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 2.10.24:
  • Fixed a bug which would cause a crash when items in a deep folder which are included in previously-found duplicates were copied to the clipboard.
  • Fixed a long-standing bug which caused the metadata of a new Collection to not be written to the file until the second time a document was saved.  This probably had bad effects only if the user created a new empty Collection and then immediately closed it.  Although this is not likely in real life, but it happened in testing :)
  • During an import or export operation, the progress indicators in the Status Bar (bottom) of the Collection window now show the progress when running in recent versions of macOS, as they did in older versions of macOS.  In most cases, with a Collection size of less than a couple thosand or so bookmarks, these indicators appear and disappear in milliseconds, so you don’t see them.  But they have been helpful in some cases.
  • Fixed a bug which may have caused an unnecessary document Save operation to proceed, or at least to appear to proceed, displaying the result Save in the Status Bar at the bottom of the Collection window, even when there were no changes to save.  We are not sure whether or not there were more significant ill effects.  We are just cleaning some things up here :)

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.
