Keeps Safari, Chrome, and Firefox bookmarks in sync.

Overview

Synkmark is your bridge for keeping bookmarks in sync among Safari, Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi and Google Chrome. Synkmark can also keep your bookmarks alphabetized as you prefer, verified and free of duplicates. Synkmark is compatible with iCloud Safari, Firefox Sync, Opera Sync and Sign in to Chrome, so that if you use these apps on your iOS or Android device, you can have organized bookmarks on all of your devices. (Ours are the only non-Apple apps which can modify Safari bookmarks without corrupting iCloud data.) Download Synkmark to start your free trial. Synkmark is a member of the BookMacster family of apps, based on the same proven technology, but with a simplified user interface focused on syncing Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi and Google Chrome For other apps and pricing options, see the Bookmarks Manager Selection Guide on our site. One Synkmark license covers all the Macs used by one person.

What's new in Synkmark

Version 2.11.1:
  • In Preferences Syncing, the setting Minutes to wait before starting to import changes… has been renamed to Delay before starting to import changes….  Two new faster values, 10 seconds and 30 seconds are now available in the menu, and the default setting for new users and for users who have never touched this setting has been reduced from 5 minutes to 60 seconds.  (We feel that, with the improved syncing performance we have achieved over the last year or two, 60 seconds is the most appropriate choice for most users.)
  • Notifications of errors, warnings, or if so configured, normal syncing events are now presented via the macOS Notification Center, in accordance with current Apple recommendations. Users who have configured custom sound effects should visit Preferences Syncing Notifications to re-configure them.
  • In Preferences Appearance, the control to have large, small or no icons in the toolbar has been removed, because it does not play well in macOS 10.11 Big Sur.
  • Toolbars in .bmco document windows (the *main” window in Synkmark, Markster and Smarky) now have, more or less, the “new look” recommended by Apple for macOS 10.11.
  • Now supports import and export with iCab 6.  Import and export with earlier versions of iCab are no longer supported.
  • Now capable of import and export with Microsoft Edge Beta browser.  (Previously, our apps were and still are capable of import and export with Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Edge Dev.  The bookmarks sets of these three Edges are different.)
  • Added setting to Sort folders only or Sort bookmarks only when using the option to push bookmarks or folders to the top or bottom.  (In BookMacster, the controls for this new option are in the Collection window tab Settings Sorting.  In Markster, Synkmark and Smarky, these controls are in the Preferences window, tab Sorting.)  (This feature was added previously in version 2.10.25 but was removed in version 2.10.26.)
  • Fixed bug which caused expected launching and quitting of browsers to silently fail to happen in some cases.
  • Improved readability of Browser list presented during initial configuration, and the list in Preferences Syncing.
  • Improved readability of Client list presented when creating a new document, and the list in a document’s Settings Clients tab.
  • All four apps are now “Universal” apps which run natively on the new Macs built on Apple Silicon.
  • Reduces probability of a false Error 834003 being indicated when launching on Macs built with many cores, such as the new Macs built on Apple Silicon.
  • Changes made in the Inspector are now more reliably saved if the app is immediately quit.
  • When attempting to import from or exporti to Safari, the time added to the time allowed for the system to respond before abandoning the effort and declaring error 298441 or 398441, added when the operation is being performed by our Agent (BkmxAgent), has been increased from 20 seconds to 57 seconds, and also it is configurable as a new hidden preference named safariMoreAgentSecs.
  • In the Inspector window, the Name, Shortcut and Comments fields no longer treat tab or return keys hits as the user indicating done instead of as part of the edited value.
  • No longer warns about an extension needing to be installed in listed Browser/Clients after an export, if the export is a special export to a single Browser/Client.
  • Now installs our browser extensions into Brave such that they will work even if our extension is not installed in Chrome.  (Oddly, Brave and Opera piggy-back on Chrome’s Native Messaging Manifests.)
  • Sync Snapshots are now archived before each import in addition to before each export.
  • In Preferences Syncing, the setting Number of Sync Snapshots to keep has been changed to MB (megabyte) Limit for keeping old Sync Snapshots on disk; in other words, instead of limiting the number of files for each browser/client, we now instead limit the disk space used.  The value of users’ old Number of Sync Snapshots preference is migrated to the new MB Limit preference after multiplying by 12, up to a maximum of 1 GB.  For example, most users who still have the default 5 Number of Sync Snapshots will be migrated to a Limit of 60 MB.  Also, enforcement of the limit by removing older snaphots is now done every 24 hours when app or agent is running, instead of upon any export.

I'll give it a try, because BookMacster is impossible to figure out and seems to mess up my bookmarks instead of cleaning them up.
