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 2.9.15:
  • Fixed a bug which sometimes caused Error 992544 on some Macs after our app performed a syncing operation in the background, and also further improved the information in that error to aid pinpointing of any similar bugs.  We hope there are no other such bugs, and so Error 992544 will not be seen any more.  But if anyone still sees Error 992544, please click the life preserver button in the dialog and send us the data in the email which will be generated.
  • When exporting certain URLs which have invalid paths or strangely encoded path portions to Chrome, Chromium, Vivaldi, Brave, Opera, Firefox, and Safari, in certain cases, now better emulates the auto-correction of these URLs by these browsers, eliminating churn in subsequent imports and exports with these browsers.
  • When an open document is modified on disk, presumably from another Mac, via Dropbox or iCloud Drive, the changes now appear in the existing document window, instead of closing that window and opening a new one.

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.
