Imports all the bookmarks stored in your browsers and allows you to keep a centralized database, without having to sync the browsers’ bookmarks managers
Markster is an easy to use macOS application that can import the bookmarks from various web browsers in order to help you create a centralized, well-structured links database.
Moreover, Markster can prove to be useful if you need more complex bookmarks management solutions, or if you want to have the complete list of URLs bookmarked in your browsers, without having to synchronize the internal bookmarks managers.
Create a complete bookmarks database by importing all the links stored in your web browsers
What’s more, the Markster app enables you to access your bookmarks directly from the app, by utilizing a global hotkey, the Dock menu, or a status bar menulet. All these options are quite handy if you are using multiple web browsers at the same time.
Markster offers you the possibility to add new bookmarks manually, but to get things started faster you have the option to import bookmarks from your Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox, or Opera browsers. Even though the app includes both import and export functionalities, these tools are to be used only for the setup and backup.
Within the Markster main window, you get to organize your bookmarks into multiple folders, to add separators, to apply different sorting methods, and so on. The utility can help you get rid of duplicate entries, integrates search capabilities, and can automatically generate reports.
Access your bookmark collection from a centralized location
Furthermore, Markster allows you to open directly any of the stored bookmarks, via the app’s main window, or by using a status bar menulet. This way, you do not have to remember in which browser you bookmarked a certain URL: everything will be easily accessible from a single place.
Bottom line, the Markster utility provides an alternative solution for dealing with your bookmarks collection: instead of syncing all your browsers together, you get to use a third party app and access the URLs in any app you like.
What’s new in Markster 2.6
April 5th, 2018
- Fixed a bug which caused the sheet indicating Sync Status has changed… and prompting Export to sometimes appear two or three times after clicking the Syncing button to make syncing ready.
In the Syncing button in the document toolbar, the Ready state is now indicated by a yellow dot instead of a green dot, to emphasize the fact that syncing is Ready but does not begin until the window is closed:
- Now supports importing and exporting the old Netscape .html files which are still exported and imported by most web browsers and bookmarking services.
- No longer mangles IPv6 numeric literal URLs upon entering them.
No longer fails with Error 54367 when attempting to export to a loose native browser file, or export to a browser installation which has not created a bookmarks file yet (because user has not created any bookmarks):
- If the Launch in Background preference is switched on, and a web browser is the active application before the app is launched, and the app is launched from the macOS Dock or LaunchPad, and one or both Global Keyboard Shortcuts are configured, those keyboard shortcuts now work (as expected) in the web browser immediately, without the user first needing activate a different application and then return to the web browser.
