2.0.0b44

Powerful yet easy bookmarking (beta).

Overview

Webnote is a better bookmark manager for your Mac.

Remember your Bookmarks
It can be hard to remember why you made a bookmark. Add a note to your bookmark to remind you why it was important to you. You can also add a tag or keyword to categorize your bookmark. Folders are available for organizing your bookmarks as well.

Research
Webnote is an essential research tool for many users. While you are researching an interest of yours, you can tag each bookmark with the name of your interest, whether it's "vacation" or "workouts". Then, use the tag browser or search to find all the bookmarks related to your research.

Shop
Shopping online is more popular nowadays. If you shop at one store, they have a cart for you. Once you start shopping at many stores, it can be hard to track everything especially if they're all for a certain day like Valentine's Day, Christmas or another special day. Use Webnote and tag each one "valentine", then use a smart folder to generate your shopping list. You can add a note to each gift to say who it's for or why they might like it over another. Or reward yourself by shopping for yourself and add notes to each bookmarked item to say why you want it (and deserve it.)

Social Bookmark
Share your bookmarks with social bookmarking sites like Delicious. That way people can benefit from your expertise and find which sites are popular based on the people they like and respect. In the future, Webnote will support other social networks.

Create Your Own Personalized Search Engine
Once they have built up a collection of bookmarks in Webnote, people find that it is useful to search their Webnote database first before consulting other search engines. The results are more personalized to them and contain personal notes and tags or keywords.

To update my post below about WebNoteHappy, Luis, author of WebNoteHappy, returned to his website in February and has already issued an update to his excellent Bookmark utility. He now calls it WebNote. Like the poster below, I use this program frequently, and, am glad he is back and working on a new update (beyond 1.3.3). Bob T

It's not abandoned. I use it every day with OS X 10.9.4 and it works fine. The download links work, too. 26,000 bookmarks (with many tags) and counting. I should note that syncing with Delicious hasn't been important to me, so I can't vouch for that part of it..

Gave it a try: imported 7227 Safari bookmarks no problem, right into a flat list of bookmarks! It doesn't preserve the folder hierarchy, lol. Like I'm going to tag over 7000 unorganized bookmarks. FAIL. I swear every bookmark manager I've tried is made for people with less than 100 bookmarks.

Xenophile - I think you're looking for something in WebNote's windows that aren't there. You won't find folders - or nested folders - as in a browser's bookmarks manager. However, you will find tags imported from th browser that correspond to the folders (and nested folders). For example let's say that, in Safari, I have a bookmark for MacUpdate inside a folder called Updates, and Updates is also in a folder called Mac. If, in WebNote, I select File > Import from Safari. I'll then find an entry in WebNote for MacUpdate. At the bottom of the WebNote window, I'll see two tags - one for Mac, and another for Updates. I understand that your 7227 bookmarks don't appear the way you're used to in Safari (or another internet browser). But they do have organization to them by virtual of the tags that are assigned.

@Kessler: yes, I know all about tags. I access my Safari bookmarks via hierarchical menus from the bookmarks bar, similar to 99% of all Safari users. Tags are fine as a secondary tool for finding bookmarks in a different way, but they are not a convenient primary tool to access when using Safari.

The auto-tagging adds tags dependent on the folder structure, which is a nice touch but hardly adequate for migrating entirely to tag-based management. Again, I'm not going to sit at my computer to tag my 7000+ bookmarks - not even if Webnote pays ME $25.

Update please? I wasn't able to import all of my bookmarks into the beta, and the last release is buggy in Snow Leopard.

Gave up on it a while ago. I'm using the Firefox delicious add-on, it works well as long as Yahoo doesn't completely ruin delicious.

I might give it up, too. Haven't used it much on Snow Leopard anyway, though don't recall noticing any bugs when I did.

Just now downloaded the .dmg at my location on the Pacific coast of Mexico and the image mounted with no issue on a MBP C2D/Safari Version 4.0.3 (5531.9), OS X 10.5.8. Try clearing your browser cache and/or redownload or try another browser.

I've used this product for over two years, and it's open on my computer about 98% of the time. One click on the bookmarklet in Safari or Firefox's bookmarks bar sends the URL and the page title to your WebnoteHappy file as a webnote, and you can instantly assign searchable keywords to the note. Press another keystroke, and the bookmark is sent to your delicious account. Double-clicking a webnote opens it in your default browser. I only wish I could easily copy _both_ the URL and web page title from the WNH webnote to, for example, a Mail window. (Only the URL copies with drag and drop.) In addition, copying (or dragging) more than one webnote and web page title at a time would be great, too. Control-clicking on a webnote to choose the browser would make this application perfect. (I've not asked the developer for these features - yet. The family license (for only 20% more than the single-copy license) makes it an even better buy.

I have used WebnoteHappy for about a year. Luis, the author of this program was very responsive until the last few months. His last post on his Blog at his website was in July, 2008. I was able to contact him in September for support. In November, he did not answer an Email. Does anyone know what has happened to Luis? His program is very useful to me. I hope he has not gone on to better things?
