Store bookmarks centrally instead of syncing.

Overview

Markster keeps your internet bookmarks in a central store. People use Markster because either:

  • The internal bookmarks facilities (Bookmarks Bar, Bookmarks Menu, Favorites Bar, etc.) in their web browser(s) do not meet their feature expectations.
  • They use more than one web browser, and prefer to keep all their bookmarks in a separate app, independent of the web browsers, instead of syncing the browsers' internal bookmarks facilities together.

When Markster users want to visit a bookmark they have previously stored, or add a new bookmark, instead of reaching for the Bookmarks Bar or Bookmarks Menu in the browser, they bring up Markster's Floating Menu. Markster provides three ways to do that:

  • Global Keyboard Shortcut, for example Cmd-Shift-D.
  • Dock Menu
  • Status Menulet (right side of Menu Bar)

The keyboard shortcut and/or status menulet are enable/disabled in Markster's preferences.

What's new in Markster

Version 2.11.1:
  • 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.
  • 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.)
  • Changes made in the Inspector are now more reliably saved if the app is immediately quit.
  • In Mini Search window, when running in macOS 11, scrollers no longer appear, and the list of results is no longer clipped.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Having found this developer's previous bookmarking tools extremely useful and reliable, I happily chose Markster when I realized that my FF set was growing too quickly to make it easily manageable. I was not disappointed. Markster is extremely fully-featured - the most extensive software of its kind that I came across when researching bookmark managers. It's also very robust and reliable. Reasonably-priced too, the developers are very responsive to questions, explaining anything which isn't immediately obvious (thanks to its rich feature set) in the Help that comes with it. Most impressive, perhaps, is the way in which the design has anticipated the way that users are likely actually to work when collecting and using bookmarks. It's hard to think of an operation that's not included in Markster - or imagine how it could have been implemented better. Surely the market leader.

I see 3 different bookmarking apps that Sheep Systems makes here. I thought it was quite clear at first what I was looking at, but once I started reviewing the products I became somewhat uncertain. @Developer, which of your products most closely compares with Pins (http://pinsapp.com)?

Is it just me, or has anyone else had the same difficulty reaching this dev's site? I've tried four different browsers, all led to a 404 page.
