Editors' Review

+

With the exception of a few minor issues, this bookmark manager is near the top of the heap. URL Gather's straightforward interface is extremely easy to navigate.

Once you create categories and subcategories, adding a new URL is a cinch. You can either add the URL with a simple click while browsing or enter it manually in the required field. The import/export feature worked extremely fast, with all of our IE bookmarks instantly appearing in the tree menu. Likewise, we were able to locate specific bookmarks using the Search feature. Security is not an issue, as it comes with password protection.

Occasionally, Web pages were slow to load upon launch, and we couldn't get a shortcut button to appear in our Internet Explorer window as promised. Even so, URL Gather's simple design makes this a great bookmark manager for those new to this type of tool or for those who don't want to fuss with too many bells and whistles.

"Great idea - doesn't import I.E. or Firefox bookmarks!"

December 07, 2008  |  By eagerles

 |  Version: URL Gather 1.5.2

Pros

Great idea having all my bookmarks in one place rather than having to import and export bookmarks when in different browsers.

Cons

Despite trying several times and then re-installing several times it refuses to successfully import bookmarks from Firefox or I.E.!

"Works great. Easy to catalog and find URL's."

December 03, 2008  |  By CheBJP

 |  Version: URL Gather 1.5.2

Pros

1) Simple, clear interface.
2) Able to search for terms/words in Title, URL or user-added description field.
3) Easy to add/catalog URL's from IE context menu.

Cons

1) Very slow to open on FIRST USE at install time.
2) Slower than expected to open on first use during browsing session.

Summary

URL Gather works as advertised. It's not fancy and has a bare-bones interface. I wanted something that would let me add descriptive "tags" to URL's and search on them. URL Gather works great for this and provides search results quickly. You can then go to sites in the search resolts with a click. On the first launch of the program after install, URL Gather opened, but then appeared to be frozen. This went on for quite a long time (5-10 minutes). I thought it might be frozen or not compatible with my system. Eventually it opened and now opens OK every time. This could scare some people off, but be patient, it works fine. I haven't tried any others, so I can't compare it to other products.

"Ver, VERY unhappy!"

November 09, 2008  |  By wyrmsting

 |  Version: URL Gather 1.5.2

Pros

Pros? None that I could find. the program refused to work as well as the previous version I once had. It refused to work at all!

Cons

Had (and threw away) a previous version of URL Gather in favor of this "new" version. Downloaded it three times to get an installable version, then could not import favorites saved in IE7, even after uninstalling and re-installing the program.

Summary

Could not import IE7 favorites because the program froze up then shut down at every attempt to do so -- EVERY TIME. I could create Mains, Subs, and Items on an individual basis, but could not impprt anything from anywhere, not even another URL Gather file ... Useless!

Pros

The program does what it does the way I want it done. It's easy to use and to show others how to use.

Cons

It doesn't do everything I wish it would, but what it does do I am happy with
