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 2.9.19:

There are only two small improvements in this version which affect Markster users. If neither of the following is implicated in how you use Markster, consider skipping this version and moving on with your day?.

  • Fixed encoding of non-ASCII characters in HTML (.html file) exports.  (Bookmark and folder names are now exported with only the five mandatory HTML control characters encoded, which removes a bug exporting characters in the upper Unicode planes.)
  • In the Inspector window now, the Name field is taller so that it can show three lines instead of one without scrolling.  (It still scrolls to show unlimited lines.)

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)?

Hello, ylluminate. The answer is: Markster (the app shown on this page). Markster is designed to keep your bookmarks in a separate, central store and only syncs to or from the internal bookmarks of Safari, Firefox or Chrome when you command it to do so manually. Our other two focused apps, Smarky and Synkmark, are designed to keep the browsers' internal bookmarks in sync automatically.

The Central Store concept of apps like Markster is nice if you only use bookmarks on your Mac, because syncing involves some "moving parts". However, if you also want to see the same bookmarks in the web browsers on your iOS or Android devices, or computers running MS Windows or Linux, you will need to sync with services such as iCloud, Firefox Sync, or a Google account. In that case, a syncing app such as Smarky or Synkmark can bridge between these services, and is what you need.

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.
