Well, I was very likely wrong to suggest that the review below was possibly by the developer. First, the software is good quality, not the sketchy variety usually associated with unethical reviews. Second, there are no suspicious-looking reviews for this dev's other product. Third, I've been in brief email contact with the dev, and he seems very helpful and forthcoming. I changed my mind about buying LLB too. I like the elegant layout and smooth keyboard navigation in particular. Also, its most direct competition, AllBookmarks, doesn't seem to have much development going on right now. It works fine, but it seems to have reached a point where they probably won't do much more with it feature-wise (fair enough, considering all the work the folks at Agile put into 1Password). Since LLB is at version 1.0, I think it's safe to expect some substantial improvements in the future.

No Sync Options. Only single Bookmark import. Getting all your Bookmarks in this tool needs you to export them form every browser and afterwards importing the exported File. Managing Bookmarks in its self is O.K. but that's already available with every Browser itself.

Jetzt mal eine Bewertung für deutschsprachige Anwender: Die Little Bookmark Box ist eine fast schon genial zu nennende App. Sie arbeitet unabhängig vom verwendeten Browser, man muss sich also keine Gedanken mehr dazu machen, wie man die lesezeichen von einem auf den anderen Browser bringt: LBB verwaltet das zentral und damit ist mal diese Sorgen ein für alle Mal los. Und die neue Version macht auch noch - wenn gewünscht - regelmässige Backups der Lesezeichen auf die iCloud. Etwas Besseres gibt es derzeit nach meiner bescheidenen Meinung nicht.

bookmark managers are the holy grail pour moi; Little Bookmark Box shows some clever thinking, but without heirarchy, dedup (passive & active) and a more expedient browser selection facility - it's a fail. (but i do appreciate that it doesn't involve info-rape in someone's cesspool cloud; hate that.)

I was very excited when I first got started with Little Bookmark Box as it tries to solve a problem which has not been properly tackled as yet. This little gem could be it!! However - since I have over 1000 bookmarks to sort, I very soon found out that this program has self-inflicted limitations that are not necessary on top of some not very thought out UI arrangements. Why diffentiating between "Boxes" and "Smart Boxes"?. No Need for this! Why isn't there an option to collect Boxes into Groups [Containers]? Why is the a different method for labelling sites and boxes? Why isn't there a way of setting the default browser?? And why isn't there a way of syncing with iCloud?? There are some really cool features like "Quick look" > again why creating a keybpard comand of command-Y if a simple tap on the space key works already!! The list goes on .. Good start but lot of space for improvement. Not really useful in its current state - hence only 2 star….

Excellent Absolute Must Have Programme!!! Easy to use, stable, really useful when using more than one browser, allows for colour coding of folders, makes organising and searching bookmarks so easy, eliminates duplicates and yet doesn't compromise or slow down the running of my other programmes. In addition the Developer is incredibly helpful and takes seriously requests for future development. Try it and you will see it really is super programme and you will wonder how you ever managed without it.

I've been using Little Bookmark Box for about a year, and have found it quite useful. It's very convenient to have a button on Safari's toolbar to add a bookmark, and "Smart Boxes" makes it easy to find pages that are relevant to my current interest. I also like the fact that it "lives" on the menubar and doesn't take up space on my Dock. Just press a function key and it's there! I've never experienced any problem with it - no crashes or hangs I could attribute to it. It seems to be happy running under Mountain Lion, too. I just had an issue trying to set a "Smart Box" that would contain pages I'd captured within the last week. I couldn't seem to get it to work so I wrote the developer. He replied a few hours later with an easy solution, so I give the developer high marks for responsiveness, too. A very useful little utility!

Short version: a very good and useful product! What is lacking: the ability to synchronize bookmarks across multiple Macs automatically via iCloud or some other means. I must use multiple machines and need synchronization.

Short version: Good product and probably useful on a go-forward basis, but importing loads of bookmarks will be loads of work, especially since their is no way to group boxes or create a hierarchy of bookmarks. Long version: It's a good product with a nice interface and easy to use, but for me there are two shortcomings -- Organizing imported bookmarks, and no grouping or hierarchy capabilities. I have over 1000 bookmarks organized within Safari in a fairly clean folder hierarchy. Importing them into Little BB just dumps them all into a box that I'll have to go through manually, moving them into an appropriate box. I know I can't expect "magic" from the product, but there is going to be a lot of effort to sort it all out without the hierarchy of the original import being maintained some way. Which leads to my second gripe. Being unable to create a hierarchy or put boxes into groups is also a limitation. Little BB gives you two groups, "Boxes" and "Smart Boxes". Currently, my bookmarks are in a multi-level folder hierarchy such as "databases/SQL Server" and "Languages/C++" Having to "flatten" my structure into a bunch of boxes is going to require a LOT of boxes, which I think will actually makes this less organized. I bought the product before discovering the above (my own fault), so I'm a little miffed that I think I'll just end up uninstalling it.

Any chance you'll add the same Safari Bookmarklets option for Firefox?

I'd prefer not to drag and drop; can one configure a keyboard shortcut to save the bookmark (the page being viewed)?

I can't tell you how many time I don't save a bookmark because my bookmarks are so unorganized and I just figure I will never find it anyway so why bother. Little Bookmark Box (LBB for short) has changed all that for me. I placed the LBB Bookmarklet into my bookmark bar in the 1st position so I can just select command 1 to activate the Bookmarklet and a window pops up allowing me to name, tag, locate and notate the url. It is so quick and effortless that I absolutely love it. I also love the quick look feature to view the web site prior to opening it or selecting another url. Try the trial version and I think you will see how helpful it really is.

I didn't try other bookmark apps but I stay with this one because it's fast, easy to organise with tags, comments, colored boxes & shortcuts. It never crashes and I can of course export my bookmarks, nice.

I drag a bookmark from FireFox 3.6.12 to Little Bookmark Box. When I open it from Little Bookmark Box it tries to open FireFox 4.x.

Little Bookmark Box is definitely the "best quality" choice if you are tired of clutter and mess in your bookmarks. I tried several tools, but none of them reached the range of functions of this program. Never mind which browser you are using, just drag your favorite URL's to the icon at the top bar and let Little Bookmark Box sort them using your own personalized smart bookmark boxes. As well you can create your own static folders. It works very well for my needs and ever since I installed Little Black Box, I doubled the number of my bookmarks and at the same time reduced the chaos in my browsers. So the only thing suitable is a full 5-Star rating.
