the developer must of put in to make this happen. Ugly icon... I replaced it with this http://www.iconfactory.com/preview.asp?type=search&id=218&query=puppy. Overall... Sweet!

Great potential. Personally, my biggest beef is that Bookdog verifies by searching for the full path and not the domain (root) URL. There are a lot of commercial sites out there that use some sort of script when accessing the site. An example is amazon.com where you go to the root URL and the site loads a script so that the URL no longer reflects the root URL. Bookdog isn't sensitive to this and when completing verification wants to change the bookmark URL to reflect the script based URL. This is BAD for sites where the script URL changes often or each time you visit. The bookmark no longer reflects the domain (root) URL and you are forced to enter it manually and change the bookmark back to the "correct" domain URL.

I have been using this program since it was SafariSorter. I gladly paid the modest shareware fee when it ceased to be freeware, and the program works beautifully. The developer is continually updating and enhancing the application, and the one or two requests I made to the developer were all implemented in a short time. Unlike some other shareware schemes, there has been no additional upgrade fee between major versions ... my original license still works. The program actually does more that sort bookmarks; it also checks for duplicates and verifies links. The GUI is still a little funky (though, IMO, not hard to use). The app icon has improved dramatically FWIW.

This is not freeware. Please do not represent it as such. This is crippled DEMOware masquerading as freeware. _AFTER_ I spent forty minutes sorting bookmarks and deleting a multitude of duplicates the application informed me that my changes would not be be saved. I am at an age when I don't have a great many forty minutes to waste. This sort of rude behavior is a gross insult to users from a _dishonest_ developer. Although the application may be useful I would be a fool to purchase any product from a developer who begins his relationship with his users on a patently _fraudulent_ basis. ...gullyFoyle

I used safarisorter when it was free, then kept using it as bookdog which is not free. To the developer I say "thanks for a great product at a fair price". To his critics that say bookdog should be free I say "you're entitled to your opinion but I do not agree with you". For those folks that cannot get past paying for software, insisting that it be provided at no cost, I ask that you first direct your efforts at the oil industry and get us all free gasoline for life, then come back and work on this developer.

$15 is too steep a price for something that Apple will eventually build into the browser for free. For $5 maybe, but not $15. Sure it manages duplicates and helps find and fix broken bookmarks. But all I really need is sorting, and it is just an XML file. I think I will write a free program in RunRev until Apple wakes up.

The revisions of this app are always manifold in a positive way. It happily resides on my Mac's doing what it needs to do in a transparent manner. I grow tired of those who cannot seem to get past the "free" stage of software, as they remind me of those youth who grow up and still believe that mommy and daddy should pay their bills. Too bad as they miss the value of this app, and I am sure many others aspects of life. To the Developer: Please keep up the great work and please ignore the whiners.

Honestly, it's nothing more then developer stupidity to publish something for free, try to charge for it later, and then not realize they will lose a lot of marketshare. Don't developers ever stop and think about their market at all? Obviously people are going to be pissed for having to pay for something that was once free. If I was a developer, I would stop developing the free version (still give it away), and then start charging for a pro version with more features. It's the only respectable thing to do- I've already given something away for free, and to suddenly start charging for it basically disrespects the marketshare (people) I've already created, and who trust me to honor their investment in downloading my software.

I appreciate this piece of software for various and valid reasoning. It, for one, does exactly what it says and does it very well. The developer has been nothing but nice and very pleasant when dealing with me and a few bug/errors I didn't like. Now for the wishy-washy people out their all pushed over because this developer is now asking for a very small a reasonable fee need to get over your greedy ways! Think this developer is wealthy and doesn't need to eat? Well everyone makes a living someway and his small utility is a method of that. Besides $14.95 is going to break the bank huh?

I have to agree with the others that state Bookdog is overpriced for the functionality that it delivers. Saft (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/12402) has a more reasonable price tag considering Safari bookmark sorting is just one of its many features. I wouldn't pay more than $5 for a product like Bookdog. This might be a moot point because I'm sure eventually the Safari team will include sorting in a future version.

Always wanting something for nothing, complaining if that something for nothing doesn't work right in a revision. My suggestion is simply: Walk into the nearest Apple store and go to the top-of-line PowerBook, iPod or G5 tower, simply pick it up and walk out of the Apple store. If someone stops you launch go into your typical insipid tirade about "free". Now I am into "fair" and there is software I truly like, but I do not think they are being fair about the pricing and I say so. This software was once "free" and I remember when you went to the Developer's website and they had a political view. Boy, even though it was "free" people went nuts on the Developer and said how they were "forced" to read his political views (which was not the case). So the Developer couldn't win for losing. Now, the Developer is charging $14.95 for two (2) licenses and support for three (3) years which I think is both smart and "fair". The current version of this software is substantially beyond its humble beginnings in what it now does.

I agree with the other recent posts, but I'll be more positive. Wouldn't it have made business sense to keep this free and use it as a honeypot to attract people to your company's website, then sell other titles based on the great advertising of the free software? I would at the most pay $5 for this, but that's a maybe, as out-of-order bookmarks I can still live with, I just order my most frequently visited ones near the top. I am quite sure that someone will be motivated enough and community-minded enough to do their own version for free. You do deserve something for your hard work, but occasionally we all give something back to the community anyway, because everyone benefits that way.

For nearly 15$ I expect an application that can sort and sync bookmarks between all installed browsers with a nicer interface. Also it should make RSS-feed-bookmarks in all browsers.

Yet another fine freeware product transmuted into an exorbitantly and greedily overpriced commercial application. A shame that more and more Mac developers see the need to reverse their generosities by pulling works out of the Mac community and charging far, far, too much for them, eventually killing the golden goose.

This isn't shareware, it doesn't even count as a demo... After guiding you through the preferences to sort your bookmarks with a wonderful selection of different options (oh and by the way did you know bookdog does _this_?) and you've clicked 'sort' a window comes up explaining that it's not going to do what you've asked unless you pay some cash.. It's not even going to prove to you that it can do what it claims.. Not once! That doesn't count as shareware.. You can cut features out of a demo, but not the sole feature that a program exists for. To me this is a downloadable features page and nothing more... Should be donationware at its greediest...

This revision is very well done. I've used BookDog since the its beginnings, and it does what it does, when it is supposed to do it. The change in its icon is welcome, although I set BookDog (those of you whoa actually use BookDog will know what I mean) and forget it, so I never really see the icon.

This program is remarkably useful! It tends to give a very simple interface yet with powerful results. All aspects of the application are very intuitive. I am a very satisfied user; I highly recommend this program for organizing checking the validity of your bookmarks. A+++

Nice program - with 1800+ bookmarks (1800! where did they all come from?) keeping them in order is a must. The only improvement I can think of would be to make it capable of sorting bookmarks in other browsers. I use Safari, IE, Shiira, FireFox and SunriseBrowser so I can see how my pages look in multiple browsers, and I'd like to be able to sort bookmarks in all of them. Features: 5 - it does exactly what it says it does, no more, no less. Ease of Use: 5 - tell it once how you want your bookmarks sorted, and you're done. Value: 4 - yeah, I'm cheap - I miss the price of SafariSorter. Still worth it, though. Stability: 3 - I've had my Pismo up for weeks at a time, with SafariSorter running with no trouble at all. I'd give SafariSorter a 5; I'll have to run BookDog for a few weeks and see how it does.

Great little utility. The interface shows a great deal of thought and it works as advertised. There's even an uninstaller. Well worth the price.

A must-have complement to Safari 2.0. Bookdog takes all the work out of keeping one's bookmarks and bookmark folders organized. It not only gives you options for what's to be included in the alphabetical sorting of url's and their folders, but it also hunts for duplciates and allows you to choose which, if any to delete. Its developer provides excellent support and listens to suggestions. I used it as donate-ware in its earlier form as SafariSorter and was very pleased that its developer created Bookdog for Tiger and Panther's OS 10.3.9. Respectfully, Norm

Just installed and ran through the registration wizard, and the price comes up as $9.95 so I registered (I agree $19.95 is steep). Works as advertised.

I just bought it as you get two (2) copies for $9.95, up until the end of this month. Hey, I used the bloody thing for free for a long time, so helping this Developer out was no issue for me.

I tried this app after it was mentioned in the June Macworld (p. 50, "Jerry Krinock's SafariSorter (free [donations accepted]). This makes the price even more offensive because it looks like greed sparked by knowing a mention in a trade magazine means a lot of hits on the Web site. I know the alphabet and will do it myself, saving the $20.

SafariSorter was a handy little utility when it was free, but for $20, I'll take the time and sort my bookmarks by hand. I agree with the previous poster that $5 would have been much more reasonable.

$20??!! Not worth it for me. I can take a couple of minutes and sort bookmarks myself. Too bad. It's a nice little app, and, like a previous poster mentioned, $5 would've been ok -- $20 is way over the top for what this does.

SafariSorter still works for me. I deleted my Bookmarks.plist from my ~/Library/Safari folder, deleted SafariSorter and reloaded from a fresh download. For some reason the original download would not work. Good Luck. I'm happy thus far. (4/21/2005, Version: 3.11)

Were all Mac programs this slick and effective, seeking Nirvana would seem like a waste of time. Watching this program do its work is like like watching the little 7UP character say at the end... "Show 'em my motto!"

Does what it's supposed to do and keeps out of the way. Tip: Can force sort order by the old Classic way of adding 1 or more spaces to bring items to top or ~ to send to bottom of list.

I have used this app since it first came out and now it's transparent to me as I let it run in the background, managing my many bookmarks. I am thankful for this app and the political view is not forced upon you at all. I feel it is important to learn all facets of politics, so I hold no grievance toward this Developer.

Not only is this app one of the more ugly OS X apps in extence (pink window backgrounds), but the author is obviously a political activist with an agenda. Whatever you do, PLEASE make sure you research the current state of affairs in our world by doing more than just clicking and reading the mostly one-sided links that the author provides.

Fantastic! I can't tell you how frustrated I've been, and how many times I've emailed Apple about having to sort bookmarks manually. Thank you Jerry. The program works flawlessly. By the way, I agree with you 1000 percent on the payment issue:-)
