I just downloaded the trial from here and the program will not even open after several attempts. I'm using a Mac Pro with OS 10.7.2.

I downloaded to the desktop, then moved it into the applications folder. It doesn't have to be unzipped. Downloads as an app ready to open. No error messages.

I've increased the rating since your support has been so good (I don't believe I can change my rating here in this thread however). Coolector is a cool app with excellent customer support. It will only improve with time.

It's useful and simple but not something to revolutionize bookmark management. But I would like Agile to develop the ultimate bookmark management app because if any company can do it, it's them. 1Password is the finest Mac utility out there.

I had high hopes for this program but after playing around with it for a day, I essentially find it useless for my needs. This program is worth no more than $10.

The Pros:
I can annotate each bookmark to my heart's delight with tags and notes (I have approximately 4500 bookmarks). I can import my bookmarks from Safari. And I can make smart collections.

Other Feedback:
There's List View and Grid View. There is no Cover Flow feature. As other reviewers have complained, the screen captures for each site are too blurry.

But the main reason I find the program useless is for the features it lacks. It lacks foresight to think that a user would want to switch back and forth between two programs to click and navigate to bookmarked sites. If I use the Webbla Safari extension bookmarklet to add and annotate a new site...that's great...but how do I get it back or at least have access to it again in Safari? I use Safari's Bookmark Bar quite often for the sites I frequent the most. The bar is organized in logical folders with quick access. Webbla basically suggests that I forget about the bookmark bar, click over to the Webbla app from Safari, and look for an equivalent folder collection with, let's say, my Facebook login page. It's totally counterintuitive and tedious.

Ideally, the two apps need to be synched up with an understanding that Safari relies on folders and nesting, while Webbla is structured by smart folders, folders, and tags. But without this integration, Webbla becomes a chore.

Webbla also lacks the features found on Bookdog, like sorting, verifying, and analyzing duplicates.

Using Webbla in List View mode, if I sort by the Page column, the bookmarks are not in proper alphabetical order. It seems like they want to be, but it's not exactly correct.

When you re-import bookmarks from Safari, Webbla only updates the changes instead of re-importing everything again. That's good, but if you delete a bookmark in Safari, then re-import again into Webbla, Webbla doesn't delete the bookmark from the previous import. Webbla creates a new collection folder for the new import, so you have to delete the old folder from a prior import.

For now, the program isn't very useful because of the lack of true integration with a browser and because of other lacking features mentioned above. I might use it simply as a standalone program--occasionally reimporting my Safari bookmarks--to tag and get a better view of my bookmarks, hopefully to integrate more solidly upon future releases.
