Last night I spent a hour cleaning up and organizing my bookmarks using BookMacster, and it such a pleasure to use, and saved me so much time finding duplicates and in organizing some 6,000 bookmarks, down to 4,200, I just had to write a review here.
Once BookMacster had helped my find and eliminate (or allow!) duplicates, I then used it to verify my links and found 350 plus dead links, which I also got rid of.
One of the biggest helps was the incredibly powerful and flexible "Find" function under the Reports tab. You can search for type, tags, url, comments, date modified, last visited, verified status and on and on. With various searches, I was able to then move large groups of links to new folders, or delete, or rename, or whatever.
I can't imagine massage 6,000 links without BookMacster (I'm a editor/writer, and have collected so many links over the years.) Today,my bookmarks are slimmed down and organized and are so much easier to use now.
But of course, the organizing and searching and modifying powers of BookMacster aren't even the main reason I bought BookMacster; the big feature is how *easy* it is to sync my bookmarks with Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, Omniweb, and iCab, as well as with Google. Since I'm constantly jumping around between browsers, this feature is just essential for me. Myself, I like to do "manual" syncs whenever I want, but BookMacster also has a fabulous "agents" feature that allows you to have all your browsers sync with one another behind the scenes. Like magic, if you add a link in one browser, it shows up in another when you fire that browser up. BookMacster also has Add-ons/Extensions for Firefox and Google Chrome that facilitate your synching options.
I could go on and on about BookMacster, and have been using it since I "upgraded" from Bookdog, another terrific, but far less powerful bookmark program from Sheep Systems. And speaking of Sheep Systems, the few times I've had trouble with the program, the support has just been outstanding, and swift.
Are there any downsides to the program? Well, it did take me a little while to "grok" the program and understand how it looked at synching and the bookshelf concept, but once I got into it and learned how it worked, it was really simple.
I have no affiliation with Sheep Systems, but am just a very satisfied customer who wants to say how much I appreciate a program that I use regularly, and that saves me hours and hours of work and stress.
