Markster for Mac2.12

27 September 2021

Store bookmarks centrally instead of syncing.

What is Markster for Mac

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 2.12:
  • No longer exports to the legacy Bookmarks Menu hard folder in Safari.  During your first export to Safari with this version or later, any items in a Bookmarks Menu will be appended to any existing items in Safari’s root level instead.  So, the items will still appear in the main menu Bookmarks on your Mac as they always have.  But in Safari on any iOS devices synced by iCloud, they will appear at the root level, and the legacy Bookmarks Menu which previously appeared under Favorites in iOS will be gone.  Summary: Although this is a rather serious change under the hood, you may not even notice it.  Your bookmarks will be organized more uniformly across macOS and iOS devices, and more importantly, you will avoid a couple of new issues which we have seen when the legacy Bookmarks Menu is populated in macOS 12 Monterey.
  • Can now export new folders to Safari in macOS 12 (Safari 15), instead of crashing the underlying process (Pajara or SheepSafariHelper) while indicating indeterminate progress, and finally, after 5 minutes, failing and displaying timeout Error 591200, with a Suggestion to fix… that does not work.
  • Corrected the Full Disk Access warnings and errors to give better information for macOS 11.4 and later, since when Apple requires that our syncing agent (BkmxAgent) be granted Full Disk Access on its own because it no longer just inherits it from BookMacster, Synkmark or Smarky.
  • When exporting to Safari, now checks to see if there is one or more groups of folders at root or in Reading List with the same name, at least one of which is empty, and if so, aborts the export with a new Error 394842, which suggests how to fix the issue, instead of allowing the export to fail with Error 772030 because Safari rejects such folders.
  • Fixed a few more pathological cases which could cause churn when exporting to Chrome-ish browsers bookmarks whose scheme portions of their URLs are, in certain ways, invalid or non-standard in the eyes of Chrome.  (Chrome will either modify the scheme to make it valid and standard, for example by lowercasing uppercase alphabet characters, and/or prepending “http://” and percent-encoding disallowed characters; or in some cases just ignoring the bookmark.  For simplicity and robustness, our fix here is to simply not export any such bookmark, the same as we have for years not exported bookmarks other bookmarks which have URL characteristics previously found to not play well with Chrome.)

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.
