Linkman Lite Allows Multi-Browser Bookmarks Manager To Sync All Bookmarks On Windows (5)

One of the biggest issues for users who work with different web browser is synchronization. This includes passwords, log in information and of course bookmarks. Most browsers come with synchronization options, but those only include synchronizing bookmarks between versions of the same browser. And the import option is only important a certain state which means that updates are not included. Linkman Lite from Outertech is a free tool for collecting, centralizing, and managing bookmarks from 10 different browsers. It integrates with Firefox and Internet Explorer as well as the interesting Maxthon. But it's capable of much more, such as the ability to organize and sort bookmarks by keywords, comments, folders, paths, and other filters; synchronize bookmarks and links between two programs or two separate computers; automatically check and update links and delete duplicates; and import and export saved files. You can also color-code bookmarks, protect your bookmark files with a password, set hot keys, save all the links on a page, and customize the templates, interface, grids, and tools.

Linkman Lite's interface has a familiar left-hand tree view for bookmarks and a main window to display specific selections, such as a folder of links or the results of a search. A compact tabbed view for comments, descriptions, and user-defined entries as well as fields for entering ratings, changing the name or path, and entering keywords runs under the toolbar, which is packed with colorful icons controlling all the program's primary functions, including previously mentioned features as well as a Links Collector, URL validation tool, and other frequently accessed items. We clicked Import/Firefox 3 Bookmarks, and Linkman Lite navigated directly to the right folder--a good start, considering it would have taken a while to find it manually. But it loaded our most recent bookmarks in the tree view. Clicking any folder or range of bookmarks showed them in the main view. Clicking any bookmark opened the page in the selected browser, in this case, Firefox 3.6.11. Linkman Lite replaces your browser's native URL handling and promises faster browsing, and pages did seem to load a little quicker. The duplicate finder and link updater did a fine job with our collection of literally thousands of links, some years out of date. There's a recommended online tutorial and a good Help file for sorting out this flexible program's many options and features.

If you've ever switched browsers, upgraded your OS, or migrated to a new PC, you can appreciate what a pain it can be to get your old bookmarks back and how difficult life is without them. Linkman Lite makes it easy. It's by far best solution we've tried for keeping your bookmarks safe and up to date.

It appears that only one set of bookmarks can be open at the same time in the free light version of the bookmarks manager. There are a few workarounds though to overcome this issue. It is for instance possible to merge the open set of bookmarks with Internet Explorer Favorites. That’s likely the best option before managing and exporting those bookmarks again. The pro version supports appending bookmarks or synchronizing bookmarks.

Bookmarks are opened via the File menu. Internet Explorer favorites can be opened via File > Open IE Favorites, other bookmarks via File > Import.

All bookmarks are then displayed in the lower half of the program window. All bookmark folders are displayed on the left side, the bookmarks on the right. Searching and sorting options are available to filter the contents in real-time. A double-click on a bookmark loads the site in the default web browser, a right-click options to manage the bookmarks. This includes editing and deleting options, options to add the currently opened site in the default browser to the set of bookmarks or to add the selected bookmark to the default browser.
