|What is Bookmark Buddy?||
Bookmark Buddy is a sophisticated yet intuitive favorites organizer and login manager that keeps your Internet favorites, log-in details and notes secure and accessible no matter what browser you're using. It also lets you organize program, document and folder shortcuts with the same simplicity and reliability.
This is a quick summary of the main features (click on any of the screenshot icons to open a full-sized version):
Quickly find a bookmark
You know what it's like trying to find a bookmark you filed away weeks ago; often it's quicker to go back to Google and look it up there! But with Bookmark Buddy you can quickly find any bookmark because there are so many ways to reach it.
It's easy to quickly add a note to a bookmark: a description of the web site, customer reference or order details, shipping prices, or anything else you can think of.
Schedule your visits
Quickly file a bookmark
Accurate filing makes it so much easier to retrieve a bookmark later, but it's a chore scrolling up and down long lists of ever-expanding folders. URL Organizer introduced a simple 3-level filing system, and Bookmark Buddy makes it even easier to add bookmarks and move them around. Aliasing (filing in multiple locations) is a simple and easy way to avoid filing dilemmas.
Manage your log-in details
How many different site log-in names and passwords do you have to remember (or jot down on Post-It notes)? Well Bookmark Buddy can store them all, and encrypt your passwords so that you only need remember one password to retrieve any of them. Bookmark Buddy can also drop your log-in details straight into a web page or dialog box with a single keystroke or mouse click.
Protect your privacy
You probably have bookmarks that you'd rather others didn't have access to - commercially or personally sensitive? Well Bookmark Buddy can encrypt entire bookmark collections, including your log-in details and notes.
Check your bookmarks
Web sites get updated, move and disappear; but your bookmarks don't. Bookmark Buddy can quickly and quietly check all your bookmarks so that you know what's happened to the site since you last visited it.
Import your existing bookmarks
Bookmark Buddy can import favorites from Internet Explorer, MSN Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, AOL, Compuserve 2000, Yahoo Toolbar, and other applications that support the Netscape bookmarks file format.
Export & print your bookmarks
Bookmark Buddy includes an extremely flexible export facility, allowing you to transfer your bookmarks (or any subset of them) to a printable document, web page, spreadsheet, XML document, and most browser formats. For an example of an exported web page, see here.
Work in any language(s)
With the Unicode Edition you can store bookmarks and notes in any language, including those that do not use the Latin character set (such as Russian, Polish, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, etc), or even in multiple languages.
Take your bookmarks with you everywhere
Copy the Portable Edition of Bookmark Buddy and you bookmark list(s) onto a USB memory stick, MP3 player or floppy disk, and you can access all of your bookmarks, log-in details and notes on the move.
Bookmark Buddy costs just US$ 29.95, but if that's more than you're prepared to spend, then take a look at the alternatives.
