Mac Bookmark Managers

Mac Bookmark Managers: Once upon a time, a very long time ago, I used a Mac Bookmark Manager called URL Manager Pro. As time went by it began to feel like Alco Blom, the developer, had lost interest in his app. I found a new bookmark manager called Webnote (originally WebnoteHappy). Unfortunately, once again, as time past, it felt as though the developer, Luis de la Rosa, was losing interest.

from URL Manager Pro to Webnote to Webbla

Shortly after I installed Mac OS X 10.7 Lion I started looking for a modern, 64 bit, Cocoa, Objective-C, Mac bookmark manager that was being actively developed and that interfaced nicely with both Delicious and Pinboard. I also hoped to find a Safari extension designed to work with the bookmark manager.

I discovered Webbla. Webbla was exactly what I was looking for.

The Webbla website does a great job of describing Webbla’s bookmark library management features.

“If you like to handle your music and photos with iTunes and iPhoto, Webbla is the right application to handle your bookmarks.”

I love the way the Webbla team advertises “sunny mac software” from the island of Mauritius. These folks are very pleasant and are a pleasure to communicate with.

BTW, yes, I had a quick look at BookMacster, but it wasn’t quite what I was looking for.

If you’ve been searching for a Mac bookmark manager, you need to check out Webbla.

    Except that the Chrome functionality we’ve been promised for months now has yet to be released, and v1.5 has languished in beta for months as well. While Webbla is nice, it is vitally important that anyone who purchases it understand that the developer is NOT prompt in releasing updates. We’re now over a month into Lion and we’re still awaiting a non-beta release of a version promised months prior to Lion…

  2. When I upgraded to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, I stopped using Chrome. In my experience, the beta version of Webbla works very well with Safari 5.1. I agree with your comment that, “Webbla is nice… “

  3. Thanks for review, DrFrank! As a see there are not so much a simple, elegant, portable Mac solutions to keep all your passwords/bookmarks. Spent second week in googling for a such thing…

  4. Andy, have you checked out 1Password for managing your passwords?
